In Mid April I found myself in Duluth at the Lift Bridge Canal with a break between the Annual Mining Symposium and its closing banquet at the posh Kitchigami Club on Superior Street. The sky was clear. The lake the deepest blue. Even with water temperature at freezing, the lake walk was enjoyable. No camera, but I found a pencil.


lift bridge canal ice
floating melting in the sun
sparkling white mid April

Duluth clear blue sky
natives run walk sit and smile
gulls announce their day

Now to return to Aitkin County, where lake ice is rapidly melting, and nearby loons are watching for their waterways.
