Michigan & Brandywine Falls - July 2018 – Silks by Tonya

Michigan & Brandywine Falls - July 2018

July was a good month for the silk to travel. After we arrived in West Bloomfield Michigan and got set up at the 16th annual Orchard Lake Fine Art Show we had some time on our hands. So we went on an adventure. Thank goodness for google.... I was able to find a nearby lake to explore. Dodge state park is located at the northern end of Cass lake. We enjoyed some R&R and lunch at this beautiful lake. We took a walk down some incredible wooded paths along the waters edge and took a dip in the lake. Saturday & Sunday as we participated in this lovely fine art show, we were blessed with wonderful artist neighbors, great weather and met some amazing people from the area. It was an all round great show. We enjoyed being in that part of Michigan and I look forward to coming back in late August for Arts, Beats & Eats (Royal Oaks) and Early September for Art & Apples (Rochester). Hope to see you there. During this show, we met some amazing artists, Andy & Ana Butler, Boris Miller, Stephon & Yvonne Miller as well as caught up with some old friends Terry Andrews & Sidney Carter. It was really nice to get to know everyone of these great folks (See more info about these artists in the Artist Connection area below). As promised, we visited Brandywine Falls on our trip home. The morning was overcast but a beautiful morning for a walk in the woods. Sorry about the puffy eyes in the photos, it was early..lol - Brandywine Falls is located in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park Ohio. This is a nice walk through the woods, as you come upon the falls you can hear the rushing waters. I love the sound of a waterfall, it raises an anticipation in me like nothing else. As you enjoy a relaxing walk on the deck you are protected from the turain, but feel as though you are part of the landscape. It's truly a majestic short walk (with some stairs - It's a booty workout). There is no admission fee to walk to the falls. If you are in the area and have an extra 30 minutes, take the walk.
