Lower Taquamenon Falls
A freighter taking refuge in Whitefish Bay as a big storm was brewing out on Lake Superior.
Beautiful variety of Autumn colors
A blaze of fire along the highway
A peaceful park lane
Along a country road
The locks at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan and Ontario, Canada. The locks are only around 1000 feet long and all 'naturally' operated. As a ship pulls into the lower lock and the gates are closed, the weight of the ship causes the water to rise up to lake level. The gates open, and the ship goes on its way.
I also had the opportunity to meet two wonderful long-time blog friends.
That was one of the highlights of our trip.
LOVE these ladies!
Since arriving home I'm no longer doing the daily care for my two grandsons. Their other grandma is here for an extended visit thru the holidays, possibly permanently. So...with Dear Hubby's blessing and encouragement...I have begun seriously working on a novel. It's been my lifelong dream to be a writer and Dear Hubby has the confidence in me to believe I can achieve that.
Time will tell.
In the meantime, I don't know how often I'll stop here to catch up. I'm writing for hours every day and it's sucking me emotionally dry. So much of it is fiction...but there's a good dose of reality thrown in and it's not easy to dredge up and rehash old things. I've been asked by a lot of people for years to write my life story and I'm attempting that in a roundabout way. I don't know where it's headed. I don't know where it will end up. But I do believe I'm letting go of a lot of ghosts who have haunted me for way too many years.
