Scavenger Hunt at the Beach

I Love, Love, Love, Love going to the beach!  We went for the first time this week, on the first sunny day and  we had high temps in the 50s!!!  I know, I know, let's rejoice in the small things!  The girls actually waded in chilly Lake Michigan, and I got a few fun photos, even with several sets of dead batteries!  Mav enjoyed the crashing sound of the waves and the gentle breeze on his face.  Of course, he stayed nice and dry tucked into the back pack.  I can only imagine the trouble he will get into on our real beach days!

Joining the Scavenger Hunt this week, this is my favorite piece of architecture.  I have taken pictures of it in every season.  I'm so glad to live only a few miles away.  I actually feel guilty in the summer if we don't go to the beach at least once a week--it's really my responsibility to fulfill since I live so close, right?

This is a shot called "rimmed with light".  I admit it's from a few years ago, as sunshine has been a precious limited quantity lately, and I haven't been able to catch it just right this week.  This is from a Bed and Breakfast Tim and I stayed at called "The Shack".  Very cute and quaint.

Here's to "Toes or Feet"!  Makenna's are way cuter than they are buried in mud from the channel.

Here's to my "Favorite"...I decided to show you my favorite book of the year!  God is using this book to change my life.  Even the cover is beautiful!
Shade?  Shades?  Shadow?  take your pick!  Above is me with Mav and Makenna at the beach.  Sportin' shades, as always in the sun.  The sun bothers my eyes and headaches so much more now as an adult.  If you were to look very closely, you could see a red ladybug on my hip.  Just thought you might like to know.

Below, is a leaf floating in the channel out to sea (the Big Lake) and I found the shadow that followed it down the stream was so interesting.

Love the pictures. And I saw the ladybug before I read the description and knew what it was. Hooray for me.

I love the lighthouse shot, it's gorgeous.
