Welcome 2012 Ice Tree and the New Year!

A quick update for Ice Tree lovers... as of today, the 2012 tree is growing. It's not too sparkly yet, but give it a few icy days. It should be gorgeous by the weekend, just in time for the 42nd New Year's Eve Fun Run, and for the New Year's Day 3 pm champagne toast at the Detroit Boat Club. It's a great opportunity to see a grand old building.

I'm also excited to see what happens with the Belle Isle Conservancy in 2012!

We were delighted to see the ice tree is underway as well. On a visit today to observe the progress, we very nearly drowned our truck in the parking lot by the swimming area. People with smaller cars beware, it's deeper than it looks!

That's good to know! Too bad the kayak is packed away for the winter. Happy New Year to you and your family. Looks like you've been having fun in Detroit! (Suburban writes "Detroit is the New Hamptons", linked under See & Say Detroit at right, and she is very funny, which I admire)

Pity about the Kayak, but thank You for the undeserved praise!

The Isle Itself

If you're reading this from afar (or otherwise unfamiliar with the island park in the Detroit River between Windsor, Canada, and Detroit, designed by the same guy who brought you Central Park in NY), catch up here:
