Fishtown

Visitors to Leland, Michigan are familiar with this site. The historic shanties, docks and buildings in this remarkable setting are still in operation. My favorite shop is the Village Cheese Shanty. I cannot possibly visit Leland without stopping in. The sandwiches are definitely big enough to share, but this is one place where that does NOT happen! We always need to get two, so we can try more than one kind. My favorite is the sandwich made famous because well-known chef Mario Batali likes it: I think it’s called Lake Effect. You MUST try it if you’re ever up that way! And get the pretzel bun. The place is just a little hole-in-the-wall building, and priced so reasonably, but don’t let that fool you! OK, this is one of those posts where I forget that I’m blogging about art, not food! I fell into that trap last fall when I posted my eclair adventure while on a photo expedition.

I hope you can feel the kind of hot sun that makes your eyes squint as you view this painting. And I hope that the rest of your summer brings many opportunities to enjoy the beautiful outdoors!
