as chaperone's of 18 Juniors and Seniors. So with that
being said here is our trip (the short version). You can
see more pictures on my Flickr.
Here we are, two of the 6 chaperons. My sister Sue on the
left and me on the right.
Our group of young adults from the Tech Center.
Purpose of this trip was to explore the possibilities of
Hotel Management. It was really interesting to me, I had
more questions than the kids...
It was more about the horses by the time we got to the
island. Horses everywhere. Jennifer are these
Gypsy Vanners? They were beautiful. All I could smell
was horses everywhere we went. Much nicer that car and
diesel fumes. I know, you probably have to have been around
horses to know what I mean.
These were the guys that took us for our buggy tour
around the island. Hard working horses that's for sure.
One of the scenic areas we stopped at. It was a chilly, but
sunny day. Our wagon had blankets we huddled under.
The only flowers to see were some daffodil's. No leaves on
the trees at all. In fact we saw a pile of snow in the shade
of a tree.
Outside the Grand Hotel.
The second floor lobby where you could lounge. The
man who decorated wanted to bring the feel of the gardens
indoors. Lots of flowery colors, but not over powering.
We had a short talk from the hotel manager and then we
went in for the buffet luncheon. 80 feet of tables loaded
didn't do it for you either, you could rent bicycles. There
are hundreds of them everywhere. Living on the Island
Speaking of healthy foods, look at all that fudge.
Fudge everywhere, any flavor you could want. I think I
bought 3 pounds of it. I don't care if I ever have fudge again!
Seems like every other store sells fudge. Their claim to fame.
Our favorite came from Jane's. Yummo!
