Frankfort, Michigan annual vacation for Bender - Otter family and friends during August 22nd - 29th of 2015. This year in Frankfort was one of the coolest temperature wise. Temperatures averaged in the low to mid 60s Fahrenheit. It was often cloudy and overcast. But the rain was minimal.
The usual events took place this year: Dunes, Frankfort Beach, Wine Tasting tour, Traverse City, Canoeing on the Platte, Boones restaurant. Pat won the Dunes climb this year. Pat and Doug Golfed at Arcadia Bluffs for the first time. Also for the first time joining us on the vacation was Derek Bender. Welcome Derek!
2015 was also one of the tougher years for Salmon fishing on Lake Michigan.
Glen Arbor was hit with a tornado earlier in the summer and we observed many trees down and work crews still clearing the tornado's aftermath.
