Michigan Vacation – Day 1 of 6

Day 1 of our 6-day Michigan vacation began on Wednesday, August 7th.

Wednesday was a traveling day. I drove the car; Bob followed on the motorcycle.  We departed Warren, Pennsylvania, at approx. 9:15 AM and rolled into Norwalk, Ohio, around 1:15 PM.   Norwalk was an intermediate destination.  Our final destination was Interlochen, Michigan, where we attended a Vulcan Riders and Owners Club (VROC) motorcycle rally.   When we left Warren, it was cloudy.  It started to rain just east of Painesville, Ohio.  The rain stayed with us all the way to Norwalk.  The downpour was heavy at times.

We spent the night at the Best Western Norwalk.   Our hotel room was stuffed full of furniture: 2 queen beds, a night stand, an end table, desk and chair, refrigerator with microwave on top, dresser with flat screen TV.  As you enter the room there is a closet, a bathroom sink and door leading to the small bathroom.  The room was nice but very crowded.   We stayed at this same hotel on our way back home from Interlochen.  We asked for a room with a king-sized bed.  There was more space in that room.

After checking into the hotel, we ate lunch at Berry’s Restaurant, which was located a couple miles from the hotel in the heart of Norwalk’s Historic Business District.  The ambiance, service and food were all good.

It stopped raining and the sun came out, while we were eating lunch.  We went for a walk after lunch.  Norwalk’s Historic Business District appeared well taken care of.

We traveled approximately 211 miles on Wednesday.  We could have traveled farther.  Our original travel plan, though, was to travel separately.  The original plan was for me to leave mid-morning, and Bob was supposed to leave around 4:00 PM, after work.  Bob decided to take the entire day off work, and we traveled together.  I liked the change in plan.
