I took my laptop with me on our trip with good intentions of blogging but then life happened. So I just focused on enjoying the experience and what an experience it was.
For starters, this was the first time I had been west through Michigan, Illinois, Iowa. So everywhere I looked were new sights to see. We even took a different route out of Canada which meant a new border crossing and a new bridge.
Picture taking from car windows is chancy,(as you can see by the big girder that got in the way) so I didn’t do a lot of it but here we are crossing from Sarnia Ontario, into Port Huron Michigan.
We stopped the first night in Kalamazoo, MI. Mostly so I could say I’d been to Kalamazoo, isn’t that a wonderful name
This looks like we’re at the airport, but actually we’re in the parking lot of a fabric store. Where Hubby found out about the Row by Row experience and the licence plates. I hadn’t mentioned it because I was ambivalent about doing a Row by Row project. But I did want a licence plate. Bummer, they were all sold out.
The clerk said they were taking addresses and would mail me one if I bought it. So I did. And when we arrived home last night, it was waiting for me. Great service, Fields Fabrics.
Hubby then became an enthusiastic plate collector and even tracked some down on his own. More late when I get pictures of the haul.
