After heading down some back roads and past some Michigan corn fields, we stopped in the beautiful little town of Chelsea. In Chelsea I was delighted to get to tour the Jiffy Company. Now I imagine that a lot of you are familiar with the blue and white boxes that house the delicious mixes that help homemakers of all kinds create cakes and corn muffins. The tour is a must do if you are anywhere near the area. There is quite a bit of history discussed, and it took me back to days of baking with my Mom. This was one of those trips I know she would have loved to hear about and see the pictures of. She would have also enjoyed the tour. We left Chelsea and headed toward Port Huron we drove through the little town of Hell, Michigan.
After arriving in Hell we both decided we were pretty hungry. We enjoyed the local attractions and sat down in this delightful little pizza shop which also served as a gift shop, and the Hell, Michigan post office. After lunch we moved on to the Port Huron area and Fort Gratiot Lighthouse.
I love lighthouses and this was a beautiful area and a beautiful museum. Everything was decorated for the holidays with fresh greens hung and lights strung.
This brought us to the end of the day and into the night. Now I wasn’t feeling the greatest so I stayed in the RV for most of the show, needless to say I ended up chasing a drunken gentleman down the road- mic stand in my hand -his pants around his ankles-after I caught him relieving his bladder on our little house with wheels. It actually amazed me that he could run under those circumstances. Well it is always an adventure.
