Last Adventure of 2018 – All good things come to an End.

Last Adventure of 2018

     So where did I leave off? Crochet, pictures, snow and craft beer… Well I did finish the baby blankie and for the record I took over 900 pictures while in Michigan. So let me tell you about the Big crescendo of our trip, a concert! Not any concert…I’ll just cut to the chase…BOB SEGER!

     This concert took place in Grand Rapids at the Van Andel Arena, what a great time! Bob Seger totally ROCKED the house AND he is 73 frickin years old!!! Can you imagine? He played for over 2 hours with 2 Encores!

     Before we went to the concert we went to the BOB which stands for the Big Old Building, just an incredible place! Now, After the concert, we walked to (what is now our most favorite place) Founders Craft Brewery. Let me pause here and say, these are my opinions and NO ONE has asked for or paid me to say these things. Now back to the FUN…

     If you EVER get a chance to visit Grand Rapids, DO NOT pass up the opportunity you will have a fantastic time. It is a College town (which happens to be the rival of our favorite Michigan team) so there are lots of Craft Breweries, Pub grub and Restaurants to enjoy.

     So we end up at Founders after the concert. I am not a big beer fan but I do like dark beer (think Guinness) or Hard Cider especially if it has nitro. So our very nice waiter suggested (on our first trip there LOL) one called “Rubaeus” which is a raspberry ale. Side note on the Ales with and without Nitro, to me, if it has Nitro its not as heavy.

     Also, there is a place called Hop Cat and they have French fries called “Crack Fries” (that name might be changed, because SOMEONE got offended…), Dear God, do not pass these up and for heavens sake do not order anything else except a beer. Crazy Good Stuff!

     As always we had such a good time and I hope that we get to go back in the winter, I rather enjoyed the snow, even if I had to wear 8 layers!

Happy 2019!

Camera Clicks – Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Blue and Yellow

The first thing I thought of was this guy, he’s been part of our family for a very long time. He is a bit worse for the wear but Go Blue!dsc_02461304163153.jpg

While out using my big lens, lol not sure of the technical term (if there is one) for it yet, and took these; I can’t decide which I like better. Which do you like?

Camera Clicks – Flower of the Day

This is another photo challenge by Cee.

This flower vine is called Blue Pea. A very nice lady gave me some pods when she gave me some clippings of a Coral Vine.

I planted 6 seeds and 4 sprouted right away. They really are the coolest because the flower actually forms the outer pod for the seeds.
