No matter where you live, there is something unique about your area. When we lived in the Bay Area of California, we could be in San Fransisco in 45 minutes, be at the coast in under an hour, take a winding road through the Redwoods, or go to the mountains which were a little further away.
Here in Michigan, you don't have to travel far to get to *a* lake, and *the* Lake is never far away.
On Monday evening, we hopped in the car and drove to the lake. I will tell you, it took us a few years to truly enjoy being at the lake, and to stop comparing it to the ocean. But once we stopped lamenting about our ocean-less state, we started enjoying the lake. Funny how that works, isn't it?
Kevin went for a swim, can you see him?
while I stayed further back on a beach towel, enjoying the late afternoon sun, the seagulls overhead, and the sound of the waves. The Baby tried to eat the sand. ;-)
