I decided to wake up early and take pictures of the sunrise. Thinking that I’d be alone, I was happy to find myself in the company of two love birds sleeping on a patch of ice in the water. They didn’t seem to mind me being there, so I took a couple of shots.


Today I’m leaving  the island for a week to embark on a journey down south. Always wanting to visit the place where my family’s fudge shop all started, I booked a train ride down to Atchison, KS, birthplace of Amelia Earhart ~ and also May’s Candy Shop! It will be great to experience a train ride for the first time, catch up with my cousin & brother during the trip, and to see where our family tradition all began…..
