With the winter temperatures cold and freezing, that's exactly what you'll find on the shores of Lake Superior this time of year…lots of cold and freezing. Brenda Leigh found just that recently when she decided to explore the shores near her home in Brimley and this is what she had to say about her adventure that day:

It was a cold, beautiful day. The shoreline was ice covered and the water was splashing, forming blow holes while I watched. There were some ice bowls loaded with water along the shoreline, too....they were really cool. I wanted to go down and get closer to them but was afraid of not knowing how slippery it was down there. Funny what great things one finds in nature.... Ice Bowl Bath Tub.

I for one, am glad you didn't get closer to the ice bowls, Brenda, wouldn't want you to have gotten yourself or your camera wet. Thanks for braving the cold for all of us to enjoy your adventure without having to put our long johns on.

That third pic looks like a row of Krispy Kremes coming down the conveyor belt! Is the light lit for our freebies? lol Thanks for taking us along, Brenda. Merry Christmas, everyone! JITRFTS

Thanks, Brenda, for letting us go with you without freezing our toes off. The freighter is awesome!
We have a new snow cover this morning with a 16-degree temp....but the sun is shining!:)

Thank you so much for my 'fix' of UP and Superior. Brenda forgive me for being a doting old lady but please be careful on your expeditions! For someone who's had her share of falls...please be careful walking in that beauty. I'd hate to have something happen to you. At least have a cell phone available. God bless you for all your sharing and looking forward to 2014 for more.

Peace on Earth, goodwill towards all.
