I crossed over the grand river in the town of Saranac, and I saw the dark red train depot with the conical roof. I had to stop and get a pic of it. The historic depot was built in 1907, and served the town until the 1950s when cars and trucks became the preferred method of transportation. The dilapidated depot was purchased by the historical society in the 1990s who restored it and moved to its current location.
I got a long look at the old grand old depot, when I went to leave after taking pics of it, my old minivan would not start. I guess I should have taken my jeep but you know what they say about hindsight. Thanks to White Knight Towing for the tow, and to Young’s Chrysler in Ionia. they squeezed me in and getting two techs on it to change my fuel pump so I could get back home. One thing I have learned in my travels around the mitten state is there are a lot of nice people in this wonderful state.
P.s. I made good use of my downtime and wrote this post while waiting for my car to be fixed.
Good thing I have my books on sale this weekend. I hope you will consider getting one since I have a new fuel pump to pay for.
