As requested by Miss Becs
This is one of the local sailing clubs, they are out all summer up and down the lake. I used to love driving home from work and seeing them bobbing on the water.
This is the yacht club or where the King of Grosse Pointe lives. It is so pretty at night.
This is our waterfront park, each of the Pointes has one, ours was a gift from Mrs. Edsel Ford as we folks in the Woods had no waterfront. She gave some land at the edge of her estate. Big Daddy picked up our Park passes last week so we are all set. We have said for years that we should get up and take coffee to the park and watch the sun rise. Never happened, and I don't know why-we are usually up before the sunrise which is about 5:30 here.
No barges today, that will be another trip to the lake, that and the ducks. There was a terrible mess last week, a car hit a duck and the carcass was in the road. That road is posted at 35 MPH and I am sure that some one was speeding, you will see a car pulled over by the police everyday. The ducks, geese and swans can be a nuisance; were a nuisance here as there were not many natural predators. I have not seen as many birds since we got back, plus there are duck hunters in boats and the Ford Estate is rumored to have eagles nesting on the property. I did see one eagle ripping apart a squirrel in the neighbor's front yard before I moved to China. I will investigate further.
