We have reached Richmond, Kentucky and checked into the Holiday Inn Express, our favorite pet friendly hotel. It has been a long, long day – taking 11 hours to drive through Michigan, Ohio and 87 miles of Kentucky.
I was doing pretty good this morning in the crying department. We were up at 5:30 and so busy I made myself not think about anything except what I might be leaving behind. We caught the taxi (sweet Anna driving) and made it to the Shepler’s dock in plenty of time to catch the 8:00 boat.
But then as we walked down the pier to the boat, who should appear OFF the boat but Sue Conlon and her son Patrick (who works at the Grand Hotel). Patrick was going to work, but Sue had driven from Harbor Springs this morning just to see us off. Yep. I pretty much lost it.
We’re going out to walk Bear and Maddie one more time, then fall into bed. We’ll have about an 8-hour drive tomorrow – a real cake walk compared to today!
We’ve felt all of your safe travel prayers today as we’ve traveled through so many rainstorms. Thank you for each and every one.
I’ll pop in tomorrow evening sometime to let you all know we’re home safely. Safe travel prayers will be appreciated again.
Love and hugs to you all!
