The sunsets are lovely over Lake Michigan. Last night just after the sun went down we could see Venus, Mercury and Saturn in the nw. They formed a triangle in the evening sky and then a dark cloud covered the planets.
I painted this picture of the pier in Grand Haven a few years ago. Now the tree is gone and the pier, battered by the lake's powerful waves, is showing its age. The light still shines at night but the fog horn no longer blows its mournful sound. People use other navigation systems now. Nothing stays the same.
