One of my favorite things about Michigan is that we are surrounded by the Great Lakes. As a child, I lived in a small beach town and loved to spend every minute I could near the water. My love for water has not changed. Ha-ha, maybe that’s why I decided to join the Navy when I got out of high school?!?! Now that I’m back home, I can literally drive 20 minutes in three different directions and be at the lake.
Summer is almost in full swing and I know my days are short, so I take advantage of being outdoors when possible…I’ll finally see a summer breeze, blow away a winter storm… Sorry, I couldn’t help myself. #ThisIsWhatHappensWhenYouHaveKids #EverySongGetsStuckInYourHead.
Steve and I had a few hours without Sophie so we decided to drive to the lake and walk the break-wall. There is just something so tranquil about being near the water.
What is your favorite Summer activity? I have to ask this question because it was a great debate when I was in the Navy. Would you consider this a beach or a lake side park? I call it a beach (as does everyone else who lives around here), but some of my Navy friends argued that it’s not a beach because it doesn’t have salt water. I mean there’s water (you cannot see the other side), sand and waves. What else do you need? Is it a beach or a lake side park?
