This beautiful sunset concluded my first day at the Horse Shows by the Bay Equestrian Festival in Traverse City, Michigan, my home base for the month of July.
I often traveled to this area of Northern Michigan as a child, but I don’t remember much about it, so I’m looking forward to many new adventures in this resort town.
Tonight, after the horse show, my friends Carrie and Elise took me to one of their favorite local parks to walk our dogs on the beach and have a picnic dinner. It was nearly deserted, and Peppermint enjoyed romping with her pal Bobbin on the sand and in the water.
We stayed until sunset, watching a distant thunderstorm move over the peninsula that divides the East and West Arms of Grand Traverse Bay. The storm cleared just in time for a lovely sunset, and It was a beautiful end to a great first day.
