It was a last-minute entry on Wednesday morning that was selected as the random winner of Patch's "Object of My Affection" Valentine Contest.
The winner, Jessica Long, of Rochester Hills entered a picture of a sunset on Lake Michigan in Leland.
In the caption she wrote: ".. one of my favorite vacation spots. I might get back there this summer; I'll settle for a night at the Royal Park in the meantime."
Long will receive an overnight stay at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester. The package will include two Valentine martinis and the choice of one of the following to be delivered to her room: Make Whoopie (the couple can enjoy making their own whoopie pies); Sweetie Pies with Milk Shooters; Champagne and dipped berries.
Patch received 194 entries in the contest. The pictures ranged from beautiful animals to beautiful children - including one that has yet to be born. Food, the skyline of Detroit, a wedding ring and God also were among the top loves of Patch readers. Click here to see the gallery of entrants.
Thanks for participating. Congratulations, Jessica!
And Happy Valentine's Day, everyone.
