Days 70, Sunday, September 23, 2018
Sunday morning my parents and I had breakfast with my Aunt Elaine, Uncle Richard and cousin Stephanie, and then we were off to the other side of the state to visit my mom’s side of the family. Mom’s family is much smaller, but I have an aunt, uncle and cousin (and a few other relatives outside of Michigan) who live in Galesburg, Michigan, a small town outside of Kalamazoo.
We headed over to the other side of the state, but driving separately since my parents had their own rental car. I stopped in Marshall, Michigan and did a little wandering and shopping. Marshall is a cute little town with a historic downtown area with shops and antique stores (which unfortunately are mostly closed on Sundays), and several nicely painted murals on the buildings.
And then my cousin Megan met me at Dark Horse Brewing Company. If you feel like you have heard of it, you probably have. They had a reality show there several years ago, but I’ve never actually seen the show. Megan and I got a beer and a pretzel with beer cheese, and I got a t-shirt!
That evening was pretty quiet, just enjoying a dinner of pork tenderloin tacos with the family, and catching up.
Not every day on the road can be thrilling I guess!
