Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Ebb and Flow

thanks to Amanda for hosting this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge

Ebb and flow is all about water for me. This year the water levels seem to be up everywhere. Earlier in the week I drove north to visit my daughter and her family at Sparrow Lake. Not sure how much the water has risen here but there are signs that it is higher.P1070750
