The USCG Mobile Bay broke the ice into Marquette’s Lower Harbor this weekend. The sun glittered on the fresh cut ice. I was surprised to see how thick the ice was 4-8 inches. I guess last weekend’s Ice fisherman were safe afterall. Whew!

This is a sure sign of spring’s coming! The Great Lakes shipping season will soon be underway.

Wednesday was my day off and luckily it was one that fulfilled all areas of my life–I was needing that. I was able to take the last digital captures, up in Ishpeming, needed for a project that can now be invoiced. I wrote my column for Health and Happiness. I was able to organize my thoughts for the Wealthy Spirit group. And I got to take photos for me, ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. And soak up some sun on a day that wasn’t below zero.

I heard whale songs, the sound came from under the ice, the hum. The chant. Followed by the sound of crackling as ice froze. Of course I believe in fantasy. But if you heard the song…you too would have watched for whales.
