Up North Just The Two Of US

                                            Monday  9/14/15
After all the company had left, we needed a break. We took our left over gift certificate money that our realtor, Mark Kowalske, had given us for picking him in the purchase of our home, and went to the Cafe Sante'.
I got one of my favorite drinks, a chocolate martini
Joe just stuck to the free water, plain or bubbly. He is too scotch to order a drink in a restaurant even though he likes to drink.
It's a nice restaurant in down town Boyne City on Lake Charlevoix.
On Monday nights they have $5 pizza's. They had two kinds of pizza to pick from. Mine was a gorgonzola cheese and corn and spinach. ( Their pizza choice ingredients come from left overs that need to be used up.
Joe had some kind of sausage pizza. Joe's pizza's looked burned to me, but the waitress said the pizza's are wood fired Neapolitan style and suppose to look this way.
September had some really beautiful weather this year. The waters were extremely calm and clear with very little boats action on the lake.
It was almost magical with the calm and crystal clear waters.

We took the boat out several times and on this day we reached an area we had never been to yet. The lake had been like glass until we turned the corner to enters the South arm. Here the water had very small waves.  At this narrows area, there is a ferry that costs $3.25, to take your car across to the other side. The total travel time across the water is about 3 minutes.
On the other side of the ferry, is the restaurant the "Landing" It has been closed all summer because it is being completely remodeled.
As we headed down new territory of the South Arm, we saw the first house boat on the lake that we have seen.
Check out the boat. It is almost as big as the house boat.
There were some pretty big home on this part of the lake.
This is the biggest house on the whole lake that we have seen so far.
I hate the color of it but look at the boat garage.
It is quite the compound of a house.
First island that we have seen on this lake.
Mallery came with us this day. Joe drove slowly, as we enjoyed the beautiful day, which also makes it much better for Mallery.
Mallery recently saw her veterinarian and had blood test to check her kidney levels. Her creatine improved by 1 but her BUN got worse by 1. The Dr said the Creatine is much more important. She also wanted to check her liver levels because she thought for sure it would probably be getting bad. Fortunately her liver levels were great and in normal limits. Because Mallery had a digestive episode the prior day she wanted us to give Mallery her fluid treatment daily for 2 weeks and then back to every other day. We just finished up the 2 weeks of daily treatments and started back to the every other day. Luckily Mallery has seemed to mellow out with the treatments. I must be getting good at it because she hardly flinches. This of course makes it much easier for all of us.
As we headed back toward home, we had to stop for the 4 car capacity ferry to go by, as we exited the South Arm.
When we got home Mallery got real excited  to be on land again!
Oh how she loves to be back home again.
What a beautiful September day at Lake Charlevoix.


  1. What a great day! I love the pics of Mallory too, so nice to see her enjoying her life to the fullest and as much as she can. You and Joe are such good doggie parents. :)

    1. Thanks Honey, It would be way to difficult if we were not retired. We are Blessed, so we can share that Blessing with our little Fur Baby for as long as she is with us.
