We are back from our long weekend get-away...a scenic autumnal drive to Northern Michigan was a real treat! The colors were glowing the farther north we drove....Shanty Creek Resort was our destination, and it exceeded our expectations. This was a special event sponsored by Mr. Wonderful's employer - the company was celebrating 65 years in business, and handed out awards to employees who had been with the company 5, 10, 20, 25 and 30 years. The Awards Banquet was very nicely done - great food and drink. The speeches were not boring, and even I, who do not work for them, found it interesting to learn about the beginnings of their medical supply business, and enjoyed looking at the early black and white pictures on the screen display.All rooms had spectacular views, but scenes from the main lodge were the best! We drove down some 'unimproved' Michigan roads (aka "2-Tracks"). There were lots of surprises, and many small waterways.
Back to civilization, and time to go home on Sunday....we were sad to leave, but always happy to return home to our pets. And a wondrous surpirse awaited us as we walked in our door....PINK BABY HAS ARRIVED!!! Cuddled up in a warm 'throw', she has her bedtime treat and is ready for her week-long adventures in Michigan!!!
