One last photo of a yet to be renovated building at The Village of Traverse Commons. Several of the "out buildings" have been renovated and now house a cheesecake factory, a wood fired bakery, Left Foot Charley Wines, and a coffee roaster/shop.
This is the front building of the cheesecake shop. Another renovated building behind it is the main production facility. Julie's comment about the cheesecake was (I hope that I have this correct), it is "slap your Momma good!" This is an expression I had not heard before, but at the time it was said, it fit and made sense. :)
Each Friday afternoon, a farmers market is held on the grounds, too. It was small, but held a good number of vendors. We bought Becky a bottle of "Cherry Vinegar", from a vendor who had many flavored vinegars. For those of you not familiar with Traverse City, the area is known for their tart cherries.
Another vendor who had a small, but colorful display.
Don and I also drove up into the hills that climbed west of the downtown area. These next 2 photos show West Bay and a little of downtown Traverse City. As "Molly Bee" would say...."biggify" the photos to get a better concept of what we saw. :)
Tomorrow......our last night of vacation, with dinner at Sean and Becky's.
