We hit 75 degrees here today. By Friday our high is supposed to be 48. So today was a great day to hit the road with the sketch book. My wife and I drove south of Battle Creek to Scotts, Michigan.
Scotts was founded in the 1800s and, in its day, was a pretty large town with a grain mill, railroad traffic, farm commerce, a pickle factory, and large population. The town burned and was re-built a couple of times. Today little remains except for the town's center....four corners, and a few homes. We had a great lunch at the Scotts Corner Cafe, that's it with the flag in front, right across the street from Scooter's Malt shop. The weather was perfect for a malt today...unfortunately Scooters is closed for the season.
