Western Michigan Trip

We enjoyed having Jenny home for a week. During part of her visit, we took a mini vacation to the west part of the state. We did some wine tasting in the Paw Paw area. This a photo of Tom and Jenny in front of some grape vines.

In wine country, we also stopped a couple of chocolate shops. We tried the chocolate covered bacon...interesting flavor.

We stopped for an ice cream cone in South Haven. The life size blue cow on the roof caught my interest.

The weather was overcast but it didn't stop anyone from enjoying the Lake Michigan shore.

Since we were visiting quilt shops, Jenny found an interesting stop for Tom. We went to the Gilmore Car Museum, north of Kalamazoo. The antique cars are stored in restored historic barns. I had Jenny take my picture in front of an old potato truck. I grew up in potato country and worked on potato farms a couple of summers while in school.
