Last Friday we set out on a little trip - we drove to Toronto to visit with our son for a few days, then we moved on to the US - our destination being The Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio - we have been wanting to go there for a while, we listen to the Classic Rock channel all the time on XMSirius Radio, they broadcast right from the Rock Hall - we saw the Alan Freed Studio where all the music happens and so much more - there are seven floors of exhibits, if we went back tomorrow, we'd see things that we didn't see the first time round. If you love music, that's the place to go - loved it!!! Our trek took us into New York, Pennsylvania for a little bit, Ohio and then on to Michigan - so much fun!! We had family time, saw lots of neat things, ate great food, stopped at numerous thrifts and antique markets -that's a post for another day!
Travel along with me - here's a few sights along the way...
Look at the price on those mushrooms - $249.99 a pound - they should be under lock and key - I just had to take a picture of that!!
The Maple Leaf is constructed out of seats from the old Maple Leaf Gardens - that's where we were - it's a huge grocery store now - and that's where the mushrooms were!
Yes, that's Mason Jars you see in that light fixture - at Union Social - the food was delicious there!!
The famous CN Tower.
That's my handsome son and his lovely lady - at Granite Brewery - another great meal!
We bought lobsters - they're getting ready to go in the pot!
No trip is complete without delicious food - is it??
Sights along the way, including the longest covered bridge in the US - Smolen Gulf, Ohio
Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland - that bus belonged to Johnny Cash - there were compartments for him, June and their son, you wonder how they ever moved around in there - it was so cramped - only four people were allowed in at a time.
There is just so much to look at, there's no time to be taking pictures, but I did get a few. That's a Doors display, Michael Jackson costume, a letter from Charles Manson to Rolling Stone, gowns that the Supremes wore.
Lower left is me at the Rock Hall - we were there until closing, the crowd has thinned out at that point, it's a miracle there is no one else in the picture. Lower right is the Christmas Story House, also in Cleveland, yes, that's the house from the movie, the leg light is even in the window. By the time we got there, it was closed but I was happy just to see it - that's on the list for next time! The horse was outside of a Target in Saginaw, Michigan and that's the Makinac Bridge, what a structure!
We had such a great time - six days on the road - it was great!!!
Hey, I'm listening to Classic Rock right now - I saw the DJ just a few days ago!!!!
