Rooster woke up, looked around the house, and said, “I don’t feel like doing this right now. Why don’t we go on an adventure? We have a little extra money right now. We need to get out of here.” I couldn’t agree with him more. So, we packed our bags, climbed in our Chevy Spark, and headed north. We decided our destination would be a tiny Bavarian village called Frankenmuth. Since we got a late start, we spent an evening in Ann Arbor.
We’ve never been to Ann Arbor. We thought it would be interesting because it is the home of the University of Michigan. Rooster and I checked into the Ann Harbor Regent Hotel and Suites. A frog playinga fiddle greeted us in the lobby.
We also had a great view of the garden from our room.
Observation from an evening in Ann Arbor
Ann Arbor appears to be a prosperous collage city. The campus of Michigan State is enormous. There were a lot of people partying downtown even in the middle of the week. Michigan seems to be serious about their flowers, sculptures, and fountains. We saw a wide assortment of these features everywhere, but we didn’t spend much time in Ann Arbor. We mostly ate dinner and slept. That means we will have to make a return trip when we have time to explore.
