A Grand Little Trip - Grand Rapids, Michigan

We could not have had better weather - yet another "Picture
Postcard Trip." We were both enchanted by this small town
that's also a big city for the area - everything was so green and
lush as to be very inviting, and the people all have that warm
Mid-western appeal - we just don't know about those winters!
