Sky Watch Friday



It is time for another Sky Watch Friday...and so far so good--no problems with blogger! These are more shots from the Great Lakes. The first is from the ferry that took us over to Mackinac Island...you can tell across the top of the picture that it is through a window. The other was taken as we walked up to Fort Mackinac.

If you want to join the fun and see the world, or if you just want to see the world and don't have anything you want to share at this time, go the Sky Watch Friday blog. The links open up at 2:30 p.m. here in my part of the country...in Indiana. Tom, IMAC, Sandy, Klaus, and Ivar are kind enough to run this for us, and I know I don't always say it, but I really do appreciate it.

Mackinac is such a beautiful place. I love so much of Michigan, I guess that is a good thing since I live here. Gorgeous pictures.

Both great pics. I just love the top one with the massed clouds and the lines of the little sail boat.
Like your massed effects of pumpkins below as well.

I l.o.v.e. that first shot. There's an air of solitude about it and the cloud formations are the icing.

Rose, these are very pretty. My sister is staying in Michigan this week in Duluth. They like to watch the ships and the lakes.
Funny, they don't watch the zillions we have coming and going here in Houston.
