Relaxation and research

We returned this week from our trip to Lakes Superior, Huron and Michigan, where I engaged in a very small amount of research. Mostly Judy and  me, my sister Karen Moucha, and our dog Lila had a wonderful time exploring and sightseeing, even if it was a bit warmer than we had hoped. Now it’s back to work on my next column for The Daily Sentinel.

Below are a few photos from the trip.

Sister Karen, me, Judy and Lila’s back at a cannon overlooking Lake Michigan on Mackinac Island.


carriage

Only horses and bicycles allowed on Mackinac Island, so we all got a ride in carriage, Lila included.


mackinac house

Saw a few nice houses for sale, like this one for about $3 mill


locks

And we watched ships like this 1,000-foot ore freighter go through the locks at Sault Ste. Marie.
