limited by my own perception

Perception is everything. This is along Lake Shore Drive in Douglas, Michigan. We're looking out at Lake Michigan from a high vantage point. It's hard to discern where lake ends and sky begins because of the haze, or to even know there is a lake at all. This small gate opens onto a stair going down to the beach. If you didn't know, you might think it leads into thin air, nowhere. I mean, how often does that happen, that I assume one thing is true, only for lack of seeing what is really there? And you know, sometimes the way forward is down.
