There is something magical about a glass-calm winter’s day. It might not stay calm, but the reflection along the water becomes rather pronounced. I believe we are off to a “normal” (school-in-session) Monday.
Report by Jim These are shots from Sunday on the way up. Holland and the Big Red Lighthouse in the fog and surrounded by lake ice. Later, Grand Haven Lighthouse and port side beacon light. Thes are the first lighthouses I’ve been able to visit during the Winter and it was quite a thrill, if not hazardous walking.
Today, let’s talk about the infamous combination of snow and dirt, or “snirt,” which decorates our shorelines. You need both rain boots and ice spikes to walk around safely and stay dry. It’ll freeze again soon. Keep the spikes handy!

The shortest day… and not the nicest
Driving past Van’s Garage I noticed to my surprise that there were no cars or trucks parked in front or around. I quickly parked across the street and took this picture. A once in a lifetime chance.
A beautiful beginning to a sunshiny day!
