Weekly Photo Challenge & Sunday Water Dragon Post~”Misty Morning”

Two posts with one image!  The theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge is “Near and Far”.   Jake’s Water Dragon Sunday Post theme is: “Morning”.  Today I decided to combine them.

This photo made me think of what mist on the moor might look like in Scotland or Ireland.

“I don’t ask for the meaning of the song of a bird or the rising of the sun on a misty morning. There they are, and they are beautiful.” ~Pete Hamill

“A misty morning does not signify a cloudy day.”~Proverb

This photo was taken from our hotel in Mackinaw City, looking across a bay and into the Straits of Mackinac.  Mackinac Island is to the left of the photo and a 20 minute ride by ferry.
Mackinaw City is located at the south end of the Mackinac Bridge, at the northern tip of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula.  (see my post from last week).    Despite the different spellings, both names (Mackinaw & Mackinac) are pronounced the same: “mack-in-aw”.

Compared to the slow pace of Mackinac Island, Mackinaw City is busy!  Souvenir shops, restaurants, tee shirt shops, motels and pasty shops abound.  Click here to find out about our yummy Michigan pastys…and the history behind them!   Click here to find out more about Mackinaw City.

Thanks for bearing with me on the double theme!

  1. Nice tranquil shot Judy. Morning images do tend convey a great sense of peace and quiet and the light is often better than any other time of day.
    I used to love Cornish pasties. A number of years ago, I use to visit south west England, “home” of the Cornish pasty on a regular basis and often ate “original” Cornish Pasties and drank the local cider. The pasties were the size of a dinner plate. A superb combination.

    • Oh yum! I love pasties. My mouth is watering just reading your comment! I wonder if they differ from the ones here? I suppose they are about the same: a meal in a crust, but the size of a dinner plate? Wow! Thanks, Jim!

    • Hi Gisela and Wolfgang….I found 4 of your comments in my spam. You may need to contact Word Press if this is happening too much with other blogs too.
      Thank you for your comments!

  2. A dreamy scene. The water, the island, the mist, everything just makes me wanna wish I was there experiencing the entire magical moment. Thanks Judy for sharing a joyful event with all of us. Have a great weekend.

    • Thank you, Island Traveler! I hope you do get a chance to visit! We were “Up North” in Traverse City, MI…another beautiful area in our state, this weekend. It’s on Lake Michigan in the lower peninsula. My husband grew up there. I may be able to post some photos someday! Now I need to get busy with your “Discovery” theme…and boy, am I behind in challenges this week!!! 😉

I'd love to hear from you~
