A Non-Quilting Day

I didn’t do anything quilt-related yesterday.   Well, that’s not entirely true.  The Woodworker and I spent the day on the motorcycle.  We live in Flushing, Michigan, and hubby wanted to visit a wind farm up in the thumb of Michigan.  That meant we went by Caro, home of Merrie Miller and her new shop, Catty Wampus.   So we stopped by for a few minutes as we went through town.  SO nice to meet her! She also is a biker, so we’re hoping to get together soon to take a ride.

This shows (kind of) where we went up into the thumb.  Marker B is Flushing, A is Caro, C is Caseville, Michigan.  We went over 240 miles yesterday, and today my body is reminding me of that.  Muscles I didn’t know I had are a little tender, but not too bad.  We went to the beach in Caseville for a brief break and to stretch our legs.

Caseville is on Saginaw Bay in Lake Huron.Windfarmtrip 002

See the turbine off in the distance behind me?  There are dozens of those all over the area in Pigeon, Michigan that generate electricity.  It’s so cool to see them all spinning!

On the way back we stopped for dinner in Birch Run… then headed home.  What a great day!
