What a busy week I had.
Wednesday- Antique Club Meeting
Friday- Gathering of friends and neighbors
Saturday- Major Spring cleaning..I know I am a little late
Sunday- Bob's daughters took us out for dinner.
this is what we did on Thursday.
We took a river cruise.
We booked this the week before and Wednesday night
they were calling for severe thunderstorms.
I was looking at the radar constantly before heading out.
It was also so hot out, that we sat inside in the air.
Mikayla in her shades.
My daughter and her new beau Joe.
As we were heading out of the Black River into the Big River. (St. Clair River)
A thousand foot freighter was heading up the river.
Heading towards the Blue Water Bridges.
The clouds were coming in and I was getting a bit worried.
Just starting to go under.
See those thunderheads in the background.
We were starting to go out into Lake Huron.
Almost directly under. This was awesome!
In the lake now with more clouds appearing.
In the background is the Ft. Gratiot lighthouse.
This lighthouse once assisted ships from the lake into the river.
Back at the dock one and a half hours later.
In the background is the old railroad bridge that was lowered over the Black River.
Soon it will be torn down as the trains of old do not pass through this location any longer.
Oh yeah, 15 minutes after we were off the boat
the sever weather hit...we completed our tour just in time.
Hope you enjoyed the pics!
Summer Blessings to all.
