An Evening In Port Huron, Michigan



Blue Water Bridge at the mouth of
St. Clair River and Lake Huron
connects Port Huron, Michigan in the U.S.
to Sarnia, Ontario in Canada
The Great Lakes Basin
This gives an idea of how Lake Huron
fits within the configuration of the Great Lakes 

St. Clair River on a cold and 
drizzly day in April



Casino across the St. Clair River
 in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada


A Canadian cargo ship makes its way
from the St. Clair River to Lake Huron


It's the Manitowoc

Statue of Thomas Alva Edison  
at the base of the Blue Water Bridge
Thomas Edison spent his boyhood in
Port Huron, Michigan


The Thomas Edison Inn & Restaurant


There's a cute little antique railway station
turned Museum called
the Thomas Edison Depot Museum
to the right/north of the Thomas Edison Inn
And today's train tracks
running right in front of it



Note the Canadian & U.S. flags and
the Grand Trunk (GT) Railway which is now
known as Canadian National (CN) Railway

The graffiti on the rear wagons
was pretty spectacular
                                 

We had dinner at Cracker Barrel before making the hour-long drive back home
