A few hours early - because it's late, I'm tired, and tomorrow is yet another busy day, on the run all day.
We made it to Port Huron yesterday. We were supposed to meet our friends at our favorite park with the beach. It was PACKED. So packed, that we had to meet our friends elsewhere - by the time they got there, the parking lot was full.
We headed on down to Thomas Edison park, it's a lovely place with a very long walk along the St. Clair River, which empties into Lake Huron. A very busy city - major border crossing and lots of freighters coming in and out of the river. This is a pic of the Blue Water Bridge, which connects Port Huron to Sarnia, Ontario, Canada.
This is the Canadian side, across from the park. It's not really this close, I had the zoom on.
Here's one of the freighters coming down the river
heading out here, to Lake Huron. My favorite Great Lake.
It was 90 degrees in the shade and a perfect day for boating.
Lots of seagulls.
Downtown is very pretty, but sad with so many empty historic buildings.
One of my favorites isn't empty, though. We had dinner at Powers Diner. Here's mum. [And Sam off to the side.]
There was a pretty house near the park, we couldn't resist crossing the street to look at the garden.
After we ate, we went back to the beach, but still didn't make it down to the sand. Instead we just relaxed under the trees, and enjoyed visiting with our friends. Just a perfect, lazy hazy summer day. We even had a free concert - the Salvation Army came and did a concert, with free food [that we didn't partake of]. A very blissful day.
I'm really behind in reading blogs. And will probably stay behind for the week. You might not hear much out of me this week. I'm still here, just so busy - and not feeling well at the moment, hopefully that will pass quickly. I'll catch up as soon as I can, I surely do miss you all!
