I had a busy week this week. I had a bit of time off from work so I was able to spend time with family and friends. I was able to see the Wednesday night Air Show featuring the Snowbirds from Canada, parachute demo, biplane and F16. It was great fun to watch. My husband was in the Air Force and worked on F16s so it was pretty nostalgic. At the end of the post my Dad’s pictures are shared and he has some wonderful pics of the WWII era planes and the more modern jets that flew over our heads!
Then I went to the Soo Locks and saw an unprecedented amount of freighters. I also went on the Soo Lock boat tour. I have to say it was great and very educational. I learned there are 13 freighters that are over 1000 feet long sailing the Great Lakes. We saw 3 that day and 7 overall. We went into the locks that raise or lower the vessels 21 feet between Lake Superior and Lake Huron. We then saw the steel factory in Canada and went through the Canadian locks. Gorgeous views.
Then I went to a quilt show. I loved the ideas generated. I will share a two pictures and plan to write a full blog post later on in the week.
Then we had pregame dinner for the home town Highland games.
Saturday was the game and the weather cooperated! Here is a little video of my husband’s day.
My dad took tons of fabulous pictures and here is the album:
Now it is back to the work a day routine. Adventures will have to wait for a week or two.
