Saturday was Busy at Campus Martius Park

Today were had the unexpected but welcome visit from Bob from North Carolina. Bob plays petanque with Philippe Boets (owner of Petanque-America) all of the time and we talked about all things boule during our many games.

Afterwards, while taking a late lunch at the nearby Au Bon Pain we met up with Marc; Louis; George; and Miguel. They were touring around Detroit for the day and Joe and I were more than happy to host them in an enjoyable game of petanque.

While I was unable to make it on Saturday and, from the looks of the gear everyone was clothed in, it was a good thing, I did shoot down to both the Royal Oak piste and the CM piste on Sunday. It was a glorious afternoon, warm, sunny, not a cloud in the sky and....what?....nobody on the pistes!?! Mon Dieu!
O.K., so the RO piste is still very wet, spongey and could use a top dressing (Joe, will the City of RO assist with that?) the Campus Martius/Cadillac Square terrain was perfect. I hung in there until about 3:30 but.....
In any case, see you all soon.
