These pictures were taken at the Detroit Metro Airport. This is a really neat fountain that we sat by while waiting (we arrived in Detroit around 3:00pm and our flight wasn't until 7:16pm). The water would "jump" about and I found it highly entertaining. There were also some real live birds that flew around inside and they would occasionally go up close to get a drink, but they were too fast for me to take and pictures.
I was also intrigued by this red tram that you could ride on to get you from gate to gate. It would just zippy on by all the time! I finally got this shot while it was waiting for some passengers to board. And I actually got to ride on it too!! We took it down to our gate since we were at 38 and needed to get to 6 - that would have taken us quite a while!!
This was a really big plane that I was hoping was ours (very wishful thinking on my part!). It does look lovely though doesn't it?? We actually flew on a seven-thirty-seven, which is very little compared to this!!
Now last night when we checked in, I realized that staying in my parents room with them was just not going to work. The hotel lists their room type as a suite, and I guess I had a different idea of what it was going to be. I was going to sleep on the pull out couch, but things just seemed a little to cramped for my liking. So instead, I got my own room for the week! I can honestly say that I'm thoroughly enjoying it! Last night they only had one available room, so I got to sleep in their double-king suite, and it was GORGEOUS!! What a treat!! Today I've been moved to my real room for the rest of the vacation and it is a single king suite like my parents, and it's actually very, very nice and more size appropriate for me. I took a few pictures, although they don't show how nice it really is:
Here's the super-soft and comfy bed!
This is my little sitting area - I'm blogging from the desk you can see in the left-hand corner there.
