Incredible Carnelian Lake Superior Sunset

My niece, Robyn, and her husband, Tim, are up for a visit.  They had a beach fire last night so I decided to take time out from making art and joined them for a little while on the beach near First Creek.  I am so glad I did.  There were puffs of fog that formed over the lake that lit up like carnelian agates. 

But first, here are some photos I took in the morning, also from First Creek.  I conducted an agate class with a wonderful group of people.  We were glad that it was not raining since the previous day we received several inches of rain.  I don't know exactly how much Grand Marais received, but McMillian had over six inches.  If all that precipitation were snow, we would have received over 60 inches of snow!

I couldn't decide which photos to include, so I just included them all.

See the freighter?
