No school=Road trip!!!

Yesterday we didn't have classes because of academic advising day. So Mike and I tried to think of something to do.

Mike works for a carpet cleaning company and they often travel a little ways to do some cleaning. Earlier this summer he was working at some jobs out in Saugatuck, and he had said he would like to show me some things there. We decided to go down there yesterday. We left his house around 11:30 and got to Saugatuck about noon. We went to a coffee shop and got some hot chocolate before walking around. Mike wanted to show me a boat he worked on, but all the boats were already out of the water. We walked around and looked in the windows of the stores and just talked. After we walked basically through the whole town, we got back in the car.

We decided we were just going to go South, with no destination in mind, just drive. We drove until we were both kind of hungry, so we stopped at McDonald's. I don't even know what town we were in. We were there for a long time, just talking and hanging out.

We continued driving until we got to Indiana. We turned around in Michigan City. On the way back up, we decided to stop at Four Winds Casino. Neither of us have been to a casino before and we thought it would be kind of fun to check it out. It was amazing! We had to follow a long twisty road to get to it. Then we walked in and it's all outdoorish styled. We couldn't do anything because you have to be 21 to go on the floor (what happened to being able to gamble at 18? Can anyone explain that law to me?) It was fun to just walk around and look at the machines and watch people. We decided that we'll go back when we're 21.

Then we kept driving north and stopped at a State Park/Trail in South Haven. We didn't want to walk or anything, just get up and take a bathroom break. It was nice outside so we stood out of the car for a while. We made one more stop in Fennville so Mike could show me some other big houses that he's worked at.

We stopped at Mike's house for a few minutes and then we went to a Chinese buffet. It was delicious! We rented a movie and went back to his house to watch it and just relax.

It was a lot of fun. Not just because we didn't have school. But just driving with no place in mind and no time contraints, just being free to drive where-ever and stop when-ever. I think we need on day off of school each week! :)
