I'm planning a heist and it's better than robbing a bank... I'm stealing the sights, sounds, smells and splendor of Michigan's diverse seasons and I need an accomplice. Our crime spree cuts a wide swath through southeast Michigan and perhaps beyond, fueled by spontaneity and squandering of our spoils.
We're on the run from authorities so we need to keep moving! Day trips and secluded kayak excursions to avoid capture, blending in with townsfolk on bicycles and at art fairs, and losing our trail by ducking into music venues, posing inconspicuously for photos with animals at the zoo, losing our pursuers in the crowd at A2's Farmers Market and assorted dining, frolicking and cavorting activities, like washing your dog. I'm preparing to take dance lessons, because classy mobsters do that sort of thing.
I moved back to Michigan in 2009 after being away 40 years. It's so beautiful here! I pass four lakes to get to the grocery store and it always makes me smile.
Kayaking was almost an accidental discovery and it's a favorite hobby during the summer. In 2013, I challenged myself to paddle 100 miles in two weeks on 30 lakes in Oakland Co. It was a fun goal to achieve.
