Boys and The Tregurtha
Finn and Max love to hold big things. Here they are, with all their boy-strength, holding up the Paul R. Tregurtha, a ship that their Grandpa Ed calls "The Queen of the Lakes."
This photo was taken at the Thomas Edison Inn near the foot of the Blue Water Bridge in Port Huron, Michigan. Magnificient large photographs of ships and shipping line the hallways of the hotel's dining area. We stopped by the Edison Inn on Saturday to show the boys the photos and shop at the gift shop where I often find neat nautical items.
We were surprised to learn that the Edison Inn has been sold and will be closing soon. It is expected that the hotel will reopen as a Hilton property, part of county development strategy that includes construction of a convention center and culinary school on the site.
