Seafoam Green

OK, technically it's lakefoam. But whoever heard of a color called lakefoam green?

After my speaking engagement today (which I think went well, but I suppose you should ask someone who had to listen), I had to drive through the beach. Lake Michigan is always full of surprises. You never quite know what it will look like on any given day. As I was approaching on Ludington Avenue, the lake is visible at the end of the street. I perked up when I saw how green it looked.

A long shot with the breakwall in the center of the picture makes it look like two different bodies of water, or perhaps snow in the foreground and water beyond. It's not quite that cold here yet. Actually it was sunny and nice today, but windy at the beach. Right at the horizon you can see a line of deep blue water.

Not too many seagulls hanging around today, but there are always a few.

And a picture of the lighthouse is almost a requirement. The wind was stirring up a lot of sand and pushing it toward shore.

A good weekend. I seem to have my energy back. Lots to do tomorrow!
