Road Trip – Kentucky to Toledo, Ohio

After sleeping in, I cruized through Ohio and got to Mom & Charlie’s place in Point Place, a small penisula that’s a suburb of Toledo. The top tip of the peninsula is in Michigan, which doesn’t make much sense to me. They live one house away from the Ottowa River in a beautiful old neighborhood.

Note: the roads in Ohio are full of potholes, there are lots of construction zones on I-75, all the rest areas are closed, and traffic is heavy. No wonder I stayed off the freeways for 1700 miles!

Ben & Jason came over for dinner. I haven’t seen Ben for almost two years and he’s turned into a full-grown man. Good looking, polite, helpful, industrious. Love him!

Today is a full moon. Ben and I went to find a clear spot to catch the moonrise. Dense clouds were on the horizon so I didn’t catch it till it was way above the trees. My tripod is good, but I’m using a [amazon:B000JLK5PK:inline] (which is a good ball head!), and the plate is loose. So the camera wasn’t steady for the moon shots, but I did figure it out by the time my attention was drawn to the house light reflections on the river. We were standing on the shoulder of Summit Street, with lots of traffic behind us. People probably thought we were crazy… It’s so good to be home!
