Brrrr it's cold here in Michigan! It was -17c yesterday morning when I got up. Next week the high is going to be 11c. That's a crazy swing of temperatures. We'll all be outside in our tee shirts thinking it's really warm.

No crafting today. I don't tend to do a lot of it at the weekend. We visited middle son yesterday. He's moved very close to Lake Michigan. We haven't explored there a lot but I found out there was a lighthouse there so we decided to stop by yesterday. Unfortunately the pier was closed that you walk along to get to the lighthouse. It was bloody cold anyway. I could only manage a few minutes outside before my fingers got really, really cold and I could barely hold on to the camera.

I did manage to get a few pics though. I bet this is beautiful in the summer. We will be visiting. I was sad that I couldn't get the other side of the lighthouse as last year I got some beautiful pictures of the icy side of another lighthouse. I'll have to see if I can drag up the pictures.



Some of the lake is frozen but it doesn't look like all of it is.


The ice build-up along the pier was interesting.


Wish it had been just a little warmer so I could have spent more time getting pictures!

  5. Thank you for visiting my blog and for your sweet comment on my hedgie card! I wanted to come over and see what you've been up to. Your photos are absolutely gorgeous! Wow, that lighthouse is beautiful and the ice build-up on the pier looks so cool! I get chills just looking at these photos. We have lots of lighthouses here (in Nova Scotia, Canada) but the government will no longer maintain them so various private groups have had to take them over. It was really sad to see them get so run-down, paint peeling, etc., but now most of them have been fixed up again. I enjoyed my visit here today!

  6. Wow your photos are truly amazing.... coming from a very warm spot I am fascinated with ice/snow. I can't even imagine how cold it is until you wrote you could only take a few photos before your fingers were freezing.
