Up on the beautiful Keweenaw Peninsula – so far north – it’s north of Wisconsin. Some evenings, I’ve stood on the beach for hours, taking one picture after another – it’s all beautiful on the “shores of “Gitche Gumee” (the Native American words for Lake Superior.
This picture was taken at Old Sturbridge Village. We’ve been to lots of “old villages,” but so enjoyed Old Sturbridge. I don’t know if they do this every night or if we happened on a “special event” evening, but one thing we did was go to a dinner that was prepared solely over the hearth. You had to sign up for it and it took a lot longer than a regular meal, but was a lot of fun.
We visited the Portland Light on a cold, cloudy day. One of the most photographed lighthouse, the site is beautiful. We climbed over rocks, enjoyed the frigid ocean spray and took in as much as we could before the cold won.
Yep! Been to Louisiana. Actually have a picture of Louisiana – however, our kids were in middle school and I don’t think they’d like that picture anywhere near social media. But we WERE there.
So moving on to Maine.
We were at the Portland Light on a cloudy day, the kind of days for which lighthouses were made in the first place.
Road trips take you to a destination, state by state, giving you the opportunity to discover new sites – unlike flights with shades closed on the plane window and a whole world hidden below the clouds.
Here the colorful bridge that took us from Kentucky to Ohio or maybe it was Ohio to Kentucky.
Not sure, but the ride was colorful.
Ok, this was taken a long time ago, but it’s the best I could do.
A fun day with the kids and the parents and the other side of the family kids and parents at Connor Prairie near Indianapolis. Lots of interactive activities for kids to learn about life “long ago.”
Here they all dash off to the covered bridge.
So many pictures of Illinois. So I’ll chose one that isn’t Lake Michigan or the Willis Tower or cornfields … one that we aren’t used to seeing in the Midwest.
Some buffalo at the Buffalo Bill homestead.
