Road Trip and home to Detroit: Portland headlight and Conservatory

The next stop on our Road Trip was Portland, Maine, where we visited
the Portland Headlight (for a memorial service for a dearly departed).

The home photo is the pond at the Belle Isle Conservatory in Detroit.

I am leaving tomorrow for a trip of unknown length. We were going
camping for ten days in the U.P., but Biker Buddy works at GM and they
are threatening to lay him off in July or September, and offered to
let him work through the July shutdown, so since he may soon not have
a job, he decided he'd better work while he can. Meanwhile, though,
Piano Boy must be delivered to summer camp at Blue Lake in the upper
L.P., on the opposite coast, so that will be my job. I may not be
online.

Beautiful scenery, Mary...your photos of the lighthouse are exquisite!

I like the conservatory one, too.

Hope that everything works out OK...we'll miss you, but have a good and safe trip!

Thanks, Jacob, Goda, and B.

I'm going to Whitehall tomorrow--where did you say you were? I was going to go to the UP, but they are predicting a week of rain.
