Air Zoo

Monday the family and I took a road trip to the Kalamazoo Air Zoo. There is a great collection of airplanes, rockets, bombs and other interesting items. The Air Zoo features free admission, but the rides do cost a little. The last surviving SR71b Blackbird (there are other models) is on loan from NASA - as well as a B25 bomber in the main campus building. The East Campus building features more planes as well as rockets, and space craft.

Magic Moon Rise

During the week we had at Tom's cottage - there were magical moon rises each night. The first night the moon rose near the tip of Northport Point. Each night the moon moved closer to Paradisa Point and came up later and later. Each one started out blood red, and changed to various shades of deep orange as it arose.
