A Day at the Beach

You'd think with all the lakes in Michigan, I'd make it to a beach more often, but then I remember that it's Michigan. For all I love about it, you can never really count on the weather. This past week, for instance, it has been quite cool. Come on, now, Mother Nature. We don't get that long of a summer, so could you please crank the heat up a bit? It is still July, after all! It does look like this week has some warmer weather in store, so I'll take it. Having said all that, I did finally get up to the beach at a friend's cabin recently. We had a lovely afternoon, and packed more than just sunblock for the trip!
