Gas Stations of History:
For Wednesday’s stuff (published early):
We are still near St. Clair Michigan. We have been in the Detroit area several times and I am still getting a geography lesson. Before, when down town and seeing water, I thought I was actually looking at Lake Huron, one of the Great Lakes; I was not. I was actually looking at Lake St. Clair; a smaller lake indirectly connecting Lake Huron and Lake Erie.
We are very near the lower end of Lake Huron where we are parked, just a stone’s throw from Canada. We plan to drive into St Clair and play tourist to actually see Lake Huron on the lower end. We have been to the Northern most part where we went to Mackinac Island (Famous for not allowing any motor vehicles) near St. Ignace.
Anyway yesterday we drove back into Yipsi to have dinner with Johnny, Candy and Chelsea. Unfortunately Johnny did not feel like joining us, so we met and had a great time with the ladies. Jack Jr. met his first cousin Candy and her daughter Chelsea for the first time.
It was so much fun catching up. We all went back by Johnny’s apartment and visited for a couple hours. We wore Johnny out, so we all said good bye and headed home.
We did not go downtown Detroit this trip, but I got this shot of
a very little of the skyline thru some construction. Taken from I94 which runs under the city streets.
