The Detroit RiverWalk
The Detroit RiverWalk (our front porch) is just getting more beautiful with each successive visit. In our meanderings this weekend, we found the beautiful Great Lakes-themed carousel which has our familiar fish on it like sturgeon and walleye and, well, a mythical river mermaid, also! The standing glass sculpture, looking like a wave, shows us a map of the St Lawrence Seaway. All in all, the Riverwalk is pretty darn cool. They are currently expanding it and it will be 5 1/2 miles long when it is done. Awesome. On September 16th, the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy is holding a fundraising gala called the Shimmer-on-the-River-Party from 6-11pm. Be there!
