Touring Michigan, Part Two

Mackinac Bridge Viewed From Fort Mackinac
Before leaving Sault Ste. Marie, we toured the Museum Ship Valley Camp. The Museum Ship Valley Camp was built in 1917 and retired in 1966. After 1966, the 550 foot long freighter was permanently docked on historic Water Street and transformed into a museum. The Valley Camp offers more than just a tour of her deck. Visitors can explore the wheelhouse, sleeping quarters, and her cargo hold which now...

Thanksgiving with Friends

Cocoa Beach, Florida
 Time is passing by fairly quick, although we haven't been doing much other than relaxing. Isn't that what "not traveling" and enjoying a winter break is supposed to be about? Our traveling friends, Bob and Joyce Childre, have a "sticks and bricks" home about 90 minutes from here. We met these friends in the Arizona desert about 12 years ago. Since then, we meet up about every 2- 3 years and ...

We still had a reservation at the US Coast Guard station campground at ...

Motorcycle Dog
Cooking with Connie  I'll start off my post by wishing our eldest granddaughter Kaylee, a very Happy 14th Birthday -  We love you!  This was as far as I got the day I started this post two days ago, but it's an important message and I wanted to share it instead of starting over.

2020 Is Off and Running!

Yep, we're in Florida!
Connie and I are still enjoying a relaxing time at Patrick AFB, near Cocoa Beach in Florida. While the weather has been mainly in the mid-70's, it still feels humid to us. We may be wimps, as we run the air-conditioning most of the time. Not for the heat, but to ward of the humidity. The windows being closed most of the time also wards of the many flying, evil, biting insects. We don't have many m...
