747 @ Detroit (DTW)

Hard to believe this machine is probably 30 years old – still looks graceful as it ready to leave DTW for who knows where.  I loved the light and color on the side of the plane as I was walking through the terminal.

Back in June I had the pleasure of visiting the Fisher Building.  A page from a bygone era.

Road Trip


It’s been a long ride in the car this morning. we started out around 3 a.m. and have made it better than halfway so far. I always enjoy seeing the arch as we enter St. Louis.

Some would say this is where the West begins but everybody knows that Fort Worth is where the West begins.

We got to stop and take advantage of a sonic of the road and have lunch what a beautiful day.

An afternoon out


My maintenance at work finished earlier than planned (by about 12 hours), so I decided to go and explore Detroit a bit today.  I started out around 1 PM and headed for right outside of Detroit.  I walked around this park and snapped a few pictures.

Then I drove down Jefferson to the East a bit and drove over to … I was amazed at how big the island was and how much was there.  Things that I saw today on :  A Cricket Game, SCCA Auto Cross, Fountains,  Picnic Grounds, Model Boat Lake, Fishing Lakes, Zoo, Boat Club, Conservatory, and a

After spending time on Belle Island, I drove down town to the (where GM’s has it’s Headquarters’)   I walked the show room in the building then walked out to the and walked south along the river enjoying the view.  There were a number of jet ski’s in the water and a bunch of small boat traffic.  There were also some ferries that seemed to be on the Canadian side of the river,   There was also a paddle wheel boat, The that was making it’s way north and a freighter going south

Celebrating our first full day of being a Michigan resident (well kind of…. still don’t have a home).   We are doing I-Hop for breakfast and then taking in the Detroit Zoo.   Pictures to follow…..

As we arrived at the restaurant we ran into an older woman who looked to be really down on her luck.  If she had enough cash for breakfast, I would be surprised.  She didn’t ask for anything just waited to be seated like the rest of us, but you could tell that she was truly homeless.  Once we were seated, we told our waitress that we wanted to pick up her meal.  It was not much of a gesture, but if it helped her just a bit that would make me feel better.

My Weekend in Detroit


We made a trip up to Detroit (an easy 7.5 hour drive) last week to check things out and pick up some equipment for work and bring them back to Baltimore.  While we were there we decided to check out some homes in the area… below are some examples:

The Lake House (the Green Annex will be removed at some point)

The Town House (Grosse Pointe on Lake St. Clair)

Nuts, I think there should be more of them

Exhausted after all that driving….
