Observation: Mix of differences experiences today. First, I saw not one, but two deer crossing signs, which seems so odd in the city. Two, I realized I am really good at texting while riding…not a great skill to have. Three, I saw ten loose dogs today and the biggest one was standing by the street as a woman was cooking steaks on her porch. She was too scared to come out, so I put by bike between her and the dog so she could come out to flip them…lol. I stumbled upon a Prince Tribute Wall Mural, as well as a magnificent tower of detailed wood carvings, a shipping container of sunflowers and an old bus that someone had methodically cut the top off of. Lots of adventures to be had today if you just get out there.

D-Fact: The Detroit River isn’t actually a river. While it can be difficult to tell the difference, the Detroit River is actually a strait and not a river. A strait is a waterway that connects two larger bodies of water, and the Detroit River creates a passage between Lake Huron and Lake Erie.
