School has been using up alot of my time, particularly our Amerikam project, so the blog wound up suffering. Sorry.
To catch up, rather than all in one post, I am splitting it into two parts, each covering about a week, then a semi-current post.
So, where did I leave off…
Thursday, the 17th, I went with Dane and Greg to try disc golf. My brother tried to get me to go for 2 years but it was a semi-far drive to get there. Here, its about 2 minutes away, so I gave it a try. It turns out, I like it.
Friday, following class, Jenn and I went to Kalamazoo. We started off in GR at Cascade Winery to get a bottle of mead, and Jenn picked an apple wine. We then continued down to kazoo and to our hotel. We had dinner at Logan’s and stopped by the local bike shop as her parents have been looking at getting new bicycles. Back at the hotel we tried her apple wine that was pretty good, then my mead that was rather disappointing. It starts off like honey and water, but finishes very dry.
Overall, Kalamazoo seemed cool, with bike lanes EVERYWHERE and the Kal-Haven trail. On the other hand, the shopping was spread out sort of weird, and it looked a lot like Saginaw, just sort of run down in a lot of the neighborhoods we saw.
Saturday we headed north toward home, stopping again in GR. We had lunch downtown at Flannigan’s, then walked to DeVos Center for the Patio and Spa show that was decent, but not worth the money. Flannigan’s was really good though, and I may agree with their claim of best rueben in GR. They also have all 3 Guinness products on tap, so I tried a Harp and was very happy with it.
Following that, we went to the Dunhams on Plainfield to buy disks for Jenn and I, as I had borrowed Greg’s earlier, then headed home.
The following week was a lot of working on our project. I did surprise myself though, by playing disc gold every day that week, Monday through Friday.
Also that Friday was our banquet at the Holiday Inn. Several scholarships and the senior mock-award were presented, and dinner obviously. Food was unimpressive sadly, considering the $20 each price (though the school covered half, and we only had to par $10).
I think I will leave it there for now. The 28th – 2nd in the next post.
