August 29,Saturday, We wake up to a wet,raining day that will be with us all day. We drive over to Mackinaw City. The ride over the bridge was scary with the wind blowin' warnings were flashing for motorists to drive 20 mph. The bridge has a open steel grate in the passing lane all the way over the bridge, the outside lane was blacktop. On windy days the wind comes up thru the steel grate and I did feel the push!! We get to the otherside to Mackinaw City and drive downtown. There is a Corvette Car Show this weekend..expecting 700 or more. However I only saw about 50 arrive in town. The rain has kept many away, the rain was all weekend and did reduce the attendance. There was to be parade too but was cancelled. We drove over to the Light House and walked around the grounds and waterfront..yes we got wet. We then drove around to keep warm and dry. We then stopped at a local resturant "Darrows" there was a waiting line. After eating here I can see why!!! I had White Fish Basket, it came with 8 BIG Strips of fish and Real Mashed Potatoes & Salad, Carol had Roast Beef Dinner and needed a take-out box to eat the rest later. Yum..Yum!!
God Bless..AirstreamHobo & Carol
