On the Detroit River

Did you know that June is “National River Month”?  Our Detroit River has been cleaned up and beautified greatly since my memories as a kid.  Just sharing some awesome river and river front photographs today.

The guys, Jeff, Kevin, and Jim (Mr. Kelly of No Whining Allowed) cruised the River on Sunday afternoon.

  1. for history buffs– the tall ship is the Brig Niagara which a commanded by Admiral Perry and won the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812

  2. Thanks for the photos. Parts of Detroit that are way more cheerful than what we see on the way to Karmanos. It must have been a beautiful city once. Great photos.
