    Lake Michigan, USA - Sandra Zettel

My Watermark is the Straits of Mackinac of Lake Michigan.

As a child, my family and I would drive over the Mackinac Bridge and we would roll down the window and look through the grate of the bridge down to the water. I now share this tradition with my son, Ethan, who is eight years old. During the summer of 2017 we lived aboard our boat and harboured in the Escanaba Municipal Marina in Michigan. Again this summer was filled with amazing sunrises and sunsets and always the right amount of wind!

The photo included is a picture of our sailboat as we have passed underneath the bridge. The second picture is of my son with the bridge in the background.
