At 8:15 we hopped into the car.
Two hours and fifteen minutes later, we were in Traverse City.
We started out antique shopping at Wilson's, then walked around downtown.
It was warm and 84 when we arrived.
We had the frozen ones!
Very good, and the perfect treat after a warm morning of shopping!
THGGM checked out the deck, but it was chilly so we stayed inside.
Notice that we shared!
Seriously, I intended to have a mere two bites.
Good thing they gave us two spoons instead of two forks, or someone might have been stabbed.
Outside of The Cove there was a BLOOMING lilac bush.
It is FIFTY NINE degrees!
This was the part of our trip I was MOST looking forward to.
But, with the incessant rain and the much cooler temperature, we drove right on through.
Not that it isn't a great visitor center.
But I was disappointed, to say the least.
Still cold and rainy at Arcadia Bluffs.
Did we get out and enjoy the foggy, rainy view?
We did not.
I did see a couple with an umbrella walk out on the observation deck, although I can't imagine they could have possibly seen anything but fog and rain.
And then we drove home.
In the rain.
We stopped for coffee in Manistee, where it was sixty and rainy.
We even got to hear his team sing Happy Birthday to him as he passed out cupcakes and Gatorade to them.
Oh, and did you notice the temperature at Kado's game?
And it was SUNNY!
