(South Bend, Indiana) We took a delightful stroll Thursday afternoon along the Saint Joseph River. South Bend, of course, is named for the southern-most bend the river makes as it courses its way toward Lake Michigan in Saint Joseph, Michigan. So, if you ever find yourself in South Bend with some spare time, please follow in our footsteps along the placid Saint Joseph River.
We were careful not to fall in as there were no lifeguards on duty.
A sign of welcome.
Notre Dame has a handsome presence on the river.
This is where the rowing Irish launch.
Motivational message under a bridge.
Stone work along the river.
A river walk for railroad buffs.
Postcard from South Bend.
We saw plenty of birds on our walk, including these Tree Swallows.
The Song Sparrow is aptly named because it has a relatively complex song. I was able to tweet with this little guy. But it wouldn’t alight on my finger.
Back downtown where we started. And, we never fell in. Not even once.
