A Tale of Two Beaches

Last weekend we took a drive. Actually, we got drive thru coffee and went to the lake, Lake Michigan, here in Holland to see what was left of the ice. Hasn't been a terribly cold winter so there wasn't much, but well, surprise fog. Couldn't see a thing.
Look closely to the right of the swings and you might just make out the lighthouse.

With the water being so high for the last few years, waves crash over this walkway. There is water on both sides. Still a lot of ice here, it had been magical a week earlier.

This was amazing, slush, solid ice, water. Just a gentle swirl today.

A few hours later we decided to drive a bit south, to South Haven. Same day, 4 hours later, believe it or not. Michigan. That's how it is. One thing one minute, another the next. Lots of ice here .

We are standing out on the pier. We didn't walk out too far because of not wearing good shoes for that sort of thing, walking in ice and snow that is.

This marina along the channel had thin sheets of ice in all the slips. It looked like stone tiles.

No boats.

Ice on the pier. and flat as glass water in the channel.

It really isn't safe to walk on the shelf ice. There could be cracks and holes you can't see that you could fall through and then be trapped under that ice....

No idea who these people are, I just liked their reflection in the water. Cool dog too.

Duck-she looks like she's standing on the water, but it's ice.
