Ok so it was time to take the boys to school this morning, picking up other boys along the way.
As we made our way around the corner by the old ‘Mix’s Service’ and across Betsie Bay, we spotted…..I spotted the most beautiful sunrise.
Of course with all the snow on the side of the roads, it is difficult to just pull over and take pictures. After all 15 minutes before school starts is totally rush hour here in the area 🙂
I asked Marc to do it for me and he just looked at me like I was nuts. <—– Don’t comment on that, heehee.
So, no pictures of that, but coming home I turned right onto 668- the shortest highway in Michigan- and drove to Elberta’s Waterfront Park. There I could take some pics. Nothing as spectacular as what I saw earlier, still nice though.
The clouds were pretty cool too.
Then I drove out of the park and home again. I thought the ramshackle cottages on that road looked nice in that light this morning as well, so I took these pics to let you see It seems to me like some of them have had a little work done.
Don’t you just love the one in the foreground? It reminds me of that house on Grace Road.
Have a good day everyone 🙂
Yesterday the weather was spectacular.
It wasn’t too cold, the sun was shining off and on, it snowed and the wind blew snow every which way.
Swirls of snow across the bay made me stop and take pictures.
I don’t think I did a very good job though. Another interesting thing was seeing all the shanties already in the bay,
plopped down on what looked like they were floating on small shards of ice in the water
Looking from the Library across the bay and towards the Betsie River
This is the view from Main Street towards the Library and left across the bay to Elberta and
as you can see, they are already pushing the snow in place for the snowmobile races for
Shiver by the River
taking place in February
The next three pictures were taken from the Elberta side of the bay, aprox. 20 seconds apart.
This last picture is taken alongside Furnace Ave. in Elberta,
