FROM A WATERY TART TO A WATERY FALLS ...




Greeting everyone from Ann Arbor, MI. I hope you all had a fantabulous weekend; I know I did. As you all know on Saturday I left for my Canadian adventure, but first stopping off in Ann Arbor to meet the one and only Hart "The Watery Tart" Johnson.

For all of you who know our Royal Tartness, it was such a thrill to meet her in person. Not only is she witty, charming, and outrageously sweet, Hart lights up a room. After lunch an a two hour tour of Ann Arbor, I am even more of a fan of this fantastic woman. It is definitely worth a trip to visit her in person. We had the most amazing day and Ann Arbor is a gorgeous college town with classic architecture, ivy walls, art galleries, cafes, and even fairy doors.

Today's post is a quick one. I am leaving Niagara Falls today for Montreal.... an eight hour drive... Phew! So I leave you with highlights of Ann Arbor. In tomorrow's post, you MUST drop by for some of THE most amazing pics of Niagara Falls. 

Have a great day everyone!

  5. It's so pretty and green! Jealous ... Looks more like January than August here in South Texas. I'm also jealous of you getting to hang with Hart. I've followed her blog for a long while.

    Safe travels and bring us more photos of Canada! (I'm living through your exploits at the moment, so don't let me down. :-)

    Great pics, Michael! Michigan's a bit north of us, a bit chilly for us at times, but looks gorgeous in the summer.
