My daughter and I took our first ever weekend away trip. We drove to Frankenmuth Michigan. http://www.frankenmuth.org
The only thing I was nervous about was the drive. It’s only two and a half hours but I tend to get car sick when I am the driver. Since it was my car, I was the driver. It just occurred to me at 4:00 am this morning that I was driving a car that was two weeks old out of town! You would think with the run of smackdowns we’ve gotten with new cars on road trips I wouldn’t have! So far, no semi trucks, nor little old ladies have hit us. It worked out pretty well, we stopped once at a Biggbys for coffee at about the hour mark. I did have a headache by the time we got here but it was just annoying. Oh, and for some reason when I drive more than 30 minutes or so the herniated disk in my neck swells up. I don’t really get that.
Our first stop for Coffee.
Once we got to Frankenmuth we were too early to check in and too out of our element to walk around so we stopped at Tim Hortons a block from our hotel.
And then hopped on their wifi and looked at all the various and assorted things around us. It was too freakin’ cold to walk around outside. Though we did venture out for about ten minutes around 5:00 pm. It was 18 degrees.
Beautiful clock in the hotel. We are staying at the Drury Inn and Suites. Nice hotel. Everything is a little older and a little frayed, but it’s all wonderfully clean. Two room suite setup. Breakfast & dinner every night included.
Of course the dinner is the cheapest easiest food they can put out that massive amounts of people will eat. No nutritional value at all. We were both pretty tossy & turny all night.
There is also a bar and they give you three free drinks, per person, per night.
Our room is on the third floor.

And sunset. I wish I had thought to look ten minute earlier!
