Frozen Grand Marais Bay and Shoreline -- Post 1

For the first time in years, thanks to the new break wall, we have a frozen surface on our bay.  When I drove to town yesterday, I was amazed at how many ice fishing shanties have sprung up on the bay.  Since it was so warm yesterday with temperatures in the mid to upper 30s, some of the fishermen were just out in the elements.

There was a layer of fog hanging over the bay, as well as over town.

Then I drove out to the end of Coast Guard Point.  Here is a picture of the new break wall.  Due to winds from the north, the channel and even the section of the bay next to the break wall are not yet frozen.

The lighthouse at the end of the north pier is now completely ice covered.

The lighthouse on the south end of the pier is not.
