July 30 Didn’t do much today. Played with Christine and Bernice. I might go to the movies tomorrow. I’m reading “Torpedo Run” by Robb White
July 31 I went to the movie with Karen and saw Donovan’s Reef with John Wayne and Lee Marvin. The second feature was The man who knew two much. Donovan’s Reef was real funny.
I finished “Torpedo Run” and started “Up Periscope”. also by Robb White.
Aug 1 I finished “Up Periscope” and then started “Flight Deck” by White.
I did some knitting today. Not much else.
Aug 2 I finished “Flight Deck” by Robb White. So I then started “Submarine Wolfpack” by Hardy.
Tomorrow we go on our vacation.
Aug 3 I got up at 8:00 o’clock. We left Detroit at about 8:30. Got to Slepping bear point at about 1:00 o’clock. We ate lunch at 12:00 at Sandy’s in Mesick. We couldn’t get a motel room at the dunes so we decided to go on to Traverse City. At the dunes we had a dunesmobile ride.
We got to Traverse City about 6:00. Couldn’t get a room, so we went to Cadillac and got one.
Aug 4 From Cadillac we went to Petoskey. We got there at about 11:00. Right away we got a motel room. At Cadillac we ate in a cocktail lounge. It was to smoky. We drove around awhile, saw the city. We went to Harbour springs where all the rich people live. The houses were beautiful, so were the boats. We had dinner at a Big Boy.
Aug 5 From Petoskey we drove to Traverse City. From there we drove on home.
While we were in Traverse, we drove up the Old Mission. On the way back we got about 120 lbs of cherries. About 12 cents a pound.
We got home about 6:00 o’clock. It was good to be home again.
