|Lighthouse at Holland|
Sara wanted to see the famous tulips albeit late in the season. Ben wanted to look at Jeeps. Read no further if you are looking forward to a tour of the car dealerships featuring Jeeps.
Follow the yellow brick road across the road kitty-corner from this display to the amazing bronze sculptures of the cherished characters in the book. Interaction with the characters is encouraged. In fact, one cannot help but pet the lion, hug the scarecrow and tin man, and adore sweet Dorothy and her darling dog.
Sculptor Nick Christenson and his crew at Brodin Studios have made an outstanding exhibit that will make visitors smile and remember their experiences when reading the Wizard of Oz or seeing the movie based on the book.
I hope you will someday be able to visit when you're in the West Michigan area.
This little host greets you as you walk across the street from the park.
See what I mean? You can't resist the scarecrow!
The perfect word to describe Dorothy is precious. So is her lovable companion. Who can tell me the name of her dog? Leave the name in a comment below and I'll send you a surprise!
The tin man wins for the best grin.
Now the Fighting Tree was scary, just as in the book. But I ended up laughing.

Thank you for visiting today!!
Neat place! I bet it was fun to get out. I've been working this whole time (I'm a nurse), and even I'm starting to go stir-crazy.
I think you DO need a break. Thank you for your dedication during this crisis.
What a fun place to go, J. Q. We stumbled onto a Wizard of Oz exhibit at a museum in Maine on one of our trips. It was very cool. And the pups name was Toto. Sounds like a great way to celebrate your birthday.
Looks like a wonderful place to visit, and a fun day out. Dorothy's dog was Toto and I loved him most of all. Sorry I cannot visit as I am far away, so thank you for giving me the chance to see it.
Looks a lovely place for a day out. Thanks for sharing the photos!
I wonder if the author is connected to Maine. It would be interesting to check that out. Thanks.
Glad you can virtually visit the exhibit. The sculptor created a darling Toto.
The weather was perfect as well. Glad you could join us via the Internet!!
That Wizard of Oz exhibit looks really neat! It's kind of like a little Disneyland with all the statues. Oz has got to be my favorite modern day fairy tale! I've loved it since I was a little kid.
The name of Dorothy's dog is Toto.
I'm glad you got out for a while with your family!
What a lovely way to spend your birthday. The photographs look marvellous. I'd love to go for a drive. We're still closed down, probably for another month. Take care, Janet.
Hi JQ! I sent you an email about co-hosting the IWSG this week but it bounced. Your range is #2-78. (Only three of you this time.) Thanks!
Great post! Enjoyed the photos, too. The Wizard of Oz is a timeless classic. It’s nice to learn of this tribute!
I like your comparison to a "little Disneyland." You're right. Thank you for stopping by.
Hopefully you'll be re-opening soon. Michigan is starting this month to relax the rules. Finally!! Still masks and social distancing though. I wonder if that will be the norm from now on.
Oops, I wonder why it bounced! Okay. I'll email you to let you know I got the message here. Thanks.
Thank you, Connie. I'm inspired to re-read this classic now.
Thanks to Tricia, Steven and Marsha for getting Dorothy's dog's name correct. A "surprise" will be awarded to them for participating in the "game."Did I miss anyone? Let me know.
Thank you because you have been willing to share information with us. we will always appreciate all you have done here because I know you are very concerned with our. lost ways 3
