In the Beginning
Ok...so when last you left your two heroines (it's my story and I'm making us heroines), we were headed for the north. Finally I was off the highway and taking pictures of the wild dinosaurs. This is something I've always wanted to do, but with Jan, I found the courage for this safari. We had a smooth trip into Michigan and up to Holland. Holland sits pretty much on Lake Michigan and not too far from the fibre fest....our purpose.
Piper, mostly because I wouldn't shut up about eating by the water. Good food, good martini, great view and great company.
We arose for breakfast and made it to the festival just as it started on Friday morning.
Step 5 - repeat from * until all pooped out
Weather was a little warm, a little stuffy in the barns, a little bitching from me.....but then there was the fibre, and the yarn, and the baskets, and the hook kits. We were in heaven. At this point, some of the vendors were not yet there and not many animals to peruse. We decided we had to come back on Saturday to participate in the additional festivities.
Boatworks....right on the water...lake perch, sunshine, boats, another martini...a relaxing evening.
