After Labor Day On the Lakeshore

Time to travel from the sands of Egypt to a far colder stretch of sand — about 50 or 60 degrees Fahrenheit colder.

Latifah is walking the beach on a post-Labor Day morning, when everyone has gone back south across the Mackinac Bridge1 to return to school or work from summer vacation. You can see the Lake there in the distance. And when I say “the Lake,” that’s exactly what I mean — not some hole in the ground, only a few miles wide and maybe fifty feet deep. She’s up near Marquette, on THE Lake, Lake Superior; the largest, widest, deepest, coldest and most unforgiving of the five Great Lakes. The water temp hangs in the fifties in the summertime, so a swim in Lake Superior is, shall we say, refreshing. This is the lake that sunk the Edmund Fitzgerald (more about her in the early part of November) in one of the mighty November “witch” storms that can swirl up over it in that storm-tossed month.

Superior, though, has other faces, of beauty both soft and majestic, and a simple walk on the shore on a quiet morning can reveal them to you. Latifah is walking here in a new combo from Vero Modero; the silk skirt caught my eye first, then the nice combination of red “wrapper,” perfect for a cool pre-fall morning. Wedges might have been better for walking in the sand than high-heel sandals, but hey, this is fashion!
