I've been watching the ice go out on the bay all week. It's been amazing how it has changed each day. Sometimes it looks like a little progress has been made, and then the next day, cold temperatures slow the thawing process.
Giant fissures formed throughout the ice field, and gave way to more and more open water. But I was surprised to see so much open water this evening as I drove along the bay. How did all the ice disappear so quickly?
I could see the shoreline was littered with small sand-covered islands and shards of ice, which looked like someone had smashed sheets of clear glass against the rocks.
I typically think of the sunset as occurring on the Lake side of the peninsula, but there was a pretty good show going on along the bay side too.
