Skywatch Friday: Lake St. Clair from Lakeshore Drive



If you go to the edge of Detroit, by the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair, and drive north a very short distance (less than 5 minutes), you will see this private area jutting into the lake. Whoever owns it has picnics there occasionally, but mostly, it stands empty.

That is to beautiful for words.

That's so beautiful! I would picnic there every day if I owned it.

Not a bad location for picnics! I cuold stay there even reading a book or just watching the lake. Maybe taking the occasional shot...

What a wonderful spot.

It used to be part of a very large estate, before the newer homes were built there. And someone told me there was a yacht moored there for years. But I can't remember which family it was. I want to say "Dodge" but I am not certain.

Someone from the GP Historical Society would be able to tell you for sure.

So very well composed, Mary...it's a beautiful scene in it's own right, but those ducks ... perfect!

Thank you all so much. I should check out the GP historical!

I'm working on a kids' novel and it's taking all my time. SO sorry.
