And then we were off, heading to Holland, Michigan, for the next part of our trip. We drove through some very beautiful, green Wisconsin farmlands.
Then we stopped by Lake Michigan.
Eventually we were back on the road but before we could reach Michigan, we had to drive through Chicago. Oh my goodness - what a nightmare! Bumper-to-bumper traffic moving so slowly, trying to move into the lanes we needed to be in to make the exits we needed, trying not to swear but not being totally successful at the non-swearing - ugh! Sandy hopes she never has to drive in Chicago again, and Edie hopes to never experience such a white-knuckle commute again. But even though Edie was sweating bullets, she managed to take a picture of a part of the Chicago skyline.
We finally made it to more open freeway and arrived safely in Holland, Michigan. We were excited to go sight seeing (aka shopping and spending) today. The area where we shopped was very quaint with old looking shops. We enjoyed exploring many of them...and maybe buying a few items.
Y'all come back now.
