I think there is just a hint of blue in this patch of ice. There is a serious amount of blue ice at the Straits of Mackinac this year. Lots of people have been posting pictures, the color there is so stunning. Margaret said she walked this route yesterday and the lake was calm, almost glassy. Not so today!
Wind and snow kept us moving right along! The Ludington lighthouse is visible in one of these next two pictures. Can you find it?
With the snow swirling through the air, the camera had trouble focusing. What I wanted to show you was the loose chunks of ice agitating along the edge. What you get is probably more realistic. Cold and blustery with snowflakes in your face!
We then walked some city streets. Margaret had a sore back, and I also have pulled a muscle or something. We might have walked two miles.
Then we went back to her house and... what else... worked on a puzzle. Title- Evening Meadow. We didn't finish, but we added a whole lot to the upper part, and a little to the lower part. There are horses and a barn in the middle. The real problem was that neither of us wanted to stop, but she had to go to dinner with her grandchildren, and I had to get home for a meeting.
I've known Margaret for years, but not very well. She was my editor for North Country Quest, and we got better acquainted. We have a lot in common. This could happen again! And the proof? Another horrible selfie.
In other news: I did some editing, and had a zoom event this evening.
