Weekend Staycation



This morning Mike asked if I wanted to watch the sun rise over Lake Michigan, so we headed to Kimmel Beach, which is about a 20 min. drive. The drive is so beautiful with all the trees changing colors and the drive along the road beside the beach is just breathtaking. It was, of course dark when we got there at 5:45 am, but by 7:00 am, the sun was almost up and it was so quiet being the only ones there and listening to the waves. I had brought some pop-tarts just in case we needed a snack, but we ended up feeding them to the seagulls. We had fun throwing pieces in the air and watching them in flight catching them. It was such a peaceful feeling walking along the beach and just giving God Praise. Great Therapy! It was like we had a mini vacation but close to home.

Now, my dear friend, THAT'S how to begin a beautiful, invigorating day! Your smile is just radiant... and the photos... divine! I was born in Michigan... Benton Harbor... and I spent many a perfect summer day as a kid swimming in Lake Michigan. My grandma owned a farm in Benton Harbor way back then... such wonderful memories for me. You made my day so much more beautiful, too. Thanks so very, very much!!

I love the sunrise. I feel very fortunate that the sun rises over the hills in front of my house around 7:30 - 8:00 a.m. So I get to sleep in a little and still be up to enjoy the most breathtaking sunrise from my porch.

I love your pictures!! I can imagine how beautiful it was in person. I really enjoyed Lake Michigan when I was there visiting Beth in August. I can't wait to come back!

Pretty pictures! Sometimes in our busy lives, we forget to stop and appreciate the beauties that sorround us. I better stop more often "to smell the roses". Very inspiring...
