We did the workout in the morning and then went (can you guess?) geocaching!

This time we visited Plymouth, Northville, South Lyon and environs. My impression is that these southern Michigan "outlands" are more affluent and well-maintained than we see in northern Michigan. You do see the occasional property that's a real disaster, but they are few and far between. You just don't see the level of poverty around these parts that you see on the back roads up north. The farms on the gravel roads are picture perfect - all of the outbuildings are freshly painted and the grounds are gorgeous. It really makes for enjoyable exploring. The parks that we were in are beautiful, too.

Of course, we think that T.C. is the most beautiful place we could possibly be, but away from the waterfront and the mansions, on the back roads things sometimes look a little desperate up there.

In the evening we went over to Sniders and we all had a fantastic dinner at the Szechuan Chinese Restaurant on Ford Road.
