It is the first week of spring and the Lake Huron shoreline is snow covered. A bench facing White Rock Shoal and the mighty lake is deserted, waiting for warmer weather and visitors to the lake shore.
Shipping begins this week with the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway and the Welland Canal in Ontario. Ed and I haven't seen any freighters going past Cedar Bluff this week. Tonight, however, we did spot a Coast Guard ship, the buoy tender Hollyhock, stationed out of Port Huron, upbound around 7 p.m.
Readers of the blog know that I often use black and white photos. This one, while it appears to be black and white, is just what the camera recorded on a gray day in early spring in Michigan.
