During the journey Chris will sketch personal caricatures for all of the children onboard. For the stopover, bring along your own home packed basket or relish the home baked pies, pastries and freshly barbequed hot dogs or smokies prepared for you by the locals. Grab a front row seat as Chris performs his jaw dropping juggling act. Before we leave be sure to visit the Heritage Village and marvel in the restoration work throughout the various buildings.

Be vigilant and stay alert as we plan to outsmart this gang of outlaws and enjoy an uneventful trip to the rural community of Grosse Isle. During the stopover enjoy freshly prepared hotdogs and smokies or bring along your own home packed picnic, but be sure to leave some space for the delicious home made lemon pie or an ice cream cone.
