Early in the morning, Baltimore Harbor is quiet. Even the paddle boats are resting, with a slight bobbing motion now and then, all arranged in rows. They are waiting for the crowds to appear to take them for bumpy jaunts around the harbor. But for now, the paddle boats’ arrangement is peaceful.
There can be high winds off Lake Michigan in the winter. In Muskegon’s Pere Marquette beach area, the sand blows straight off the beach and into the yards of the homes across the road. I’ve seen the sand a foot or more deep in these yards. To help, Muskegon arranges snow fences in lines, rows and in grid patterns on the beach. This helps contain the sand.
For the last two years, we have walked the mighty Mackinac Bridge on Labor Day. The suspension bridge is five miles long and connects Upper Michigan to Lower Michigan. The bridge has many cables. There are huge tubular cables that run from the beginning of the bridge all the way up to the top of the towers. Coming down from those huge cables are narrower suspension cables that connect to hold the road in place. (you can tell I’m not an engineer!) Those cables are arranged in a particular sequence.
I apologize for the last photo’s blurriness. The bridge moves with so many people walking on it. Of course, that’s what suspension bridges are made to do…flex and move.
Thanks for visiting! I can arrange for another visit for you! lol 😉
Have a good evening.
