I often wonder what possesses people to drive on frozen lakes. They do it up in Maine a lot and there have been accidents where they punch through even with snowmobiles.

I love all the shots you have posted especially the one of the goose taking off.

The boat is a Canadian ice breaker on the St Clair River, The river is the boarder between US and Canada, Ice jams had the freighter traffic followed by an ice breaker escort, I didn't see any freighters this trip

That's a great shot of the goose taking off - peach of a shot.

Wondered about the ship, looked like it was either set for the winter or else an ice-breaker. Love the goose, they look so awkward when taking off. The ice on the pier pilings caused me to look twice - I've been looking at some of my own reflection pictures and that was my first thought. Then I realized that the ice was showing different water levels. Made me shiver, especially because I've spent the past couple of days being hot in a long sleeved shirt.

Thanks all, if you go through the ice you must pay to have the vehicle removed, and the insurance will not cover it.
