Just a few snapshots from my recent trip to Michigan for By Hand Serial Lookbook No. 5 . . . the really beautiful photos will be in the book!  Issue #5 will be published in late January 2018 (byhandserial.com).

Best breakfast in the trip at Red Spire – unbelievably located in what used to be an institutional hospital in Traverse City, now renovated to house restaurants and shops.

Michigan 2

Sunset on the beach in Leland on the northern peninsula – we watched several intrepid souls surfing (they were wearing full body wetsuits, understandably!)

Michigan 3

Early morning mist rises over one of the thousands of lakes in Michigan – this little one, which we had all to ourselves, is located halfway between Leland and Traverse City.

Perfect afternoon knitting on Mackinaw Island, on the patio of the Hotel Iroquois.

Sunset from Mackinaw Island – at this time of year, we could see both the sunrise and the sunset over the water!  You can see the Mackinac Bridge in the background – an almost five-mile wide suspension bridge, the longest suspension bridge between anchorages in the western hemisphere.

A glorious climbing hydrangea creates an entrance to one of the beautiful Victorian mansions on Mackinaw Island (once you got out of the touristy town center, that is).

Just one of the amazing meals we had at the Hotel Iroquois.

Lake Michigan was unbelievably clear and turquoise blue along its shores.
