A Side Trip to Holland
I drove to Holland, Michigan today and had a delightful time. I came on the Odyssey to learn about myself, and I'm learning I can travel just fine all my myself - as long as you are along. I've been told I see the sights when I travel through a camera lens. It's not totally accurate, but I certainly record the trip!

Holland, still working.

|He's not fishing. (He's not real, so of course he's not!)|
He's lowering the wooden shoe for the payment
of passage under the bridge.
When I got to the windmill site, they offered a combination ticket covering the Dutch Village as well. When I first got to the village (after getting lost because I lost the map they gave me) I thought it was going to be a disappointment, but it certainly wasn't. It was the best part of the day, and I highly recommend both parts of the day. Then I wandered down 8th street downtown in Holland and came back to Grand Rapids.
