The closing banquet was held at the the Bay Harbor Yacht Club, a beautiful setting on a beautiful night in northern Michigan:
Grace Cottage on Walloon Lake across from Windemere:
–A 90-something gentleman lives in the downstairs of the cottage in the summer. He was happy to have visitors.
–upstairs is in pretty good condition, but would need some work
–another room upstairs
–looking down at the very steep stairs. Watch out, I bumped my head!
–a photo of Grace Hall Hemingway at Grace Cottage
–the nice covered patio looking toward the lake. The trees are so thick you can barely see the lake. There was a nice path down to the dock. Beautiful trees now, but there were none in Grace’s time.
–the deck and patio
–the view in the other direction, very green
–scholar, professor, and author, Carl Eby, also the treasurer of the
Hemingway Foundation and Society
Some of the handouts, souvenirs, and conference materials I brought back:
Next and last post: day trip to the Upper Peninsula!
