When I went to visit my beautiful friend Diane from Good Mourning Glory a few weeks ago, I got lost. That is not news, I get lost a lot. I was stuck in a scary part of Detroit while I had to wait for a drawbridge to let a freighter pass through. I would have enjoyed the event more if I wasn't concerned for my life, but it was still somewhat cool. (There are nice parts of Detroit, for those of you who only know what you hear on the national news.)
The pics are from my cell phone, thru my car window, so they aren't the best quality. You can watch the progression of the boat going under the bridge. It took about a half an hour in total.
Once the bridge went down, I got out of there and found the lovely neighborhood Diane lives in safe & sound!
Fun fact: Michigan is the only place in the continental United States that is actually north of Canada. Windsor, Ontatio sit across the Detroit river, south of most of Michigan.
