What a difference a week makes. Last week was still fairly busy, this week we could hold a dance on M 22. Thankfully this was a disaster-free summer and I think everyone did well and had a good time. A lot of traffic, bikes and pedestrians still mistakenly think that if they put a foot on the road, cars must stop. Luckily no accidents. It would be much like auto/pedestrian roulette. A little ditty, Cautious rider to her reckless dear. Lets have less bull and a little more steer.

The Glen Lake Bridge Walk will be held Monday at noon. As always we will begin on the north side of the Narrows Bridge across from the Marina and proceed all the way to the other side. There is no time limit, take your time and if necessary rest halfway in order to make it the entire that way. The Compass Rose Bakery and owner Janice Richards will provide Hot Dogs and Brats at the end of the walk. Collectors T-shirts are still available at Roman Jones in Empire and at Dune Dogs in Glen Arbor. We will also have them at the Bridge Walk.
