  • While we missed Woodward on Friday night, we did have a fun weekend with the T/A.

    We had near-perfect fall weather on Saturday and Sunday. Could have used a few more rays of sunshine on Saturday, but it was still quite nice.

    Our Pontiac Oakland Club International (POCI) Chapter #16 Michigan Widetrackers held a combined Fall Color Tour and October club meeting on Saturday. We all met at the A&W in Almont as a starting point. Fifteen cars this year, all Pontiacs except for one Chevy, one Buick, and one Saturn.

    While this is far from turn-by-turn accurate, it will give you some idea of the winding route we took to Lexington.

    A few pictures from the drive there.

    We arrived at the lakeside park in Lexington. Fantastic view and colors.

    Not really visible in this photo, there's a great lakes freighter out on the horizon.

    Just enough lens to reach out and see it.

    Back up the hill, members ready the pavilion under two giant pines for our meeting, including laying out donuts and cider.

    Our cars lined up in the parking lot. Just enough space!

    One more peak out across the water during a moment of direct sunshine....

    ...and then off to Port Huron and the International Flag Plaza at the foot of the Bluewater bridge.

    Across the way, two of our active club members are waving hello. They have been unable to join us most of this year due to covid, and this event was no different. We miss them as much as they miss us. So we drove down to wave hello.

    Somewhat less scenic, but more high speed and just as colorful, a run across I69 on the way home.

    Since my wife was not able participate in yesterdays tour, she asked for one of her own today. I just captured this one photo.

    A quick stop in the Kroger for a fresh tank of 90 octane alcohol-free gas, and she's back in her bed, hoping this isn't the last drive of the already-too-short season.

    • Looks like a great time - good route as well. Used to go up to Lexington plenty as a kid, so that view is very much familiar to me - always great! Friends of my parents had a cottage (and later two, right next to each other) right there on the lake, so we'd often go up there for a week or so.

      There's a vineyard up there that I've been looking to go to for a while now. It's only about an hour drive - would be damn gorgeous right now!

      • A vineyard? That would be a good weekend trip right about now!

        • Yup! 3 North Vines. You can see the vines on Google Maps: https://www.google.com/maps/place/59...!4d-82.5832763

          There's also a Vineyard as of last year about 15 minutes away from us, but they're just about closed for the year, and it's been stupid busy there for the last few weekends due to that (and the weather being so nice).
