Heading North

This has been a very busy day. I started out with my normal standard few hours of work, and left Harry with a “honey do” (please) list at home. Be right back

The twin bridges heading out of Albany on our way north.


It was a beautiful day for traveling which was a little bit of a surprise, as the showers of the past week were forecast to continue again today.


Actually the sky got even more blue as the day went on. 151

Unfortunately, we will only be up here for one day, since we have to head back home tomorrow. However, we did not travel up here just so Harry could try a michigan hot dog. (And, although those koegel hot dogs from Michigan sound interesting, they are not what I mean when I talk about a michigan.)

The sun wasn’t cooperating for these pictures but here is Harry about to have his first michigan, (onions smothered). Basically it’s like a chili dog, but the sauce is different, finely ground with a distinctive taste.


155And the verdict was…


So, as I was saying, yummy as they are, enjoying michigans for dinner was not our primary motivation.

We were also here to spend an unfortunately too short amount of time with…

156 Mom and Pop!

After our delicious dinner, we took the scenic route back to the house.







And on the way we had another nice stop to enjoy some ice cream.





So it’s been a great day, and now it’s time to relax…good night all… Smile
