We arrived in Groton, CT a couple days before we had to depart for Detroit. We had a wonderful evening catching up with a number of people at Shennecossett and greatly appreciate SV Cutting Class for getting the ball rolling. The night before our departure we were gifted with a sensational sunset sendoff.
The primary purpose of our trip was to celebrate the wedding of my youngest niece Sydney and her husband Rodrigo. It was a wonderful afternoon!

My Brother and his daughter Sydney
A rare sighting….I am NOT wearing shorts!
Even though Magnolia was 700 miles away…we were able to keep an eye on her from the UConn webcam!!!!
We had very little time in Detroit but we did sneak in two special events. Friday morning while every one else was working we ran down to the Ford Motor Company Piquette Plant. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Piquette_Avenue_Plant )
Annette quickly found her care…of course it was Red…and it has pockets too…inside joke
I tended towards the blue coupe…
The volunteer docents gave a great tour and VERY enthusiastic !!!
Later in the afternoon we were joined for dinner by my nieces Lori & Janine…of course we gabbed and missed the picture!!!! Speaking of pictures…our friends Al & Michele sent some of Magnolia who hung on their mooring ball while we gone…THANK Al & Michele!
The day after returning to Connecticut our friends on SV Minx arrived fr a brief stay. As always we enjoyed our visit with Jay and Tonya. It was great fun to introduce Al & Michele as well as Anthony’s Famous Grilled Pizza with homemade Engine Room Dough!!!
Next post the “Summer Tour Of New England” really gets rolling!
