It was a relaxing day in Michigan

It wasn't a picture perfect weather day.  It was a little cloudy but it was a picture perfect day for Marianne my wife and I.  We are waiting for results from a bone scan she had done the other day.  So I set up what she needed the most.  She needed a little comfort from Ryan our son.

Michigan fall colors

The fall colors were beautiful.  We got off the main highway and took some back roads for an hour.

I called him (he lives in Chicago) but he was busy.  I was going to drop in with Marianne but he had a Halloween party planned with friends.  But he was great and said he would meet us on the west coast of Michigan to go to an apple orchard on Sunday.  So Marianne and I drove about 2 1/2 hours and he and Katie drove a couple of hours to meet over on the west side of the state.

So we hung out at Jollay Orchards in Coloma.  We took a hay ride, had a carmel apple, drank some cider, and swatted away all the bees that were after the sweet stuff.

 We fed the animals and then we had a meal at the Friendly Tavern in downtown Coloma.   If you are in the area I would recommend both places.  We had some great service and good food at Friendly Tavern.  206 N Paw Paw St, Coloma, MI 49038-9589

It was a great day.  Ryan lifted Marianne's spirits.   I hope you all had a good weekend too.

Thanks for sharing! Those colors do not look real!  That is one thing I do miss about being in southwest Florida is the fall colors. We have pretty trees in Naples, but nothing like those pretty Maples.  Nice.  :-)

Russ - What a beautiful family you have!  My prayers are with you and your wife for good news and positive results of the bone scan.  Sounds like you had the perfect remedy for her blues.  :)

Beautiful pictures.  I love nature, and all the colors the season change presents.
