Lake Huron, Port Austin - "The Earth is the Lord's"

 The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it.  Th world and all its people belong to him.  For he laid the earth's foundation on the seas and built it on the ocean depths.

Psalm 24:1-2

Lake Huron - Finding Your Good Way


Thus says the LORD:  "Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls."

Jeremiah 6:16 ESB

Lake Huron - "I Will Wade Out"

I Will Wade Out
By E,E, Cummings

i will wade out
                    till my thighs are steeped in burning flowers
I will take the sun in my mouth
and leap into the ripe air
                                          with closed eyes
to dash against darkness
                                in the sleeping curves of my body
Shall enter fingers of smooth mastery
with chasteness of sea-girls
                                       Will i complete the mystery
                                        of my flesh
I will rise
              After a thousand years
           And set my teeth in the silver of the moon

"Ends of the Earth" Port Austin Harbor




These pictures are posted in sequence of my walk.  I love the aqua waters of Lake Huron against a endless horizon.  Located at the tip of the thumb of Michigan, Port Austin is know for fishing i.e. lake trout, walleye, yellow perch, smallmouth bass, brown trout, salmon and steelhead.  It was a quiet and rainy day with very few people at the pier.  One of the best walks for scenery if you enjoy walking to the "ends of the earth."

There is a band "Lord Huron" that named themselves after Lake Huron.  One of their songs is entitled "Ends of the Earth"

"Oh, there's a river that winds on forever
I'm gonna see where it leads
Oh, there's a mountain that no man has mounted
I'm gonna stand on the peak"

Dusk a Colorful Spectrum at Port Austin

Dusk to early evening images of the beach at Port Austin on Lake Huron.  The lake was very still and slimmers like blue glass with very few waves.  Lake Huron is large and deep but totally different from an ocean with no tide and very little breeze. I understand that these great lakes can be treacherous in rough weather and storms and have such large waves that they can and have destroyed large freight cargo vessels. Peaceful images like these can be deceiving.
