It is July 4th at 7pm on a Monday, and I am with my family walking along the Detroit Riverwalk beginning from the Joe Louis Arena and next to the Cobo center, where we parked. There were many cars lined up and parked along the street on Steve Yzerman Drive like us. There were many clouds but it was still fairly bright during this time. Immediately stepping on the Detroit Riverwalk, I feel a sense to see the view, people, and walk. I see families of various ethnic groups, Asians, Middle easterners, African Americans, and Caucasians strolling and sitting on the benches close to Joe Louis Arena and on the concrete edges on the left of the Riverwalk. The families are sitting together enjoying hot dogs and other fast foods, most likely from local shops nearby. Couples can be seen looking over the Detroit river that separates the U.S. and Canada, some are holding their loved ones closely, behind the metal railings beside the river. I imagine they were looking at the buildings across the river, such as the Caesar Casinos, lit up in bright red to attract visitors. The Ambassador bridge connecting the countries can be seen to the right of the Riverwalk facing the river, and ships and yachts can be seen cruising along. While walking, the metro train above that travels around the city may come by every now and then, and pillars can be seen holding it above and anyone on the Riverwalk can see and hear it pass by. The river’s mini waves swish back and forth on occasion, and little fish can sometimes be seen poking and jumping out every now and then. The Riverwalk has trees lined up on our left and a red emergency telephone booth on the right, going further down there is the Detroit Princess ship. The Detroit Princess ship is a large ship tied down to it’s docking area. On this day at this time however it was closed and no activity was seen in the ship. I see people taking pictures everywhere along the Riverwalk, such as the middle aged Asian woman with a selfie stick taking photos. I sat down for a while on the black Benches in front of the Cobo center and heard various conversations taking place, such as two older black gentlemen in relaxing and leisure clothing complaining about a certain yacht cruising by. The two older men thought the young people on the Yacht were “just showing off” mentioning how many times they have seen them cruising back and forth , and then a women nearby in a laughing manner says “did he just dab”, referring to the young man on the yacht raising his hand and pointing in one direction and looking down into his shoulder for a short moment. The “dab” trend has indeed been popular among the younger generations, and the selfie stick can be seen to have a use for some people. The Riverwalk is a urban area, with lots of buildings everywhere. To the left after the Cobo center and the Detroit princes, the Hart Plaza can be seen from the Riverwalk. There are a few people sitting along a set of stairs and looking all around and seems to be relaxing. The GM building can be seen further in the distance on the left. The Riverwalk is a place that people can go to enjoy the view and breath in the clean air. At around 7:41 p.m., there were little drops of rain, and I see no one brought an umbrella, not us or the Riverwalk people. It was time for us to leave after that.
