University of Notre Dame and South Bend Highlights

Golden Dome

Yesterday I wrote about, with pictures and videos, our Fighting Irish Game Day experiences. Today I thought I would wrap up this series of articles by selecting the highlights of our trip.

Golden Dome

Well we have just finished our road trip to our hotel in Mishawaka, Indiana. It took just under 8 hours but with the catching up that Harvey and I did the drive did not seem to take that long at all. Here is a slide show with selected pictures of our travel. We went from Toronto to Sarnia and then across through Michigan, down to Indiana and then across to Mishawaka. Once we checked in around 5 pm or so, we headed to the University of Notre Dame campus for a very, very quick walkabout … [Read more...]
