Iceberg, Right Ahead!

Yesterday, my husband and I went down to our local beach off Lake Superior. Yes, northern Minnesota has a beach! I told you there was an island feel to the area. Last summer, we enjoyed going there to watch the sunset. We would sit in the sand and watch the waves ever so gently come in as the sky and water changed magnificent shades of blue, purple, pink, and orange. It was so beautiful and peaceful.

However, yesterday was different. Some friends of ours told us we had to check out the iceberg, at least that’s what we are calling it, at the beach. We have never seen anything like it. And according to our friends, this was a rare sighting. It was amazing. You could see where the waves came in and froze from some of the windy days we have had recently. I particularly thought it was interesting how the sand and ice/snow mixed. Once again, the photos are taken with our phones’ cameras, so they do not do the sight justice. Enjoy!
