Stone castles on the Bay

Posted on July 5, 2008


Early in the morning the shore is peaceful, the sky already bright blue and full of shining white clouds.  Miss Sadie, the Cowboy and I head off on our walk.  Something new is out there in the water.  Must investigate.

It’s – there are two!  Two stone castles rise from the depths of Grand Traverse Bay.

The beach is littered with sand castles, some elaborate, others minimalist – but stone castles . . .  They’re magical.  Clearly the spirit of Gaudi was here, piling Petoskey stones and granite into the sky.  I’m enchanted.
