Road Trip

So, today began with a trip to the Iron’s Area Flea Roast and Ox Market, which consisted of an “ox market” and “flea roast”, as the name would suggest. The market was not so great, nothing used like a good flea market would have, just meople trying to sell various crap that they bought as a make money form your home on eBay type thing. The flea roast was your choice of 2 hot dogs or a flea burger, with potato salad, baked beans, and a drink, for $5.79 or so. Sadly, the burger was not a burger, but a rather fatty roast beef, with a very minor amount or bbq seasoning on it. There was also a midway with elephant ears and rides and games, which we played a bit.

Feeling like we had to do more, I suggested Ludington, but Jenn wanted to go home. I said if she really wanted to, fine, so she went to Ludington to not have to hear me whine. This most likely have meant I would have to listen to her whine, but luckily we did have fun. We walked around several of the shops, saw the ferry, went to some cool stores. On the way out of town, we stopped at Amber Elk Ranch. They were grilling elk burgers, but I wasn’t allowed to have one because there were turkeys walking around and Jenn is afraid of birds, especially large 30 pound ones. So, we walked around in the gift shop where I almost bought a kahki bush hat, but decided against, a decision I slightly regret, but oh well.

Jenn has July 13 – 17 off, so we may return to Ludington to go camping, maybe not. Interlochen has also came up, as has a trip through the U.P. (do you use 2 periods if an abbreviation ends a sentence? I guess it doesn’t matter having placed a large parenthetical before the period). We will see what happens when the time comes.

Also upcoming, we plan to return to Bay City later on the 2nd, watch the fireworks, go see Transformers with the guys from the library, and return on the afternoon of the 4th.
