The Lake’s surface appeared as though a stage for the dancing moon light, accompanied by the gentle ripples pushed along by the steady summer breeze. It is late, and it is quiet and it is peaceful. Time here seems to slow, the only indication otherwise is the almost imperceptible climb of the moon higher and higher above the horizon.
Lake Superior is not really a sea but then again its very size makes it unique in almost every way. It is clear, deep, cold and expansive and its shoreline is among the most dramatic here in Minnesota, or almost anywhere. I am fortunate to have the Great Lake in my backyard, as I was to be here on this night.
