Water’s Edge – Lake Michigan

Decent beach. Quite a few pirates this time of year, though. *Hrmph*… tourists.

Mr. Gibbs: “Then, on the fourth day, he roped himself a couple of sea turtles, lashed ’em together and made a raft.”

Will Turner: “He roped a couple of sea turtles?”

Mr. Gibbs: “Aye. Sea turtles.”

Will Turner: “What did he use for rope?”

Captain Jack Sparrow: “Human hair. From my back.”

Cat’s Head Point

Cat’s Head Point was quiet…. surprisingly… quiet…

Charlie Kelly: “Hello! Charlie Kelly here… local business man and cat enthusiast. Is your cat making too much noise all the time? Is your cat constantly stomping around, driving you crazy? Is your cat clawing at your furniture? Think there’s no answer? You’re so stupid! There is! Kitten Mittens! Finally, there’s a elegant, comfortable mitten for cats. I couldn’t hear anything! Is your cat one-legged? Is your cat fat, skinny or an in-between? That doesn’t matter, ’cause one size fits all! Kitten Mittens… you’ll be smitten! So come on down to Paddy’s Pub… we’re the home of the original Kitten Mittens! Meeeeeeoooooow!”

Distances

My camera – she’s-a so ‘new’… but I like photos that look-a so old! Okay, my camera isn’t that new.  Still, its not like I’m loading wet plates into the thing (which would be so cool – I hope to explore all kinds of alternative photographic processes… someday). *sigh*

I digitally manipulated this shot quite a bit (trying to make it to read… older). If you’re like my wife, that crooked horizon probably irritates you a bit. I did straighten it… and try it at even sharper angles, but I ‘likes’ it this way, so this is how it stays *arms crossed defiantly over chest*. Good day, everyone – I’m off to row. Up-hill!
