Maumee bay and Toledo

And good morning! Now that I'm all rested from out trip, here's the pics. First up, me and our campsite all decked out for the 4th.

Craig relaxing.

An Elvis statue for sale at the Erie Street Market I mentioned in yesterday's post.

Here's Dean blowing out the candles on his birthday cake, and no he's not 5. I couldn't fit all the candles needed, so I put one for each decade. And although he's was to be only 49, that's closer to fifty, so 5 candles.
Now this was a time lapsed pic and it's blurry because I didn't have a camera stand, but I wanted to show how the red, white, and blue rope light lit up the flags at night. Pretty nifty, huh?
Here we are at the river across from down town.
On Sunday, Dean fixed a delicious breakfast, and later we went down to the beach to soak up the wonderful weather, and of course, people watch. That afternoon, we went to the famous
Tony Packo's for dinner. Here's Craig pointing out Jamie Fox's bun. The walls are covered with autographed hot dog buns. It was interesting to see all the people who've eaten here.

And here we are ready to dive into dinner. It was great!

And then it was back to the campground.

Then yesterday morning, we packed up to come back to Lansing, while Tom and Dean left for Holly, MI to visit family. And of course, no trip would be complete with out a near disaster! But I'll post that and pics tomorrow.


  1. A disaster? Oh My!--Randy
