Special thanks to Abby Marie for sharing her history of living in Michigan and plans for the future. Enjoy her article, originally posted on her blog, here on Pure Michigan Connect!
How ironic, the first snowfall was December 1st, perfect timing! Lately, I’ve realized how much I love the state of Michigan (and everything that goes with it, YES, I said everything)…Definitely not something I thought I’d ever hear myself mutter.
With autumn storms starting to form in the Canadian prairies, ducks will be on the move, and so will waterfowlers in Michigan. Saginaw Bay, Lake St. Clair, Drummond Island, the Les Cheneaux’s– all these will bring the ducks in, and the duck hunters will smile through frozen moustaches and frozen cheeks.

Oh, how I wish I was in Michigan!
Of all 50 states, there’s no doubt in my mind that if you really want to experience the four seasons throughout the year, Michigan is the place to be. True Michiganders may joke that there are seasons like construction, but winter, spring, summer and fall all have a place in the soul of the Great Lake State.

Go For The Bronze! As the leaves change smallmouth bass start to get seriously aggressive in Michigan.
Let’s be quite frank– smallies make largemouths look like overweight chumps. Think sculpted middleweights versus blubbery heavyweights. Rivers only seem to enhance this difference. Think rivers like the Menominee, Au Sable, Grand and Kalamazoo. And don’t forget about the in-flows and out-flows on lakes like St. Clair or the impoundments on rivers like the Muskegon.
Special thanks to Guest blogger Courtney Decker Bradford for detailing her optimism for the upcoming seasons, and a personal reflection of another beautiful Michigan summer!
Sunset in Ludington
As I sit on the beach as dusk falls, I am in awe of the vibrance of one of God’s brilliant creations – the sunset. The boats drifting in with the backdrop of sun and seagulls leads to reflection. Not the sun’s reflection on the water but my reflection – I reflect over the past months as summer reaches its end in this great State. I remember my family’s dinner at “The Hamlin” restaurant in Ludington and our trip to “31 Flavors” where large amounts of ice cream were consumed without guilt. I smile as I reminisce over the long walk through the woods to a more private beach area in Saugatuck.
