On the shores of Lake Superior, with the ice receding daily, the deep blue of the water stands out even more. Of course that could have something to do with having had an abundance of white, surrounding us here UP North for so long. It's still quite cool by the Big Lake, but that didn't stop Kathy Jennings from heading out on the Gay-Lake Linden road for a glimpse of Superior, as it thaws from its icy coating. Looks like it won't be long and we'll be able to head out for a walk along the beach!

Quite an inviting picture, even if it is still cold!

Good morning, what a beautiful picture. I hated to give up my picture of the Portage LIft Bridge as my wallpaper, but how could I not change it after seeing this picture. The blue of the Superior water is just gorgeous.
Great picture Kathy.

From the looks of this beautiful picture, now would be the perfect time to enjoy a cool crisp walk on the shores of Lake Superior. No black flies to contend with, this time of year ;)

Brunette Park? I understand Oliver Brunette from Lake Linden groomed the roadside area until the county finally decided to make a park of the place.
The rocks are beautiful, sand is white, and water is clear.

It does look like Brunette Park. One of my favorite stops on the way to Copper Harbor. Great place for a picnic....and for walking the beach. Beautiful picture.Hope to be there this summer.

I was just about to say Check out the geyser on Airport Cam. :)

Great so see the CMX camera back on line. We'd always check that, to see what kind of weather was awaiting us on our drive back through, to Houghton ...

Could be Brunett Park, but it doesn't look very rocky. Did a lot of walking along that beach as my ex-inlaws have a cabin about a mile down the road from there. Where their cabin is, the sand is beautiful and there are not many rocks. But as you walk toward Brunett Park it gets rockier and rockier. Whatever though, the picture is great.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Wednesday, April 5, 2006 - 07:25 pm:

Davesou, Eva was my GRANDMOTHER, not my great-grandmother. How are we related? Is your last name Soumis? Is Connie your mom?

By Ken ja Mimi from da UP (Kenjamimi) on Wednesday, April 5, 2006 - 08:58 pm:

Is that a light or lighthouse way down the beach? Nice picture. 'eh?

By dave sou (Davesou) on Wednesday, April 5, 2006 - 10:39 pm:

Deb S .
Yes, Connie's my mom ...
