Local Resources: Clinton River Trail, Detroit Public Library

Local Resources: Clinton River Trail, Detroit Public Library, Voting

Update: On May 5, the State of Michigan held a special election for a sales tax increase; it was defeated. But what was not a failure was being able to vote a s resident of the City at my polling place on Berg Road.

0505151741While I am still hacking away at my house, I am trying to balance the work with some recreation and local resources. The two I most recently have had the pleasure of seeing, doing, experiencing  have been bike riding on the Clinton River Trail in Oakland County/Pontiac area,  and checking out materials from the Detroit Public Library (having a library card is THE most important piece of plastic any one’s wallet). I am reading the sequel to Abe Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, by SGS.

Here are some photos of those sites:
