Oh, The Color of the Water...

...And a beautiful bridge. 

When the sun shines on Lakes Huron and Michigan 
the water turns gorgeous shades of blue. 

And since blue is my favorite color 
it is hard not to be smitten. 

These two gorgeous lakes meet each other under the Mackinac Bridge. 
Lake Michigan to the west and Lake Huron to the east. 


If you have heard Michigan's tourism slogan 'Pure Michigan' 
then these lakes define that slogan. 
Pure and gorgeous. 
I could gaze at the water for hours. 

And yes, I did pay $8 just to cross the bridge - 
Five miles of pure suspended beauty. 

Likely this was my only trip to this area, 
the photos will have to be the subject of my gazing now.

You couldn't go all that way, and NOT cross the bridge. It is a treat, except on windy days, then not so much. The water colors along so much of the coast is that magical blue. Love seeing your photos of my state on IG.
