Sunday on Madeline Island

 Sunday we spent the day flying to and visiting Madeline Island.  We had beautiful weather and had wonderful flight, but somehow I felt robbed because we really needed a few more hours inhaling the clean island air and enjoying the sites in relaxing fashion.  Biking to LaPointe was a heated mess on our fabulous fold up bikes, but really how lucky I am to have such wonderful adventures at a moments notice.

It's with History

The line was long but moved swiftly. It was nice to see people young and old alike, both men and women entering their prized possessions creatively handmade.
