BOA Continues…

We worked our second event in Toledo and it was a long day…5am until almost 1am but now we are on vacation for a week while we head to Newark, Delaware for our next event. Since we were so close, we decided to spend a few days in Michigan…

We had a play day at the Firekeepers Casino in Battle Creek and we had fun, played for a few hours and left with all of our money plus a little more. The rooms at the hotel were out of our price range so we opted to stay at the Quality Inn next door and if we ever decide to hang out there again, we would stay at the Casino Hotel or if we have our RV they have boondocking and a few electric sites to offer. The Quality Inn was not up to our standards, nothing really wrong, just not a place we would return but we enjoyed the casino.

Our next stop was in Port Huron, right on the channel which allows freightliners to come through all day and night and our hotel was right on the water by the Blue Water Bridge.

We thought about and really wanted to cross the border into Canada to check out the Casino but did not want to do it in the company truck, plus the traffic on the bridge was packed most times and that bridge is scary enough without being stuck on it in traffic.

Instead we took a drive around the thumb to Port Austin and then back. I got to drive which is my happy place and Jerry was the co-pilot and we just laughed and enjoyed the drive. Being in Michigan brings back so many memories, some good, some not so good but it is my home state and will always hold a dear place in my heart.

In these parts of the country it seems Macaroni and Cheese is a staple in all restaurants including Freighters Eatery & Taproom in Port Huron attached to our hotel and these dishes are not your ordinary dishes but instead they served a Scallop, Bacon Macaroni and 5 Cheese dish that was so scrumptious it was sinful. Jerry had the Reuben which was also tender and succulent and so tasty it kept you wanting more.

We also stopped at Lake Huron at Port Huron Lighthouse Park and put our feet in Lake Huron again. There are so many memories from when I was younger...I used to fish on this Channel, this is one of the places I scuba dived and use to take the boat up to Lake Huron often to fish and to dive but now it's much nicer to share it with the man that I was always meant to be with. Life certainly is the best it has been.

We will be leaving Michigan tomorrow and are planning to get closer to Delaware the next few days for our next event but not too close since NASCAR is in Dover this week and prices are soaring in the area, so since all the hurricanes are away from the shore for now, we are going to hang out on the ocean for a few days before we head into Dover next week.
