Ice breaking up on the Keweenaw Bay
Yesterday morning in town–in between errands a’plenty–I noticed that the last of the ice on the bay was breaking up into jagged concentric circles and other patterned ice floes.
It was warm, about 60 degrees (16 C) in the early morning so I paused to take some pictures to show you.
Hope you enjoy the last glimpse of winter of our Keweenaw Bay. We hope it’s our last glimpse!
It breaks into thousands of floating icebergs
One can stare mesmerized for a long time at the patterned ice shapes
Four ducks swimming between the ice floes
Some of the ice floes look like modern art, don’t they?
Circular bowls of ice
Ice floes floating behind sheltered breakwall
Red bench before yonder breaking ice
Fisherman wades in
Another short-sleeved fella just enjoys the spring warmth while the ice melts…
