Cold and windy day! BRRRRR

This past week I have been having cabin fever, big time.
Not sure why as we haven't had lots of cold weather or snow to keep me inside.
But still that is how I felt since the start of the new year.
Thursday, The sun was shining so brillantly
We normally have cloudy days in the U.P.,
so to see the sun is a treat..
I decided that I wanted to head out to Lake Superior and take some pictures.
Well, I should have looked at the forecast as when I got out there it was

Cold and Windy!

Brrrrr was it cold...
My fingers were so cold that I was just about in tears, 
but I did get a few pictures taken.
They aren't the best as I was much too cold to do more then point and shoot,
and some are a bit blurry
But I think you see the coldness in the pictures...


No one was at the beach... Not sure why.


The shoreline... The waves are starting to make some snow volcanoes.





You could just hear the waves crashing against the shore 





























The Swings waiting for warmer days!



Lake Superior
 so beautiful and magnificent...
The sounds of the waves as they crash onto the shore
The quietness and peacefulness.
 Nature ~ God's Gift.

Even in winter it shows it beauty...
But BRRRR  such cold and  Cday!

  2. Interesting how a warm, sandy beach looks toasty and the same beach in winter can look bleak and frigid. Water can really make a photo show the weather of the season.
    My photo is from Grand Bend, ON.

    1. It can look totally different depending on the season and how windy the water is.

  3. I giggled at *no one on the beach ... not sure why*!!! Adore the first shot ... such a contrast with the red bench against the white. Sure looks cold and the water angry. Wonderful shots.

    1. Thanks for stopping by... I am glad that I made you giggle, I was chuckling as I was writing it. I love those red benches they have overlooking the water. Even in the summer they are a contrast to the green grass and blue water.

  5. Beautiful pictures! I know what you mean about the cold being so hard on the hands! That's something I don't like as I've aged! Lake Superior is magnificent! My Dad grew up in Calumet, Michigan. She's a big lake! I like the red bench- a punch of color is always welcome!

  6. Beautiful photos of Lake Superior! It does look cold. I have enjoyed Lake Superior's North Shore, South Shore and the UP of Michigan, but only in the summer and fall. I would love to get some photos of it with the snow.
    Thank you for your nice comment and for following me. I am following you now too.
    Looking forward to getting to know you.

    1. Thanks for stopping by and following... I love Lake Superior in all its glory... and am lucky enough to only have to drive 7 miles to the lake from our house. Even in the dead of winter it has its glory.

  7. What beautiful photos Marlys. I'm glad you braved the cold long enough to take these shots. I love the one with the red chairs against the snow. Definitely a place to be on a nice summer day rather than the dead of winter. Have a wonderful week. Pamela

    1. Thanks Pamela, I am sure if I would have realized how windy it was I wouldn't have gone done to the beach... But I do love it there and enjoyed the sounds of the waves for the few minutes I could stand it. Next time I will dress warmer.
