Cloudy, cool, and wet!!! That pretty much sums up May in Michigan this year, and until just this week, it looked like June was going to continue the trend. The lake level at the cottage has risen so much in the past few weeks that part of our dock is now under water, and as far as the temperature goes, May seemed to think it was April, and June was following the trend. At a time when I should have been breaking out the shorts and sandals, I was still turning on the heat in the cottage and wearing my flannel jammies to bed. Don't get me wrong. I love being at the cottage no matter what the weather, but with a steady string of bleak days, my mood was in danger of turning bleak as well. I needed a pick-me-up, and I had the ideal thing in mind. About six months ago, I learned about a great library in northern Michigan and had promised myself that I'd visit it once the cottage season began. Early June turned out to be the perfect time for a trip to the Elk Rapids District Library.
