Day at the Beach

Today in Marquette, Michigan we were blessed with unseasonably warm weather, 81 degrees! I believe this is a new record for this day in the Upper Peninsula, the former record being 72 °F / 22 °C (1968).

I had been hoping for a cool day suitbale for a hike, rooting around in the garden and moving into an Autumnal Mode. But who am I to complain. Soon the Upper Peninsula will be covered in ice and snow, as in this photo taken as I walked around the Glacier Glide Art Show last winter.

The shot is of the sunset side of Presque Isle moving toward the Lombardi Poplar trees and stacks of the power plant in the Upper Harbor area. In the summer, this is the best beach for finding weathered pieces of beach glass. In the winter, as you round the point heading toward the parking lot, you are often hit with a blast of wind causing you to test your skills at walking back to wind in snow shoes.
