The Packard Proving Grounds, Michigan

Let's for a minute, go back in time. .. to The Packard Proving Grounds, Historic Site, Michigan, "Packard Motor Car Company In 1899 brothers James Ward and William Doud Packard founded the Ohio Automobile Company in Warren, Ohio. In 1902 Detroiter Henry Joy and several other local investors purchased the company, moved it to Detroit, and renamed it the Packard Motor Care Company. During the 1920s and 1930s. Packard set the standard for luxury and design. Under the direction of chief engineer Jesse G. Vincent, Packard, known as "America's Master Motor Builder," also made advances in aviation technology. Vincent contributed to the development of the Liberty aircraft engine during World War 1 and predicted the growth of commercial aviation. He considered a proving ground to be essential to high quality." Such a fun day trip for us while staying at Algonac State Park, Marine City, Michigan. It was a fun free trip, lucky for us a couple and their parents were l…

Algonac State Park, Marine City, MI

Hey there folks! Let's check out: Algonac State Park, Marine City, Michigan ...if you know anything about the hubby & myself ...we love so many amazing states ...here are a few that really mean so much to us: 
1. Virginia & West Virginia,  2. Montana & Wyoming,  3. Maine & Michigan 
... those are our top 3. So every time we get to Michigan ...it is like we are home again. There is not a location in Michigan we have visited that has not made us love it even more. This state park is just so amazing. Check out how close that water traffic is to the campground. You can just watch it go by ...so cool. & Right over that water way is Canada!! SO Close, SO Cool!! We saw tugboats, huge barges, tiny boats, all sorts. I think that is a huge reason why the fiberglass rally has continued to be held there over and over! I am one who enjoys going to new rallies every time, we have yet to go to the same one over, but you know what? I think I would consider going to this rally…

You might be curious as to why we did go to so many distilleries, well I truly think you need to check this one because, WELL BECAUSE IT WAS FREE??! Yep, not sure how they do it, not sure? But when we did visit there was no charge for an amazing visit. The tour was one of the best, most detailed and the treats you get too sample are just amazing. We had to buy some of those chocolates they do sell. My hubby was like you do realize that each chocolate is worth $1.00 each? I know it, Let me tell ya, they are the best chocolates you will ever have and they taste like bourbon. So so so so so so so so so SO SO SO good!!! You maybe be asking, Beth what did you get from this distillery, well we did purchase those I got have another box of those chocolates but not sure when we will be getting to Kentucky again any time soon & a bottle of their chocolate liquor. SO SO GOOD!! Like a great dessert in a bot…

Bernheim Arboretum, Kentucky

"Bernheim Arboretum" and Research Forest  2075 Clermont Road Clermont, KY 40110
A great place to take your dog for a walk. Go on a date, take a picnic, whatever it maybe but just take time to get away and just relax. So many hiking trails, great walking locations. So many blooms plants and trees. So calming. Quiet. We were there when it was a free time. I am not sure if it is always free, but do check into that. We had a fun time just looking around. Lots of must see art as well. The bottom shots reminds me of a game I did play as kid where you had a ball or twine that you had to keep from falling with some sticks, I don't recall the name of the game but wanted to share this amazing design with you ...here is what the sign below it did say about the artist: "Photosynthesis" - by: Myung Gyun You, 2014, Born in South Korea, lives in Philadelphia, PA, 2014 Bernheim Artist in Residence, Materials: Lath, wire, lumber, and wood stain. Myung Gyun You explores the rela…
