We had a 4 day visit with Art and Connie in Maumee. I spent 2 summers in Maumee when I was 14 and 15 years old. It was fun to go back and walk the area I was familiar with. Maumee is really a lovely town with some very old homes and a nice downtown preserving a lot of the old buildings. I walked each morning with Connie and 2 of her friends. They gave me a history tour of the old homes in area.

Art, Dale and I spent a day walking the Highland Meadows Golf Club following the 3 leaders in the final day of the LPGA Marathon Classic Golf Tournament. What fun seeing these very talented ladies up close and personal. It made Dale and I realize what really amateur golfers we are! The winner, Chella Choi, was just amazing to watch.

We toured the National Great Lakes Museum in Toledo. It gives a wonderful history of all the ships and freighters that have been an important part of our economy. It also chronicles the loss of over 8,000 ships on the lakes. The Great Lakes can be very dangerous in storms.

We are leaving tomorrow for Minnesota and will drive through Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin.
