Surprise Visit!

What was a pretty low-key week was interrupted with a surprise (but not really, they called ahead) visit from the Downs. Zack and Papa Downs were coming up for fishing at Lake St. Clair. I found out from coworkers that the lake is pretty renown for small mouth bass.

They arrived on Wednesday and left Saturday morning. I guess they drove up late Tuesday night (close to midnight) and just headed straight to the lake, then fished all day before heading to my house. That’s some dedication. I do not think I have that kind of fortitude anymore.

Although I didn’t see them much, we did reconvene at night. One night, I threw Zack into my Vive to give him a taste of VR. Other nights we played board games.

We went to grab ice cream one day after dinner, and I realized I’ve never had a banana split before. Another thing to add to my bucket list.


They left Saturday, but delayed their departure long enough to grab brunch with me. I found a pretty well-regarded brunch establishment called Omelette and Waffle Cafe. I would say it was one of the best omelettes I’ve had in my life. 10/10 would go there again, and I recommend you go there.


I hope to see them again soon. Until next time friends.

  1. However brief it is always interesting when we get a chance to spend time with you. Thanks for all the hospitality, and hopefully we’ll be able to do it again soon.

    1. Sad that I was so busy when you guys were here. I have just been surprising busy trying to make up for lost time with family and whatnot.
