Looking South from Point Betsie Light

(Report by Jim)
I knew from the NOAA wind and wave forecast that today was going to be great for beach and cloud shots, so I headed south to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Point Betsie, Esch Road Beach, and Glen Arbor before getting back to have some Friday take out pizza from the Bluebird. The green shades below represent 6-9 foot waves. The whole afternoon was on and off snow squalls. You can see one of them coming in on one of the photos below. Quite bizarre for this time of year.

A little long exposure fun

I ran across this a couple of miles south of the crossover bridge at Glen Lake. I had driven past this road 100 times on M22 and never noticed it. I had to take it.

Pretty , but it looks uncomfortable.

Here, I thought that road was named after your family.
