(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Waymarking Edition

Spent several hours wandering around Detroit this weekend.  
Just on the corner of Woodward and Warren are some amazing places!

Hecker Mansion

Inns on Ferry Street - the "inn" consists of 5 houses in a row

Josephine Ford Sculpture Garden in front of the Creative Center

Detroit Institute of Arts - Rodin's Thinker is out front

Detroit Public Library

Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History

Detail on the Maccabees Building

Park Shelton Art Nouveau Building

Patterns of Detroit Mural - Look!  A Quilt!

Scarab Club

Freer House - once the home of the Peacock Room

I'm not saying all of Detroit is like this... but you don't have to look far to see remnants of its Golden Age!

"Not all who wander are lost".  Visit to see more!

(Almost) Wordless... Friday!

I normally post waymarking and sightseeing pictures on Wednesday, but the trip over the long weekend has thrown off my schedule so here are some gems from my most recent trip.  Hope you enjoy!

Mad Knitter covering water fountains, trees, park benches.

State Park right outside the campsite

Julia and Jenna being absolutely adorable!

Michigan waters are so blue!

Jon finding the first cache of the trip!

2nd largest pie pan in the world!  According to the sign, was the largest in the Guinness Book of World Records in 1987.

Formerly Bowers Harbor Inn - Can we say haunted?  Cool story

Sister city monument outside historic county courthouse

Went caching in these woods.  The post warned of zombies.  Believable, eh?

Julia found her first cache!

Lighthouse on Old Mission Peninsula

Proud Grandpa!  

Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
