Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement

Definition of Movement: (1) “the act or process of moving; especially: change of place or position or posture (2): a particular instance or manner of moving.”
~Merriam-Webster Dictionary 

What I’m showing you today is the RESULT of movement.  The action (movement) has already occurred. 
What you see below is the RESULT of movement of water and sand.
When Lake Superior’s wave action recedes from the beach, pulling and drawing sand with the water,
it leaves behind sand “sculptures”, where water rushed around rocks.

a beach on Michigan’s U.P.’s Keweenaw Peninsula.

The result of movement of the sand and water is like Nature’s Artwork on the beach.  

The miniature sculptures are fun to find,

and they remind us of the strength and power of water.

Nature’s Artwork….

Safe Harbor

Good evening friends,

I love this little harbor.  This is Fayette Historic State Park’s harbor in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.  Fayette is a former townsite where pig iron was manufactured and then shipped to steel companies in the Great Lakes area. The town was bustling from 1867-1891.  Several homes in townsite have been restored, as well as the hotel, and a building describing the pig iron manufacturing business.  There are 19 buildings onsite in all.  There is a campground, a picnic area, and trails to walk alongside the harbor and Sand Bay in Lake Michigan.
