The Sun Also Rises, but not tonight!


Here in Petoskey, the sun sets right over Little Traverse Bay and because of that, this area is known as "The Land of the Million Dollar Sunsets". I think this one comes close! It was a beautiful night and a great sunset. I had just gone on the Downtown Petoskey Gallery Walk featuring 13 galleries downtown and we were all gathered in the courtyard at the Perry Hotel (shown in an earlier post) as the sun went down. Of course, the farther the sun set, the cooler it got, but thankfully, I had a sweater on! The Gallery Walk was very nice and I had a great time visiting some of the galleries that I don't usually venture into. The galleries all donate a prize as well, so after the walk, everyone meets and listens for their ticket number so they can take an amazing piece of artwork home. Unfortunately, I didn't win anything this year, but there is always next year!
