Boy we are having so much fun, and getting a bit tired, heck I’m not sure where I am in the blog. Ok so we have been in Midland, mi 2 days, so I guess this is the time table I need to work with.
So we are staying at Springhill Suites by Marriott. a very nice hotel near the downtown area, so there are many things to do, and places to eat very close- heck lunch today came from Lucky’s Steakhouse next door, but that’s 2 days from now, so back up a bit.
We got in about 5:30 or so Friday after a nice all be it long drive, about 5 – 6 hours from St. Ignace. On our way here we stopped at Fort Michilmackinac
A wonderful place to start our day. A very nice, well done, informative Fort. The grounds are very easy to travel, and it was an awesome day weather wise. I’ll see if I can get any of the photos with my camera off it and onto the iPad.
As you can see from the few photos it’s a great place to stop, stretch your legs, take a few photos and learn something new.
From here we stopped for lunch at: https://www.darrowsrestaurant.com, my wife had a cup of corn chowder and a grilled cheese / tomato sandwich with onion rings and I had a roast beef au jus with mashed potatoes w/gravy and this to was awesome. We caught dessert to go, which was a peanut mouse pie for her and a strawberry / rhubarb pie. Great choices on both account’s.
From here it was onto Midland, MI. Nice, uneventful drive. Nice at 75 +- mph (75 mph speed limit). Clear blue skies and not many vehicles on the road. We got into the area and our hotel around 5:30 and were happy to call it a night – after we checked out the local grocery store for some lunch meats and bread.
It’s our first visit to a Meier, which turns out to be 2 brothers version of Walmart- just a bit cleaner and maybe a better selection of white goods, electronic’s, clothing food and more.
Tomorrow has a German village in our travels, see you then.
