Belle Isle, of course, Mark and I took relatives through the conservatory!
The Belle Isle Conservatory, also known as the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory, is the oldest continually operating conservatory in the United States. Albert Kahn designed it using Jefferson’s Monticello for inspiration. It is beautiful, and a wonderful way to meditate, gather your wits, and find inspiration yourself. Truly one of Detroit’s gems!
We’ve been doing some home work on one of our houses, it’s been keeping us busy this summer.
I’ve been “denailing” boards, I really liked this one!
I’ve had a lot of fun, too. Jane and I took mom on a boat tour!
We reminisced about boats we’d been on.
Mark and I managed to take in a Tigers game, we won!
Tempo spent much of the summer exploring, and taking baths.
My feet, and many other feet, chased out the Nain Rouge this afternoon. The Nain Rouge is responsible for all Detroit’s problems, and every year there is a great parade. The Nain Rouge showed up and taunted us, riding his huge cockroach, and we chased him away for another year!These are just a few of the wonderful folks that helped us get rid of the Nain Rouge. I’ll have more photos at a later date!
