On the Move in the UP (Sault Ste. Marie, MI)


We are now in officially in the UP (Upper Peninsula of Michigan). We are inspecting the Soo Locks.  Just want to make sure the Army Corp of Engineers are doing a good job.

Below are the places we have been since the last blog.   They may not be in the right order, because I can’t remember all of the dates.  They all seem to run together after a while.


Detroit has it’s problems but there are still quite a few things that are good.  Not the roads, they are the worst I have seen.  Museums, some parks and quite a few great rrestaurants.  We had a great visit with my cousin Robert and his friend Naomi.

The Henry Ford Museum

Beverly and Francie, I know it is the wrong color and it may be off by a year, but I couldn’t resist taking a picture of this 1949 blue Kaiser sedan.  Our car was also a 4 door sedan, either 1949 or 1950.  Think Pink!!!!!!!!!!!
