The Blog Tech's wife is out of town this weekend for work so yesterday he and I headed out on one of our road trips. We wanted to find lots of local food so we headed towards Lake Erie on back roads. We saw wonderful flower beds in all of the small towns.
We came upon a small market place in one little village.
I like the concept of this place. Locals bring in their art work, baking, knitting, canned goods, honey and produce and fruit they grow and make themselves. They don't have to be there to sell it themselves. There are only a couple people who work there to help you. It's very self sufficient.
We stopped at endless roadside markets and bought lots of stuff.
As I was driving through one town I spotted a giant bronze acorn.
I love acorns.
How I would love to have one of these in my garden!
The historical house was wonderful too.
We stopped by the lake to eat some perch and whiting for lunch.
Then we drove along the lake for a while.
You know you are in Trump country when even the gas stations have Jesus signs.
It's corn country too. It's hard to imagine what is done with all of the corn. We drove for hours and corn was beside us the entire time.
Suddenly we spotted this.
A bit bizarre to see in the middle of nowhere.
But not bizarre enough for The Blog Tech.
Every since he was a little boy, he has loved shaved ice. He chose black raspberry.
