The beaches of Lake Michigan, especially farther north, are spectacular. Liz and I have walked several this week, enjoying the water, sand, light, stones and, of course, the company. I love being able to share the place with each other and, yet, also feeling how immense these grand spaces are.
Watching the light in the clear water, transformed by the surface and playing on the bottom, is endlessly fascinating. Many of the beaches have been a mix of sand and stone and bedrock, adding many layers to what happens.
