Markers for Watercolors

 FEBRUARY 6 2014:  I am leaving for a trip to Lake Michigan for a long weekend with some friends.  I am taking a sketchbook and markers instead of my watercolors.  Quite a change for me.  I'm bringing my snow shoes to do some hiking, and I hope to see some nice sunrises too.  It is still below zero every morning, so I am now hoping for a February thaw.  I would write more, but I must get ready to go.
