Nature's suminigashi

We have been back 2 weeks now. Unfortunately I got caught up in the American version of Game of Thrones - our current political nightmare. If I have one hair on my head left it will be amazing.

I try hard to remember our adventure. We traveled 7,108 miles, visited 13 states and collected 8 capitols. We saw some beautiful parks and rocks and sights. Nature out did herself in Tahquamenon Fall in Michigan. I loved the falls....

But the designs created by the tannin foams were equally beautiful and delightful...

We rented a flat bottom boat. It was hard to contain my delight. 

We looked like a whirly gig twisting and turning to get each shot. 


And then it got thicker.... 


A bit like the foam on a mocha latte. 
It was amazing. 
Nature's version of suminagashi. 
And me without any paper to dip! Dang!


  1. Thank you for the inspiration your blog provides to this still gawky retiree bookartist! Lovely,Jan.

  2. Thanks for your comment. Even with running... it is one foot at a time. Thankfully, speed is no longer on the list for us retirees.

  3. I can see why you loved this....what a wonderful vacation. Those swirls are beautiful!

  4. yes, if I could I would be paddling around there still trying to capture each and every unique pattern.
