Carillon Historic Park & Hawthorn Hill

Saturday 7/1 We spent the day absorbed in history.

We had reservations for the 10:00 am tour at Hawthorn Hill and were at the Carillon Historic Park visitors center about 10 … Continue reading »

Our first stop today was … Continue reading »

Coach Maintenance and Gatherings of Friends

June 11 – 13 All-Brite was back again at 8:30 am to double check any flaws and do any touch ups as needed.  I’m really quite impressed with their work as they check and double check to make sure that everything is done right. We got a few more chores done (dusting, laundry, hooked up … Continue reading »
