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!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Winter

This photo was taken shortly after sunrise, after a 10″ snowfall in November.

The woods, usually dank and dark, become illuminated with the increasing sunlight.  The sun brings warmth and love to our world.

“Hatred paralyses life; love releases it.  Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it.  Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.” 
~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Let us all follow the wisdom of the great Martin Luther King.  Let your love light shine onto others; give the gift of unconditional love and chase the darkness of hate away.  Hate does not belong in a world filled with love~ ❤
