Leland Michigan's Safe Harbor

Can you see the silhouette of people in the distance? They are doing what is fondly called "walking on the rocks." 

The breakwater in Leland Harbor makes for a fun "after ice cream" walk for vacationers. When you've had a lovely dinner in town, you've peeked in all the shop windows and you still can't bear to let the day end, a "walk on the rocks" is a fun way for the sure-footed to watch the sun go down over the harbor.

I used to "walk on the rocks" with my dad all the time when I was around 10 years old.  A little fresh air and what seemed like a very adventurous route across the harbor made for some great memories.

Now when I look at the harbor, I see a beautiful place where time stands still.

What a beautiful photo Anne. The boats are really pretty. We have a similar breakwater of rocks at Glenelg in Adelaide - about 30 minutes drive from us. It is also a favourite spot for folks to walk.

Thank you. The water was like glass and the colors were so soft. The definition of serene...
