It was beautiful this morning when I set out – a tad cooler than the past few days. I set my sights on the Detroit River and marina area and I fulfilled that goal. The marina was bustling with activity and the seagulls must have expert eyesight, as they were honing in on anyone that was carrying a fast food bag. Maybe they also have a keen sense of smell?
I made that round trip, and halfway through my journey, I paused at the footbridge to take some pictures for a future blog post. My final pit stop was Memorial Park. The pictures featured above are from an earlier foray to that park, and I wanted to share them with you today.
I added about 4 ½ miles to my tally on what turned out to be a gorgeous and very warm holiday weekend.
About Linda Schaub
This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, so this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for four decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, though I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too. - Linda Schaub
