From the Road

 Having tea with my sister and her family was a treat in
Wisconsin, especially since she lives in California.
Our schedules just meshed for a meet up and
to meet her little, cute grand-daughter.
What a fun few hours we had.
 Visiting Holland, Michigan today, it was tulip time.
The windmill is the only original windmill shipped here
and reconstructed from the Netherlands.
The tulips were about past their prime, but still
had a beauty about them.

Now we are looking forward to less time on the road
with two nights in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
What a fun adventure, but the riding and driving does
become tiring.  We will be ready to go again on Friday.
Hugs to everyone!

What wonderful adventures you're having! I love that you're sharing them with us. I'd love to see all those tulips in person! Happy trails, Marilyn! xo Gigi

So sweet you had some time with your sister! This has me a bit teary-eyed as I'm excited to see my sister in a few week, and we live far apart too--can't wait. LOVE to see all the tulips. Ours are finally in bloom. Good to catch up with you after being away for some days, Marilyn. :o) ((HUGS))

How nice to have a visit with your sister and her family - you do look alike.

The photos of Holland Michigan are lovely.

How exciting to meet your new grand-niece --- and to be able to visit with your sister on your journey.

How lovely to meet up with your sister - you look a lot alike.

Take it the tulips are grown for their bulbs there as they have not been cut - am I correct? I missed all my tulips this year as they bloomed whilst I was on the QE!!!!

Having sisters half way across the country can be hard. (That's the way it is in our family too.) So glad you got to see her and catch up with her family. The tulips fields are lovely, even if past their prime.
