I love the island and the town. Did you go to the fort in the town?
Yes! We did go to the fort. We had a great time there! They didn't have many people about in uniform though, since it isn't the peak time for tourists. There were a few soldiers walking about.
It sounds like you have a tradition of a nice trip on each anniversary.
We haven't always gone on a trip for our anniversary, but we have for the past three years. Some years it hasn't been in the budget, but it is nice to have a little get-away in the middle of the year!
What does the U.P. mean?
Oops...as I was typing that I was going to go back and type in "Upper Peninsula" but I forgot to! Look at a map, and you'll see that Michigan is comprised of two peninsulas...the main part which looks like a mitt and then the "U.P." =)
Deb had a great idea:
Now that you won't have a yarn store to spend your money in...here's an idea. Save up for a plane ticket, fly to Virginia, and go with me to my yarn shop. :)
I'd LOVE to come for a visit! =)
There is another yarn store for me to shop at, roughly the same distance away as the other one was. I just recently read someone's blog post about yarn shop owners typically being rude and unhelpful to their customers, and I was shocked. Judging from the comments the post received, it wasn't just her opinion either. Well, the store that closed down had AWESOME customer service! I was in there a week before they closed, and the gal who helped me was asking me about a project I had purchased back in November. I have been in one yarn store where the shop owner was rude to me. She acted as though I had just walked into her home without ringing the doorbell. LOL But otherwise, I've had positive yarn store experiences!
