We, the cheapskates, parked in the farthest advertised parking lot from the Detroit Tigers’ stadium. Paying $5 and walking a mile was preferable to spending $25 to park directly across from Comerica Park. I admire the architecture of old buildings, so I snapped several photos along our walk to the stadium.
Some of the buildings were seemingly abandoned.
Rebecca’s hat nearly fell off while craning her neck to peer at the tall buildings.
Our resident teenager didn’t want to pose by the tiger statue, but we compelled him nevertheless.
After the game, Dad drove around a bit, since the kids had never before been in downtown Detroit.
I captured these photos through the sunroof of my Pacifica.
These buildings are much higher than anything in our local cities.
I imagine the residents of Detroit chuckled at us gaping country folk.
The Renaissance Center
A glimpse of Ontario, Canada across the Detroit River.
Tons of traffic.
Grateful that we can return home to the peace of country life.
