Ugh. Got a case of the blues today. Sad for some reason. Don't have a lot of energy. Might have something to do with the fact that it's dreary and rainy. I did get up in my craft room and do a little crafting. Cheered me up a bit.

Today I'm sharing some photos from Sunday. These are from the lighthouse at St. Joseph in Michigan. It's a little lake town about 45minutes away from us. My son moved there about a year and a half ago when he got a job at the newspaper. Not a lot to do in the town. It's definitely an area that's a little more lively in the summer. We decided to stop there to see the lighthouse.

There was still some ice around.

Walked beneath the supports you see as the water on one side was quite choppy and was coming up over the path.

Quite a view from beneath the icicles.

This post looks like it's wrapped in plastic but it's actually covered in ice.

This one draped in ice mixed with sand.

 The top photo is of the light behind the lighthouse. The water was quite choppy. I couldn't look at it for long. It made my stomach churn and I felt quite sea sick! There are no barriers between the walkway and the water, just a drop. I clung onto hubby's hand and didn't let go! I felt quite brave walking along there. I made sure I kept closer to the other side where the water was a lot calmer!


  1. I am so sorry that you have had the blues Sharon.
    Hope you're feeling happier now....if not....I am sending you a hug.
    The weather has been foul here again today. It always starts off sunny in the morning and you get hopeful that it will be a dry day but it doesn't take long for the clouds to come rolling in.
    Your photos are just stunning.
    How very brave of you to go across that walkway....I would have screamed and ran the other way.
    Take care-x-

    1. Thanks for the hug!

      Ask my husband and he'll tell you I kept saying 'I'm going to be sick, I'm going to be sick' while gripping onto his arm with a death grip! Needless to say we walked pretty fast.

  2. Well hoping you are feeling better now - what fabulous icy shots, quite amazing!
    Happy Wednesday
