About 4,600 more or less miles, we are back home. What an epic journey.
The lady in the middle is Margaret, Uncle Tom's friend. She and Tom are both widows and great companions. She is a real gem and took great care of Tom while he was recovering. Myla is Warren's wife. We had a great afternoon of talking and catching up and then a terrific dinner together with Tom's daughter. We had to leave them behind and head north so that we could reach our next destination on time.
Our goal was to drive all day the next day and reach Cape Cod by dinner time. We did manage that task. We arrived in time to join the 'tribe' for dinner. Around the table are Jessica (Tina's daughter) a friend staying for the weekend, Dikki, Tina, Lara, Erik, (my empty spot) Bud, and Sara. Leo was at class and Anthony, Jessica's husband and two children were out for the evening. It was a great meal and a chance to spend time with the 'tribe."
Of course Isak loved climbing over everything and 'driving' all kinds of trucks.
Sunday afternoon we took off heading home, hoping to get a few miles down the road on the final part of our trip. Monday we spent the whole day on the road and spent the night in Port Huron, tired from all those miles we had traveled.
Tuesday morning we headed north, stopping in Burch Run to buy some new spring clothes for me.
My final stop was at Mom and Dad's graves to clear off the old wreath. I didn't have the new one to put on so will need to go back before Memorial Day and put one on.
SO, there you have it. All those miles on our trip. We had a wonderful time but decided that we won't do it again. It was just too many miles to travel and too much time on the road even though we broke it up with many stops to see family and friends.
Glad to be home and VERY glad to have spent time with so many wonderful people.
