We had a unique experience this weekend. Last April they closed down a stretch of I-96 near us. After a summer of angst, they opened the freeway (early yay!) this morning. Before they did, yesterday, they opened a small section of the freeway for people to walk down. Boy, did they. Not only walking but also running, biking, unicycling, skating, skateboarding, strollering, and just about any other form of non-moterized travel. There was even a marching band. It was so much fun. A great, free, once in a lifetime family field trip.
This is my favorite picture
and if we look just to the right it looked like this:
