Silver City, Michigan, toward the western end of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Waves crashing on the log strewn beach and stormy clouds scuttling northeast and a red, red sun kept us on the beach for a long time. It was mid-September last year and this shot was taken about 8 pm.
Lake Superior is on our minds as Gene made final arrangements this week for our September trip, booking a room at the Straits View Motel in St. Ignace in order to break the trip to Shelter Bay into two days. We have not stayed here in long while because the rooms reeked of smoke, but new owners have redone the rooms and promise a less rancid smell. We will "dine" on pasties from Suzy's at a picnic table behind the motel and watch the Straits of Mackinac and THE Michigan bridge as we do. The trip to Shelter Bay can be done in one day, but it is a very long day as a result. It is close to seven hours to the bridge, the Mighty Mac, from Three Rivers. As you might have guessed, I photograph the bridge at every annual crossing, coming and going!
Hope you have the time to visit more skies of our world at Skywatch Friday.
