This is a picture taken of a wave crashing against the north pier at St. Joseph, MI last Wednesday, March 8 near sunset.  For the fact junkies out there, the wind blew 40 knots, gusting 60 from the west with a fetch of only 51nm.  The brown in the wave is sand pulled up from a depth of 20 feet.

The lighthouse seen is 57 feet high with a rear range light at 53 feet. The 36 foot tall front range and light at the end of the pier can not be seen.   Lake Michigan ain’t a place for wimpy sailors! – Anarchist Dirk.
