Today, we got to meet our friends in Port Huron. You might get sick of hearing about Port Huron - but it's where my mah-velous sewing machine tech lives, so I take my machines there, and today I got to pick up my other one after her spa treatment.
And of course, since it was so sunny and beautiful, we did a lot of sitting by the river, watching the boats and ships.
We couldn't go there without stopping by our favorite diner. Dinner was yum, wish you could've joined us! This beauty was parked outside.
While we were sitting idly by the river, I looked up and saw a man walking toward where we were sitting. He was in full scuba gear. I watched in disbelief as he went to the rail, put on his flippers, climbed the fence and fell in! I'd never seen anyone dive in that river before - the currents are so treacherous. We walked over to the railing and stood for awhile, hoping he'd come back up safe and sound. While we were standing there, I looked down the river where it meets the lake, and thought I was seeing things - it looked like an old Chevy convertible was coming down the river. Um, yep, it was! It was a car/boat. I want one. Badly. I also want a zoom on my camera.....*stomps foot* This was the best picture I could get.
See? I need a camera. Please feel free to tell my hubby that. Loudly and with vigor.
After we got over the shock of seeing a car cruising down the river, scuba guy came back. We got into quite a conversation with him - he told us about all the fish down there. There were some bigger than our boys! I'd like to see a picture of that, you'd never get ME down there.
After dinner, we went for a walk along the marina. Lots of pretty boats.
Past the drawbridge.
And I fell. Just to my knees and nothing was hurt but my pride. Why does it always happen in what feels like slow motion? I don't remember it taking so long when I was young.
Got my partner for the Hug Swap today, oh boy! Have to pick out some fabric for that. Also, I found out about a new BOM starting soon, look on the sidebar for the Sweet Nostalgia BOM - it looks wonderful! I've been thinking I need a new project or two. *rolls eyes* But who can resist that?
Oh - came home and opened my email - I won Di's giveaway! Is that not the perfect ending to a perfect day? Thanks Di!!!! Have a GREAT weekend everyone - for you in the US, enjoy the holiday!
