Fabulous Waves against the Presque Isle breakwater!
Anyone who comes to
visit Presque Isle.
It is a peninsula that sticks out into beautiful Lake Superior.
I am fortunate to live about 35 miles from there.
I graduated from Northern Michigan University and every student that goes there
holds Presque Isle's beauty in their heart forever.
Last week, I drove there after a Doctor's appointment that my daughter had
and we were thrilled to see huge waves hitting the breakwater and lighthouse there.
I decided that I HAD to take a video of it for you to see.
You could literally feel the powerful pulse of that huge great lake.
I hope the video gave you a glimpse of the power of the waves that day...
this is NOT an ocean, it is a lake!
If you know the song of the Edmund Fitzgerald that sunk on Lake Superior, you can just imagine the horror of the men that perished there...and that was in NOVEMBER with temperatures in the 30's with icy winds.
They say Lake Superior never gives up her dead.
It is, sadly, often the case.
But its beauty is awesome and admired by those that live by it and those that visit it.
My wish is that you can do so someday if you have never seen it.
