Instead of receiving the predicted blizzard on the North Shore last week, we were visited by the Gales of March on Lake Superior.  The picture of our Great Lake was magnificent, painted with dark blue, green and sometimes brown.  The waves came crashing in with an enormous white cap topping. To add to this beautiful and surreal scenario, was the magnificent artistry of ice sculptures found on rock ledges and cliffs. This scene, I am certain, can only be created by Mother Nature herself. Watching the waves on the shores made me daydream about the tales of Lake Superior.  My speculations are that if Lake Superior could talk, the stories would fill the Lake itself.  Lake Superior was named Gichigami by the Ojibwe for ‘big water’ and is the largest freshwater lake in the world by surface area.  It is truly the greatest of the Great Lakes measuring to be the largest, deepest and coldest of the five with an average temperature of 40 degrees in the summer (brrrrr!).  The best part about Lake Superior is that it is ‘right out the back door’  and for miles and miles and miles! -Cindy
