my dearest and I parked and visited for the first time.
than a drive by glance can capture.
We will not pass by again without visiting.
It was moving, spiritual and an amazing experience for us both.
My admiration for this place has increased, it is a treasure and a gift, and right on Lake Michigan.
Just one lonely sailboat, one surfer and my eagle eyed darling saw another boat way out in the choppy water. The water temperature was 55 and the air temp was about 39 degrees.
As you can see we had the beach to ourselves.
That close to God feeling I had starts in nature, and the Lake restores me.
Some vintage textiles.An accidental rummage sale, meaning we accidentally ran into one in our Saturday travels.
Shopping is not my idea of having fun, but when your baby boy asks you out, YOU GO!
It was a nice experience. Mike picked out many nice things, and many of the companies gave out gifts to the bride and groom. The lovely lady that took us around thought I deserved a few gifts too.
I came home with some loot... a paring knife, a whisk, serving spoon and ice cream scoop plus sweet memories of spending time with my baby boy. (Pssst..he's gonna be 33 next week.O M Goodness!)
I received these Hollyhock seeds from my new friend Mary. We met in the summer during our visit to the UP of Michigan, and I asked for seeds within the first five minutes of meeting her. I had purchased a card she photographed with Hollyhocks on it, and she said the flowers were hers. I apologized later, I really have a hard time asking for things, (except more grandchildren;-) but I must have felt instantly comfortable to ask. Anyway, thanks Mary. Looking forward to seeing Mary again next summer, and having a garden of amazing Hollyhocks too.
Thank you for stopping by and for your friendship and kindness.
Enjoy this beautiful day.
