Boppin’ along the boardwalk – Part 2.

This is Part 2 of a morning spent in Wyandotte boppin’ along the riverfront. First, there was an hour jaunt on the boardwalk at Bishop Park where I was taking photos of that gull that insisted on posing for me, even sans snacks. You can click here if you missed last Monday’s post.

Then I was off to BASF Park which is a mile away. Sandwiched in between these two riverfront parks, you must pass through Downtown Wyandotte’s business section along busy Biddle Avenue.

My sole purpose for visiting Wyandotte was to take photos of their Christmas decorations, because the shops, as well as Biddle Avenue, are always decorated well in advance of the annual Wyandotte Christmas Parade.

Wyandotte has held a Christmas parade for eons – in fact, the 2020 version would have been the 77th annual Wyandotte Christmas Parade. Tradition has that parade going along Biddle Avenue on the last Saturday before the Thanksgiving holiday. Wyandotte is a fun town with lots of small shops, eateries and in close proximity to two waterfront parks. I’ve been to their Christmas Parade many decades ago and mingled with a crowd of thousands which lined the street awaiting Santa’s arrival.

I follow the local news on Facebook and was surprised to see the Wyandotte Christmas Parade was still on schedule, so I decided I’d get some photos for a holiday blog post. However, a few days before that planned excursion, the News Herald announced that the parade and tree-lighting ceremony were scratched due to COVID concerns.

I decided to go to Wyandotte anyway, as surely the shopkeepers and City had instilled a little Christmas spirit down the main avenue. So off I went. My hunch was 100% wrong. I guess everyone was feeling like Scrooge due to the pandemic.

There was plenty to see anyway on that morning meander.

The “Winter in Wyandotte” sign, prominently displayed at Maple and Biddle, reminded me that yes, Winter was on the way, though you wouldn’t know it from the still-blooming white chrysanthemums in a planter near the base of the sign.

While walking that mile-long route from Bishop Park to BASF Park, I saw this evergreen, with pine cones dripping down. Inhaling deeply, I was reminded that this fragrant tree instantly made me think of Christmas.

Soon I was at my destination where I spent the next 90 minutes enjoying a gorgeous Southeast Michigan Fall day. Some trees still had not dropped their leaves and were ablaze in color.

As I strolled along the Detroit River, there were the usual seagull shenanigans and drama (stay tuned) …

Even the Willow tree was reluctant to shed its leaves.
Take a seat and a load off your feet and contemplate life.
It was a perfect day for fishing. The Trenton Channel Power Plant is in the background.
Yonder was a freighter going full steam ahead toward Detroit.
Here’s a close-up of that freighter, one of the Canada Steamship Lines’ fleet.
Downtown Detroit looms large in the background.
The buoy was rockin-and-rollin’ after the freighter passed. I’ll bet the seagull was seasick.
On one of the overlooks, still another seagull ponders its watery kingdom.
Enough pondering … it flew off to look for some breakfast.
Seagulls are a’plenty at this venue. This gull had a primo seat to watch the world go by.
Here’s a close-up photo of my little gull friend above.
Unbelievably, even in mid-November, the pollinator garden still had some hangers-on.
I think this sign should read: “Please BEE careful” don’t you?

P.S. – I was able to get a few shots of Christmas decorations in the Park’s memorial garden when I came upon lots of bulbs and baubles on two identical memorial trees, but that was it.

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

  1. Too bad about the parade, such is our way of life these days. The pine cones make me smile as does the beautiful purple flower. I think it is an Astor? I have never seen a park sign like that, I rather like it. 🥰

      Yes, it was sad Kim and I was surprised it was still on schedule, then cancelled which didn’t surprised me. The pine cones looked so festive on that tree in the street – not even a holiday decoration, just au naturel! I wondered what those flowers were … I was surprised they were blooming away in mid-November. I liked the sign too. They don’t spray a lot of the wildflower patches in the larger parks as they get alot of butterflies and bees and they flourish, especially when we’ve had a rainy Spring.

    Your photo with the Detroit skyline in the background reminded me of the Renaissance Center. When I was in college in nearby Indiana in the ’80s, the “Ren Center” opened to much fanfare. It brought the hope of resurgence to downtown Detroit. I don’t know if it succeeded in that regard but it was sure an impressive collection of buildings.

      I remember when the Detroit Renaissance Center opened up too Dave. I was going to college, then started working Downtown and watched it going up. It was the jewel of Detroit back then. The glass elevators, a rotating sky-top restaurant and lots of shops were quite a draw in those days. I worked there for a short time while at the ad agency when our client, Lincoln-Mercury, wanted Y&R to move closer to their offices. Now, GM owns most of the “Ren Cen” having acquired the space of each of the various tenants as their respective leases expired. There will be an office/shopping complex that was rumored to be the City’s tallest skyscraper, towering over the Ren Cen and will be at the site of the former Hudson’s department store . Hudson’s was demolished in 1993 after standing vacant for several years and it took up an entire City block. The new project is the brainchild of developer/billionaire Dan Gilbert and will be finished in 2023.

        It’s difficult for me to imagine that too Dave as the Ren Cen really was one of a kind back then. I have not been in Downtown Detroit in 11 years as I was laid off, then hired back but worked from home since 2011. They have really spruced up Downtown Detroit since I was last there. When the Ren Cen opened, they built Hart Plaza, a huge outdoor plaza with an underground area where there was a restaurant called “The Down Under” and, for years they had ethnic festivals there every weekend – they had live music, all native dishes which you could buy under the plaza from vendors, then sit and listen to the music up top. It was a big draw – Mexican and Greek festivals were long weekends. Someone got the “bright idea” to move them away from the Riverfront and Hart Plaza. So once you could pop over on your lunch hour or wander down there from the office after work. No more. It’s too bad as the Plaza stands empty except once a year for the big Jazz Festival.

      Thanks Anne – it is a beautiful walk along the shoreline and I was lucky to discover this park last March. With this brutal cold spell we are getting, it would be beautiful to visit there as the waves just freeze in place, then when the ice thaws, the slabs of ice crash onto the boulders along the shoreline.

        I’ve been at the River twice with all the ice and it was just awesome to hear and see. One time the Detroit River was frozen in place at Bishop Park; the second time was at Dingell Park and there were ice floes with ducks riding along on them and seagulls, a heron and an eagle “fishing” while perched on an ice floe. In that instance, the ice sounded like ice cubes in a glass, a tinkley noise. I liked the noises too. Up at the Mackinac Bridge, it’s brutally cold and they get ice that turns blue and piles up on shore – people go to take photos of the blue ice. I know I wrote a post last year about walking at Council Point Park and I think I was the only one and the ice was moving and creaking and the branches were touching the ice and/or each other. Today, in the St. Clair River, the ice piled up, the water level rose and there was massive shoreline flooding … a lot of homes are in dire straits. That is not near me. It is in Algonac.

  7. Isn’t it great that gulls will pose even when there is no food in it for them? I think gulls are friendlier than many people realize. I love the picture of the gull rocking on the buoy and of course, the close-up. 🙂 I have never heard of a Christmas parade before! Maybe next year I will get to see one on your blog. We have a Groundhog Day parade, though, but not this year. And the St. Patrick’s Day parades are called off again this year. Imagine that, this will be the 2nd St. Patrick’s Day of the pandemic… The picture of the pinecones on the evergreen is so festive — I love it.

      They stand like statues sometimes don’t they? I have a Wordless Wednesday post for tomorrow of some gulls squabbling. I started to just include them in this post, but figured their expressions made it an interesting sequence for Wordless Wednesday. How they interact with one another and the deadpan looks make me smile sometimes. When I was young, I went with my father to Toronto’s Santa Claus parade – it was downtown and a big deal and a large crowd. It was televised as well and when we moved here my mom would watch it on the Canadian station and was very homesick.

      I am going to write a post for next week about Detroit’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I walked in a virtual race on Thanksgiving Day to help raise funds for the parade. They did not send the tee-shirt and medal until about ten days ago. So, I’m going to write the post and mention my eight-year blogiversary at the same time. I am so behind here it is not funny and behind in writing as well. I always like having a post ahead, but that’s not happened in a while. They have a big St. Patrick’s Day parade and celebrations in Corktown near Downtown Detroit and it was also cancelled for the second year. They have Paczki 5K runs and parades that occur around Fat Tuesday – also cancelled.

      I liked those pinecones too Barbara – they looked so festive and smelled fragrant. There was my Christmas magic I was trying to capture – glad you liked the photo.

      It was such a beautiful Fall day Sabine – I enjoyed it immensely. We’ve got snow, but I’ve been able to salvage a walk as they salted the streets. I was surprised as that initial snow came down Sunday very early so I figured they’d not clear the snow and salt. I was pleasantly surprised and got a walk in yesterday and today. Thursday night we’re getting a wintry mix and into the Deep Freeze with single digits (in the daytime) – not looking forward to that at all.

We have 1-2 inches again overnight as Winter settles in. We had 4.2 inches of snow on Thursday night layered with freezing rain. Hope you fared better.

        I was wondering if you had walked in this bitter cold Linda. I didn’t – it was just too cold out. I did run the car over to check on mom, and did 3 short laps around my back yard, but I was too afraid of falling if I walked on the street, as there is a layer of ice under the snow and slush. The forecast is for bitter cold all next week, so I don’t think much walking will get done. I’m afraid of breaking a hip if I fall, so am being very cautious. My neighbour did my driveway for me, but we only got a couple of inches. I have the pipes downstairs dripping tonight. It’s stay inside and write kind of weather!

        I did not walk again today Joni. I thought I’d give it a try, not for steps/miles, but for the squirrels and would not take my car out. It was warmer today, just a tad, but same reason as you … even though I was bundled up in double layers, the City has still not plowed the street, nor salted it … I don’t understand that as the snow fell last Thursday night. The cross street is a busier street and it was not plowed either. So I turned around and came back. Like you I worried about falling and we had more snow last night. I hate Winter. I have the cupboard doors open in the kitchen and bathroom and taps dripping as well as downstairs … will go downstairs before bed and put a small load of laundry in. It is cold downstairs as I leave the cellarway door closed as I sit near that door at the kitchen table. I did a post for tomorrow and for Wednesday yesterday, proofed tomorrow’s and added some info and finalize it and against my better judgment, did a post for Thursday (Blogiversary). Valentine’s Day post will be just three days later, but mostly pictures. I hope next weekend is better – all week for cold – not nice. I wasted 90 minutes messing with the phone and trying to reach AT&T re: the static and just getting here now. Not nice and have a half-hour before “ACG&S” … I am going to send you a link separately. I think it won’t go to SPAM as it is a WordPress blog. The woman who wrote it told me to watch for it to send my friend/fellow blogger because she wrote about Charles Dickens last year and I told her you always read “A Christmas Carol” and like Dickens.

        I did a short walk today, in my mom’s subdivision, down the middle of the street as it was the only bare pavement – there was no traffic, as everyone was inside watching super bowl. I saw one other walker and no cars. It was just good to get out, but frigidly cold on the face, even with a mask on for warmth. A whole week of this ahead. My basement is like an igloo. I keep the door to it from the kitchen closed too. I wanted to get a small rolling fireplace heater for down there, but didn’t get to Lowe’s in the fall – it was in the sale flyer. I tried to find out if it was energy efficient but the clerk didn’t know, and then the sale was off and now I wish I had bought it, just to take the chill off, as there is only one hot water rad for the whole basement. Keeping fingers crossed and taps dripping….

        I’ve not walked since Thursday morning, so glad I savored that walk which I wrote about today. We have the same crummy week of cold weather and just as it begins to moderate later in the week, we will get snow on Thursday night and back with an Arctic Blast all next weekend. I hope I get back to the Park this week sometime. Our streets still have not been plowed or salted – I guess now, after waiting four days, they are waiting for tonight’s snow, but it is ridiculous. I thought I’d see people complaining about it in the Facebook City and Crime forums but no one said anything. My hands look terrible, chapped, cracked and bleeding. I don’t know whether it is from washing them so much (handling the mail though I wear heavy gloves and don’t open it for a few days), but using water as hot as I can stand it. I’m more inclined to think it is due to being out in the cold, even with gloves on – this weather is brutal. I find a mild soap and my hands are soft, then they change the ingredients and I suddenly have cracked hands. That happened with Purpose soap in a pump after using it for decades to wash my hands and handling my contact lenses. I hate going downstairs too, especially in this brutal weather as I do a small laundry load before bed and one first thing in the morning – I cringe as I walk downstairs. As long as we don’t lost power and the pipes crack. Have you ever considered a permanent, instant-on generator Joni? AT&T has to come fix the phone as it has static and like the last two times it will eventually just die and likely due to the squirrels chewing the wires once again. They chew the wires, the moisture gets into the cable, static, then it goes. And today I published my post and then once again it went missing for about six hours.

        We have the same frigid forecast. The only walking I’ve done since Sunday was in the grocery store, pushing a heavy cart around! We’re stocked up again for another 3 weeks. I don’t know anything about generators but they scare me because of newspaper stories about carbon monoxide poisonings. I think I just need a plug in heater for the basement for the very cold days, but it seems to be okay so far, no pipes freezing and I don’t use the basement anyway. My hands are cracked and dry too, but not as bad as when I worked, as then they would be covered with paper cuts, from the constant hand washing. I think it’s the dry air in the house, from keeping the furnace cranked so high. I didn’t notice if your post went missing, as I haven’t read for several days. I’ve started editing the second draft and spent 3 days on Chapter one, as I had to keep stopping to do research. I’m aiming for one chapter a week, and 3-4 hours a day, so that cuts into the reading and blogging time….I’m wondering if I should just put a pause on my blog for awhile, as I hate to lose the momentum.

      A beautiful Fall day for sure Zena – and now, we have this Polar Vortex, snow, more snow on the way. I’d love to be back on that River walk. Thank you – I try to make it so people feel they are walking alongside me.
