Walks, Sea Gulls, Sun and Lake MI!! (also a recipe review)

AAAAhhhhhhh….back to summer rituals! Walking the boardwalk and the pier to the lighthouse everyday. Right now we are walking in the evenings right after dinner. But once Wayne is done with school, it becomes a morning ritual of starting the day, chatting and absorbing in nature and the presence of God. We are morning people…early morning people. We are usually down at the pier walking by 6:30 or 7:00 am. There is just something about starting the day with the sunshine on you, the sea gulls circling and squawking, the water sloshing against the pier and beach that just makes for a great start.

These are a few photos from our walk last evening. Do you see the sparkling water….it was just beautiful. Way out in the distance was the tour sailboat turning around and coming back into the pier. It is called the  “Wind Dancer” a charter sailboat that sails out of port 4 times a day. A 63 foot long sailboat that is just beautiful. (clicking on photos will enlarge them)




When summer hits, and school is out and the days hit warm temps this beach is PACKED with people, beach umbrella’s and kids running and swimming and digging in the sand! Already the campground is busy!

NOTE: on previous post I linked to a recipe on Ribs.  Dr. Pepper Ribs….I’m telling you, it was a hit with the family. YUMMY!!!  The only think I might not do next time and there will be a next time SOON, is leave out the peppers. I used a half can and still a bit spicy, but still VERY good! Tender too, fall-off-the-bone tender!!

  1. Beautiful. What town are the pictures from? I have a feeling that you, the Adlers and Solomons may all live pretty close together. Wouldn’t that be a hoot?

  2. Me again!

    I meant to put this with the other message I sent a few minutes ago, oh well. I am not a morning person, at all, but my husband lives for the morning. However, for me to get my workout completed everyday, I have to get up at 4:30 a.m. Sleeping until 6 or 6:30 a.m. would be wonderful. All winter I have a really fancy treadmill, Lifecycle, leg press, abductor/adductor machine and weights for workouts. As soon as the sun comes up early enough, it’s outdoors for me and the dogs. We can hike straight from our back door into the wilderness. Our property is surrounded by the National Forest so we’re lucky enough to have an assortment of trails. Hiking early is great to see our many wild animals, as well. We see gray & red fox, coyotes, bunnies, black bears, muletail deer, woodchucks, etc. When we put up our hidden wildlife camera, we also see lots of other things like mountain lions and bobcats. So early is not all bad!
