First break from a long winter along Good Harbor Bay.
20 feet of ice melted in 48 hours, slabs on the shore remain.
Two dead cormorants, two gulls, 1 goldeneye and one dead deer lay camouflaged half encased in frozen layers of ice and sand ass eaten on the shore along with three half whitefish lie as Raven’s dinner during the day and Coyotes by night. The winter has been hard on us all.
Thick, bulbous, algae chokes the shore in some points as far as 50 feet out thickening the lake, subduing the waves with a green sheen. The whole day without seeing another person, they alage may keep them away.
One good thing about Zebra Mussels is walking through their broken shells barefoot, a sensation that you can fully experience without your eyesight.
