Can you believe this picture is from Michigan in the middle of the winter!?! The snow is starting to melt away, although the forecast shows a few more winter wonder days right around the corner! However with the melting snow, it allows me to switch gears from the cold weathered photos Ive posted the last few days, and add some warmth to the blog with this vibrant summer-ish photo taken again with my iPhone today at a little breakfast restaurant called “The Omelet Shop”. My girlfriend and I were searching around for an open bank not realizing with MLK day, all the banks were closed. So pulling out of the deserted Chase parking lot, bummed that our mission of check cashing was foiled and would have to be postponed til tomorrow, we decided to cheer ourselves up at this restaurant across the street. I had never eaten here, but the exterior was so enticing, and as they say you should always judge an omelet shop by its cover.

This photo brings me back to my recent days of living on the beach in Virginia! In fact my neighbors building was painted almost an identical color scheme, with the addition of some orange and green. I can imagine walking by the blue window sills of the building with sandals and a loose fit tee that I threw on just after an intense game of ultimate frisbee on the beach. There was a 7-11 across the street that we frequented often, and if it weren’t for the no shirt no shoes no service sign, we would have spent all summer in our swim trunks and shorts. I would say Im still a beach boy, just in a Michigander disguise, which works well with the counter part of a Michigan omelet shop in a beach shack disguise.
