Youthful adventure   Leave a comment

As two very young teen runaways from home, we entered the US surreptitiously in the 1950’s, and soon wrongly figured we must return to Canada similarly.  Eventually traveling from San Francisco California by Greyhound, we arrived in Detroit Michigan, then trusted a taxi driver to take us to a low-cost hotel.

The next day we walked, and walked, to reach the Detroit river, and borrowed a row boat.  Paddling quietly in a dark and moonless night we passed under the Belle Isle park foot bridge.  Somehow we crossed the river and arrived back on a Canadian shore without incident,  How fortunate was that!? Just another ill-advised youthful adventure remembered decades later.
