    1. One of my favorite stops during the holidays is this downtown shopping/restaurant area that is decorated with a million lights. This shot was taken looking up at the storefront lights and the name and the store celebrate a Michigan State of Mind.πŸ™‚


    1. Thank you!πŸ™‚ Lake Michigan and Lake Superior are my favorites, but somehow the lakes are usually always calm when I’m there and I miss the big waves. There was a storm in October that produced over twenty foot waves on Lake Superior, I wish I had been there for that. I find the beaches and lakes to be as beautiful in winter as in summer and always love finding a deserted stretch of beach.πŸ™‚
