No stories today on this blog–only the stories that nature herself shares.
You, of course, may tell your own stories as you gaze at the photos.
You may find yourself transported to the south shore of Lake Superior. You may smell wildflowers and wonder if it will rain. You may whisper your dreams to the stone-woman of the lake. Perhaps they will soon come true. I have heard that if you stand by the shore and glimpse her…magic will happen.
Thank you for sending a piece and the peace of the Southern shore. I love the stones in any shape or form, but the stone woman of the lake is quite special.
**thanks, John**. I think you might see a man made of stones if you pause by just-the-right shore when you’re visiting.
Thank you for these. We were supposed to be there this week, but my husband lost his job earlier in the year. I love reading your blog, love the pics. It helps with the withdrawl…. I look forward to a better situation next year and being able to sink my own feet in the water. Thank you again. I do enjoy your blog immensely. 🙂
Brandie, I too wish for you a better more prosperous situation next year. I hope you will find your way to the shore of Lake Superior where you can dip your toes in clear cold waters. Thank you for reading the blog–your words helped me decide to keep posting pictures during the next month.
It’s almost like being there….
Dawn, if you close your eyes and click your heels together three times…
Nice self-portrait! Do you find any petoskey stones up in your area?
You think it’s me? Oh no, no, no. I am sure it’s Our Lady of the Stones, Michaela. I’m sure. LOL!
Oh I forgot to answer your question re petoskey stones. Nope, none up here along the southern shore of Lake Superior. Those are mostly on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan. Hope you find some one of these days!
Kathy – You make it so easy to understand the expression “one picture is worth a thousand words.” Daisies and sky and stones and clear waters. A smiling meditation to take myself to bed with. Lovely!
Attempting to embody that quote even more during the next month, Susan. Hope you slept well!
I like your photo-essay of a Lake Superior summer. I like the Lake Stone Woman – it would be fun to meet her.
I was kinda hoping the Stone Woman would whisper some more secrets, Barb. Perhaps next time she will…
Cold toes cold toes!!!! Claps with glee!
Elisa, I went for a walk this morning over behind the Pow Wow grounds and dipped the toes in. You could almost shriek with the freezing numbing waters. And kids are swimming in this now?
It’s how grape Popsicles are really made!
Lovely shots. Great atmosphere. Made me feel peaceful
Lynne, it would be fun to do an entire blog with simple, peaceful pictures, wouldn’t it? So that people might stop by and breathe “ahhhhhhhhh” and feel a little more relaxed.
“The ever changing, magnifiscent sky” — That photo is absolutely stunning!
The sky says thank you, Laurie. It likes its ever-changing self, it says. *smile*
🙂 back atcha!
Beautiful pictures, pretty flowers!!! keep rocking! 🙂
Thank you, Sonali, I hope the stone-woman whispered something special to you.
Beautiful pictures Kathy! The stone woman has appeared to me as well…ahhhh her whispers are so sweet and comforting. I yearn for the clear, cold water of the big blue lake, especially since the last few days of scorching temperatures!
What a thrill to hear you’ve met the stone woman, too! It has been so hot everywhere recently, hasn’t it? Yesterday finally cooled down for us–and today it’s practically arctic!
