Waiting for Spring

Lately, it’s been difficult getting down an accurate view of Mackinac Island in its current state, as the weather in Michigan has been changing on almost a daily basis. When I got back from my spring vacation on Saturday, there was no snow at all on the island. The next morning, I woke up to a fresh blanket of snow that just kept coming down. Then Monday and Tuesday we were met with clear, sunny days and melting snow, leaving us once again with grass and clearer roads. I took a walk around downtown yesterday and Monday, and flashed a few photos with my new camera…

The water is clear and blue, a welcoming sign of spring for me!


Down at the marina, still lots of clear, blue water, with bits of snow on the docks.


It’s still cold enough for trees on the shoreline to be covered in ice


It is now Wednesday morning, and here I am looking out at another snowy front yard! When will mother nature make up her mind… anyway, this is a shorter blog than usual for me, but I’m sure there will be more in the near future as I play with this new camera of mine. Until next time…

      Hi Gary! I got a Samsung NX3300. I plan on using it for food photography, but find that it works great for some landscape and portrait photos as well.

    Thank you so much for sharing the pics, we so enjoy them. We love and miss the Island, and the postings gets us through until June, when we spend a couple of weeks, and then back in the fall for three or four weeks. Even then it’s still never enough.

    Thanks Heather! The clear water looks very inviting, although I have no doubt frigid. Counting the days until my first visit this season 🙂

    p.s. any new chapters of the book in the near future?
