Nickie’s Uncle Norm and Aunt Alice from Michigan paid us a surprise visit at our cottage on Birchwood Lake while on their way home from a 10,000 mile round trip to Alaska pulling a "5th wheel".  We hadn’t seen them for several years, and we had a wonderful time catching up and looking at pictures of their incredible journey.  Nickie made a marvelous dinner that we ate out on the screened-in patio.
While sitting in the yard chatting, a Giant Swallowtail butterfly also paid us a surprise visit.  And we also enjoyed watching some beautiful hummingbird moths.  We tried to photogragh them, but were unsuccessful.
Norm and Alice looked good despite their tiring 7 week treck.  We can’t begin to tell you what a nice time we had with them.  Sure are glad they decided to include us in their agenda.
