The first four days of our trip were spent in Kalamazoo (yes, there really IS a Kalamazoo). Tim and I attended Western Michigan University there in 1976-77. The Eastern division of American Association of Petroleum Geologists had it's anual meeting so we got to reunite with friends while there.
|Lake Superior at Marquette.|
|Here I am on the shores of Lake Michigan in Holland.|
|Arch Rock on Mackinac Island on Lake Huron.|
And...we got to see some of the most beautiful trees I've seen in a long time. The pictures do not do them justice.
|The Dapple Grey Bed and Breakfast at Eagle Harbor, Michigan on the Keweenaw Peninsula.|
No "Still Life" here.
Lucky for me, there were 3 geologists who knew what they were looking for.
That's Mike on the left, Tim in the middle and the man who owns the mine on the right. I forget his name. But he was very nice. Later we went to his rock shop and I bought some Caledonia mine t-shirts and some...rocks.
|We came back in time to take in the Tulsa State Fair where I had entered 3 of my quilts. The bright one on the right is mine. And it has a blue ribbon!|
|This one didn't get a ribbon.|
|This one got a red ribbon.|
|Our daughter Calista brought home a few ribbons, too.|
The pink socks are hers.
There was no "still life" while we were gone. The grandkids continued to grow and change.
Gabe got contact lenses while we were away. Here he is playing the Amish made marble game I brought home.
And of course, Wesley got bigger. And cuter.
I plan to add some more vacation pictures soon. Until then...
