Nature walk and sail in Ada - 8/3/13

The day started out with a walk down Grand River Drive, where nature and cemetery intersect.
Later that evening we had the pleasure of sailing up and down the Thornapple River,
where we enjoyed pink champagne & pretzels with Ellen & Martin.
We viewed entrepreneurs, and fishermen,
and the effects of storms and erosion.
 We smoothly sailed under the bridge, viewed imposing staircases,
and the homes of the very wealthy.
Big names are here on the river - Pew, Huizenga, Grooters, Van Andel, DeVos - 
but nature is the real star and trumps money any day.
