During my trip to Detroit, my friend and I drove out to Belle Isle, which was very pleasant in summer. I shot an iPhone panorama at the southern tip, from which Canada can be seen to the left.
The park was full of tourists and pleasure seekers. People were walking dogs, reading under shade trees, riding bikes, paddling in kayaks, BBQing and grilling, camping, having reunions, visiting the aquarium, and enjoying the greenhouse. We did only a few of things before leaving for Polish food in Hamtramck.
Should you ever find yourself in Detroit, please visit Belle Isle.
A shortened interview with astronaut Col. Frank Borman is worthy read. He sounds to be a refreshingly no-nonsense man who is clearly rare among his generation and surely even more so were he among subsequent generations.
