Then he cheers up a little on the Mackinac Bridge...
Things are looking better and better with this
Mackinac Island fudge situation...
But he continues to sulk in the back seat with his Canada book...
Then he realized Michigan is shaped like a mitten.
Quatchi likes mittens...
Plus, Kalamazoo sounds like fun!
That is the city slogan, after all.
Quatchi was pleased to meet my parents
Then he experienced the highlights of Kalamazoo:
Blue moon ice cream,
bluer than his earmuffs...
Lying on the grass!
Hot air balloons!
Picking beans in the garden!!
That's good haul!
Going to Lake Michigan!
Day at the beach!
Catching some rays
Q. holds down the fort while we go swimming.
Pit Stop at Clementine's!
For a Quatchi-sized tower o' onion rings
Walk it off on the pier
(It is an optical illusion)
Hiking at the Kalamazoo Nature Center!
Little Quatchi on the prairie
Big Quatchi in the beech maple forest
Backyard grilling on maple planks from Canada!!
Sadly, just when Quatchi was starting to like Michigan,
we needed to start our long journey back...
Back on the road....
Just outside Hell, you can get fresh donuts and apple cider!!
I thought you could only get it in the fall!!!
Our last stop in Michigan was the Blue Tractor in Ann Arbor
for some BBQ and brews.
Onward to Ohio!
