Michigan 2014
We had a great trip to Michigan earlier this fall.  There were lots of wineries, lake views and local landmarks to enjoy.

We drove along the coast of Lake Michigan from the southwest side of the state to Escanaba on the west side of the Lake, then south through Wisconsin. 
What a great trip!  Read more about it here...

Ste. Genevieve Garden Walk
Last weekend, several of my Master Gardener friends joined me for a garden tour in the lovely town of Ste. Genevieve, Missouri.  This tour featured a wide variety of gardens - large and small, formal and casual, sunny and shady.  We enjoyed about a dozen different gardens on a beautiful sunny and mild day along the Mississippi River.

Our Fall Vacation 2013  (The Hudson Valley)

We had a great time vacationing during the fall this year!  As a teacher, I was never able to do this, so when Wonderful Hubby asked what the vacation destination was going to be this year, I told him I'd love to go to New England in the Fall.  We have cousins who live in Hyde Park, NY so they would be our first destination!

We made it to Indianapolis the first night .... just in time to dine at our favorite Indy restaurant, The Rathskeller.  It has Bavarian cuisine that is fabulous!  Jerry enjoyed the J√§egerschnitzel (which really was as delicious as it was in Zell, Germany!!)

More Vacation Pictures from the Northeast
After we left our cousins' home in the Hudson Valley of New York, we drove to Long Island and spent the day driving through the wine country along the north east part of the island.  There is a lot to do and see on Long Island and we will have to go back to spend several days there.  We took the ferry at Orient Point to New London, Connecticut that evening.  
 
Clyde's Cider Mill
 
The next day, while driving, we came across Clyde's Cider Mill in Old Mystic, Connecticut.  It was one of those places we JUST had to stop and visit!!  What a treasure!
