Suddenly it was mid September. As with most summers, the weeks had flown by faster than the Road Runner escaping the clutches of the Coyote. Beep beep! It's gone. Before I even had a chance to take a road trip, it was over. But wait. This year summer decided to hang on for a few extra weeks. What luck.
Since I'm retired, my summer is dictated by the weather, not the calendar. So when September 19 arrived with the promise of sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 70's, I decided it was the perfect opportunity for a road trip after all. For quite some time friends had been telling me about scenic Michigan Highway 119, otherwise known as the Tunnel of Trees, and this was the perfect day to do it. And on my way, I decided that this would also be a great time to stop in Harbor Springs and revisit a lovely little bookstore, Between the Covers.
