We took a little drive to Saline, where we noted that the Dairy Queen is much nicer than the ones in Ann Arbor. We then went over to Curtiss Park and sat by the river for awhile. It was most pleasant … the nicest stretch of weather I’ve seen in quite some time.

I tend to prefer Chelsea to Saline, for some reason. It just has a different look and feel to it that I like better, although I can’t explain it. Still, it was nice to get away. As I’ve said many times before, if I want to get away from home here, it’s a simple 10-minute drive. In San Francisco, it took six hours and you were on crowded, insane roads all the time.

It’s nice to have some space to breathe.
