This is a continuation of the road trip begun on yesterday's blog.
Seriously, the part of the Inn straight ahead is where my brother and sister-in-law held their wedding reception.
Watch this space tomorrow for a few pictures of downtown Granville.
All the best,

The Vikings came to Cincinnati in the form of an exhibit at the Cincinnati Museum Center.
Although these pictures weren't so great, they do provide some record of our trip to the Viking display at the Museum Center in Cincinnati. This was a traveling display and has now closed to move on to other cities.
Since My Honey was born in Norway, we have made many to the "Old Country." Here's a post from 2015 about a Viking Ship being built on Oslo Fjord in Toensberg, just outside our hotel room:
I also have many, many other posts about our visits to Norway here should you be interested to explore:

We are truly enjoying the warm Spring days as are the birds in our garden. We were sitting on the patio when I snapped these images with the camera on my phone.
The weather here swings from warm Spring days to very chilly late Winter type days.

I took this image at the end of tax season when Catherine was working most of the night and just coming home to take a shower and go back to her office.
Early one morning she sat down on the couch to talk with me and suddenly Erik landed on top of her.
Erik's message was clear: I don't care if it IS tax season! You're not leaving again!

My Honey enjoys wood working, bird watching, and photography.
To combine them all, he built a fruit bird feeder. We can put apples in this feeder as well as oranges.
Retirement is such fun!

Last week I asked My Honey what he wanted for Easter and he'd like Marzipan. Growing up in Norway, Marzipan Candy was a special treat for both Easter and Christmas.
I looked up a recipe on line, got the ingredients, and tried my hand at it.
According to my resident Viking, they tasted perfect! :)

We had a heavy, steady Spring rain recently, so our gold fish pond not only was filled with more water, but earth worms came in with it.
Yummy brunch for the fish!
