Yesterday, I lived the active life of a typical retiree. I was up at 6 am reading over my notes on the uses and abuses of the Great Lakes. Fifty kids from White Lake , Michigan were on their way to the Bay County Museum in Bay City, Michigan and I needed to try to make sure the trip was worth the effort.
I learned about the size of the Great Lakes, shipping on the lakes, stories about the lakes..it was great. When the kids came, they were great. We learned about lampreys ... invasive species, and any thing else I could think of. It was a great day.
