Let Our VACATION Begin…
Not as if this all doesn’t feel all like a vacation already, we get a week off in between Toledo, Ohio and heading to Newark, Delaware where we plan to do much more sight-seeing.
For now, let us share with you the past week…
We were hoping to spend some down time on Lake Erie and the plan was to first visit, Huron, Ohio. A very small town located on the channel where ships go in and out of but that did not happen. We made our reservation to hang out at the Comfort Inn River’s Edge for two nights but when we arrived on Monday afternoon we seen that the place was locked up tight. They are closed for the season during the week but our reservation went through…since we were only 25 miles from our next location right on Lake Erie we were able to change up our reservation to Monday and Tuesday instead of Wednesday and Thursday, thank goodness. The strange thing is that when I attempted to cancel the original one where they were closed we were within the 24 cancellation policy and they were charging us…so I got all the information and sent it to our main office and letting them handle it. How crazy is that?
Instead we stayed at the Quality Inn in Port Clinton right on Lake Erie for two nights and had some great needed R&R. The water is our sanctuary and puts us into our happy places so it was great.
They even gave us a room with a Jacuzzi, but it had a strange setup…no privacy and even after over 20 years of marriage, there are a few things we just do not do in front of one another so it was a bit uncomfortable.
The early morning as we were leaving Port Clinton, as I went to check the trailer lights lo and behold they were not working so we tried troubleshooting them ourselves checking connections, fuses and wires but found nothing so we checked around and there are only a few shops in this area and the first few we called were not taking any more business until early next week…ugh! We did not want to drive without our trailer lights since first it was raining and then to complicate the matter our trailer plates are expired, they are current but the tag was not put on the plate and we are waiting for it to be shipped to us by the main office. We finally found a place that would take us now but it definitely cost us but they were able to find the issue in just over an hour and we were once again on our way.
We stopped at the Hollywood Casino in Toledo and hit all sorts of jackpots, one major one so we are doing well.
Life is grand and things are falling into place for us and all we hope is it continues so we can make our next phase in our lives a smooth one, whatever that next transition turns out to be...we still have no clue.
We had a GREAT event in Toledo, not only surpassing our goal but by bunches…KACHING!
Left Toledo and made it to Geneva on the Lake in Ohio for a few days of rest and adventures. We had such a marvelous time, hanging out on our patio meditating on Lake Erie, taking a Wine Tour and had a blast, we will write a separate blog on the wineries and our stay at the Lodge.
Things were going so well and we were really enjoying ourselves, all awhile we were keeping an eye on Matthew who if predictions were correct was going to be in our path for our upcoming adventures. Unfortunately, we listened to the initial predictions and began to change and even cancel some of our plans and that is when all hell began breaking loose for us. It always seems to happen to us that when we make decisions out of fear the Universe kicks us around, so it’s time to get back into the flow of our lives and get back on the happy train!
