We took a few days off from work and drove up north to Cheboygan State Park for Labor Day Weekend. Once again we rented the "modern cabin" with our friends jennlk, johnridley, mbumby, traveller42, and our non-lj friend Bill. Everyone other than myself walked the Mackinac Bridge at least once (most went both ways now that that is an option). After the big bridge, jebra came back to the camp to fetch me so that I could join everyone in walking the State Street Bridge. jebra was #222 in line, making me #221. There were approximately 425 walker.
While we were in Cheyboygan, mbumby, jebra and I ran two Ingress Missions (Checking out Cheboygan Part 1 and Part 2), which lead to me getting up close with the fog horn and the Cheyboyan Crib Light.
On the day before the bridge walks we had an early dinner at Darrow's restaurant along with jebra's sister and her husband.
On the drive to camp and again on the way home we stopped in Prudenville to see jebra's parents. It was good to see them as I haven't been north all summer due to not wanting to leave the kittens home alone for any length of time. For this trip I put out extra food, the usual abundance of water, and two extra litter boxes. They didn't look at all traumatized by the time alone and surprisingly they did not give us the cold shoulder when we came back. In fact both Pandez and Esme greeted me at the door. A little while later Fiona appeared and let me pet her. All three cats shared the same bowl of water when I put out a fresh one last night which also did not seem to be part of previously normal behavior. The kittens also appear to be slightly larger than they were when we left. Being kittens, that shouldn't have surprised me.
In Mom news, she's doing good and we're scheduled to go and see her on Saturday. I haven't laid eyes on her since February so I am really looking forward to the visit.
