Day on the River


Happy husband today, he finally got the boat out.  We had a nice day of cruising from Wyandotte to Belle Isle.  So many were out enjoying the day, both on land and on the water.  I felt like I was eavesdropping into peoples’ day as we floated by.

What a perfect day for a birthday party at the park:

Detroit’s riverfront walk looked so inviting from the water.  Saw several couples riding their bikes along the river, I’ve added that to my summer bucket list.

I also entertained myself looking at the clever boat names.

I would be glad for the weather to stay “Forever June”.

Favorite things


The family cottage is steeped in memories and filled with momentos.  These two collages are treasured by our family.  They were put together by my MIL, D’mama Elaine.

This first one is all about fishing, catching “the big one”.  I love the photo on the right of my BIL Jim…showing off his not so big catch.  And the one of TJ, proudly holding a pine snake.  The girl fisherperson is Lisa, the fish practically jump on the pier or boat for her!

This next collage is of all the grandchildren, our children…they are all grown up now.  Many have kids of their own.  These cousins are all still close, helped by the time we all had together at the cottage.  Perhaps my favorite is little Emily next to big dog Mika.

Thank you to Jack and Elaine for welcoming us, putting up with the chaos, and helping us be a close knit family here on the beach.
