Well, the water theme didn't work out last week. I'll come back at it again soon. The bird feeder is now a popular place in the neighborhood. Our most frequent visitors are sparrows but we get our share of finches and cardinals as well.

This week's theme is water. In spite of the 100+ degree temps we've been having this summer (including today) you can still find lots of images of cool refreshing water. This image was actually taken yesterday evening but I was just too tired to download it last night. Considerate it yesterday's submission for the purposes of this week's theme. The earth and crops are so dry that I'm told farmers are watering 24/7.

This evening wasn't just cloudy and threatening rain like yesterday. We actually got rain for about 20 minutes an hour or so before sunset. Yeah! We sure needed it. Once again I doubted if we'd see the sunset over the lake but we did. And with this photo my sunset theme for the week ends. I'm very pleased to have gotten pics for 7 straight days. What a beautiful summer we're having in Michigan!

I had my doubts about seeing a sunset this evening because of the rain clouds in the area. But I got lucky and was able to get a few pics. We didn't actually get any rain here but we could see it across the lake in the Chicago area.

Can you hear the roar of the sun kissed waves? It was quite a breezy evening at the lakeshore, refreshingly cool too. The was a moderate risk of rip currents today so understandably not many in the water. Water temp: 80F. :-)

It's Sunday night and the start of a new week. The theme for this week is, Lake Michigan Sunsets! The forecast is for a solid week of sunny days so hopefully I will get some great sunset pics. Here is this evening's sunset from Tiscornia Beach. There was a good wind and some great waves making for a nice dramatic picture. I love it! I might even print this one and frame it for my wall.

Only in St Joseph, the little town with lots of patriotism, will you find a red, white, and blue pirate. This one is standing guard at the corner of Elm and State Streets. He's just one of the collection of street art appearing around town.
