It was Fourth of July weekend, 2012. I awoke the Saturday of to witness the tiny, quaint town of Port Sanilac, Michigan come to life! More than twice the population poured into the harbor—via boat and car while the locals, and visitors, arrived on foot—to soak in the awesome festivities. Upon the descending sun’s illustrations highlighting the sky, attendees relaxed to some cheery folk music, delectable ice cream, sticky cotton candy, and, once the evening settled to a warm black, impressive fireworks!
A close friend of the family, Susan Gill, is the mastermind behind the Music at the Harbor project, among other reputable organizations in town. Every time I visit the gorgeous little town, I sit down and chat with Mr. and Mrs. Gill, at their lovely cottage, discussing current lifestyles, to which, I’m often inspired by their recommendations. As we discussed my multimedia production experience, they brought up video and asked if I’d shoot some footage of the live concert coming up. Without a blink I politely, and willingly, sprang at the idea.
And so the video was born!
Aside from partying, frolicking, sunbathing, partying, filming, traveling, partying, and sightseeing …and partying, I snapped a bunch of photos around town. Enjoy!
On the Saturday before the concert/fireworks, my close buddy, Darren, and I drove a few miles down the road to a really cool little winery, aptly named Blue Water Winery. They make one killer Cabernet Blend. The owners bought the land off of Darren’s family after his grandpa passed away. Great use of the farmland if you ask me! 😉
