Om and I decided to celebrate our anniversary (which was last week) with a bike ride, but we couldn't manage to schedule it till today.
Om wanted to ride some of the White Pine Trail south of Cadillac. The entire trail runs for 92 miles from Cadillac south to Grand Rapids. It's a rail-trail, on the former bed of the Grand Rapids & Indiana, which became Michigan Northern RR, which was under Penn Central. Of course, that means it's quite level and straight.
That said, it does climb gently to one high point, and there is almost a view from there.
We rode 11 miles to Tustin. There is a small museum there, the Pine River Area Museum, but it wasn't open. I'd like to go back when it is. Small-town museums can be fun, and the collections aren't so overwhelming. Then, we rode back, of course!
Then we went to Ruby Tuesday to eat. I'm not usually impressed with chain restaurants, but I have to say they had a really wonderful salad bar. They had real greens, not just iceberg lettuce, and a large selection of other veggies and toppings to add. There were a few other salads too- potato, macaroni, maybe something else.
We've been putting up with each other for 43 years. I guess we'll go for a few more.
Tomorrow, I'll show you some other things we saw.
