The coast in this case is the Mother Lake, that is: Lake Superior. Great view from Crisp Point Lighthouse.
We worked our way east from there. This is Little Lake, which is a little lake, quite round, right next to Superior, with a short connecting waterway that cuts through a dune. Little Lake was and is a safety harbor for small boats that faced bad weather. I was surprised to see the diversity of plants in shallow water from the dock. Two loons noted our arrival from close to shore, working their way farther out as we hung around.
Next stop: mouth of the Two-Hearted River. That’s it in the foreground, with Superior behind the sand and stone.
The Two-Hearted water is tinted by its time in cedar swamps in the upper catchment. It is not dirty.
