A Walk along the Lake Michigan shore

It was a whole 32 degrees today!

Leone Park playground, and one of many people who come to sit by the lake and contemplate.

Looking northeast to Leone Beach. When the icy snow melts, the lake is about 30 feet closer.

Looking to the east. The snow/ice mounds are due to wave spray. The area can be quite treacherous when the North and East winds cause non-stop waves.

Looking to the southeast at Farwell Beach pier, about a half-mile downshore.

A local restaurant, closed until we get warmer days (maybe in June?).

The Loyola Park playground, at the lake end of Greenleaf Avenue.

Spring is scheduled to arrive in about 7 and a half weeks, isn't it?
