Finally! I made it to see the Dale Chihuly glass exhibit at the Frederik Meijer Gardens ouside Grand Rapids, in western Michigan... it was awesome, amazing, breathtaking, and magical... I don't know enough adjectives to adequately describe the exhibit, the majority of which was installed outside. Tomorrow is the last day for the exhibit and I'm annoyed with myself that I waited until nearly the last minute to see it... it is such a beautiful exhibit I might have wanted to see it again, at a different time of day, and prepared better for taking photographs.

Afterwards, my girlfriend Yvonne and I drove like crazy to reach Lake Michigan before the sun went down, and reached the lakeshore just as the gigantic hot pink ball of flame touched the very edge of the water on the horizon. We had a terrific meal at the Bil-Mar restaurant in Grand Haven, and I just got home. It was a really terrific road trip for a couple of gals who love art, the outdoors, and spontaneous acts of sheer fun!
Oh, and Happy Halloween!!! (photo courtesy of MOCAD, Detroit)
