In Kalamazoo zoo zoo this morning with plans to see the Pekarovic’s goat ranch before jetting back to Saugatuck with Susan. 7:30 am departure turned into 9:30 am because I stayed up editing the Great Lakes Aquatics segment instead of packing. Got an interesting opening I think.
After hugging my new eastern european brothers goodbye, we made it to Wick’s Park gazebo 15 minutes early. Picked up contact info for the Schumann’ enroute, they had offered to shelter Hello World for the duration of our Saug stay.
Interviewed Catherine Bragdon until 1:00 pm and then Susan and I shared a greasy lunch at the Elbo Room.
Back to Oval Park and Saugatuck Dunes Natural Area. Hello World was off her Baolongs but otherwise perfect. Susan crashed on the trampoline as I brought the gear over from the parking lot in 3 trips. Susan split and the boat and me made the move to the Schumanns beach, about 1 mile south. They are generous folks with a lovely home (including wireless) and have offered to put me up too!
Into town for hot beverages at Uncommon Grounds. A quick conversation with Gretchen about the doings back in the hood. Returning to my suite at the Schumann’s for some editing and more lightning posts. Coincidence – our latest benefactors live on Lakeshore Drive which turns into Campbell Rd, as in Mike an Shala Campbell.
