Heavenly Shades Of Night Are Falling   4 comments

Yesterday Shirlee and I made our annual road trip to place flowers on the graves of our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. We go from our home in Holton to Newaygo where her dad and mom are buried, then to Woodland where her dad’s family is, on to the south side of Nashville where her mom’s side are and finally to Charlotte where my mom, her parents and my dad’s grandparents have been laid to rest. It was a trip of a little over 300 miles. And at our age it was a bit tiring.

We stopped in the little town of Stanton for lunch and discovered a neat restaurant, Morning Lori Diner and Bakery. Not only was the food good, but the atmosphere was something out of a time past.

The restaurant is part of the Hotel Montcalm which was built in the 1860’s and has been restored authentically to its original decor and furnished with antiques. There is an antique store and the Morning Lori restaurant downstairs, where breakfast is served also contains antiques. All room rates include a full breakfast. Check them out at here.

And to top it off there was an interesting sunset as we drove by the turnout high above the Muskegon river as you drive into Newaygo on M82 from Howard City. (Called the High Rollaway by the locals.) What a great end to a wonderful day!
