Dear friends of ours who moved out of state came back to Michigan for a visit. We arranged to meet in Detroit for good times and good food. One of our favorite places to visit is Greektown. And one of our favorite places to eat at while visiting this historic neighborhood is the Pegasus restaurant. We always order saganaki so we can hear the waiter proclaim, "Opa!".
After stuffing ourselves with tasty Greek cuisine, we headed down the street to pick out a sweet treat for dessert.
We then boarded the PeopleMover and took it to the waterfront. Situated there is the Renaissance Center and a lovely riverwalk.
We were saying that we always wondered what it would be like to go to the top of the RenCen and look around the city. Well, you will never know unless you try it. So we did!
This was taken in the elevator on our way to the top. Our ears were actually popping! There is an upscale restaurant situated there, and they were kind enough to let our motley crew in for a round of soft drinks.
We were typical tourists with our cameras, taking pictures of the spectacular view. Unfortunately, the pictures did not turn out the greatest. :-( But this one is one of my favorites:
Sadly, we had to part ways with our friends and head home. As we wound our way out of the city, I could not help but think that despite the depressing headlines there are some gems to be found in the heart of Detroit. Sometimes you just have to dig a little deeper to find it.
Thanks for looking in!
