Element: Water, Peninsula State Park, Wisconsin

It’s been too long since the last time I was out on the rocks of Lake Michigan. When hiking out here, the lake sounds like an echo of the ocean in a cove. Water drums beneath the rocks, and you can imagine that not far away is the ocean, except there isn’t the tang of salt air. For me, the shore of Lake Michigan holds all the elements in one — water, earth, air (gulls flying overhead), and the smell of campfires. I’m hoping when I get to go back next time, the drought and heatwave won’t have caused too much damage to my favorite woodlands.

The weather is too hot. It hit 107 °F (42°C) today. So far, the electric is holding. Fingers crossed. It’s too hot to knit. But tonight… tonight I’m looking at photos of the water from my holiday. Sigh. Love the curved horizon you see on the ocean sometimes.

We’ve been told the heat should break after Sunday. In the meantime, I’m going to sulk indoors, read my library books, play with paints and try to find some sorting to do.
