Detroit Trek

Yesterday, the pontoon pirates took to space. After an unsuccessful fishing cruise in the morning with John we had lunch. While we ate we watched an episode of Star Trek so that we could get to know the program and the characters. And then we went to the Star Trek exhibit at the Science Museum in Detroit.

We had so much fun on the Enterprise, but, we have no picutres because it is against Star Fleat rules to take picutres there.

The things we liked most were the Bridge, the Transporter, and costumes, the captains chairs, and the whole thing.

After the Star Trek exhibit we went into the rest of the museum while we waited for the IMAX movie to start. Here are some pictures of what we did there.

Henry on a gantry crane.

Malcolm driving a car that trains people to drive more safely.

Fun with static electricity.

If you look closely you will see a vortex in the center of this display, a sort of small tornadoe.

Here, Malcolm is posing with some couch potatoes, an exhibit about how to stay activie, excersise more. When we got home, however, it was Henry who became a couch potatoe for the night.

  1. I hope you all had better luck with the fishing today than we had on Sunday. I know the really big bass is out there somewhere, waiting for you.
