Lake Michigan Beachlife

Beach love ignited here, early in life.

I went from being a sunset girl, to a sunrise one.  Not that I often witness an actual sunrise … but life on an eastern coast is different than life on a western one.

A few scenes from a west coast beach life, swimming in fresh water and watching sunsets, these past few days.

Lake Michigan, my first love.  You were so warm and lovely this year!  77 degrees?  Who knew?  Last year you were 58 degrees, but I went in you, didn’t I?  I had to, just for bragging rights, but this year, oh your waters were so delicious. I spent three wonderful days swimming, being enveloped by your cool, fresh water, bobbing in your waves, swimming under water at the sandy bottom.  
See you next summer.

    How wonderful!

    The temp. change must have been dramatic. Perhaps the lake has had less precipitation, or maybe it's had less cloud cover.

    Either way, how nice. I love freshwater swimming. It's especially nice to not have to worry about alligators, snakes, and pesky hydrilla.

    Great pics of your east coast, and lake swimming… so refreshing, isn't it?

    And alittle scarey. Not being able to see through the blackness of the water…

    Glad you had a wonderful time on your vacation! Lake Michigan is beautiful and there's lots of little towns to explore…we are thinking of going next year!

    I was admiring the lake today, watching golf on tv. It's amazing how gorgeous the water is… at first glance I thought it was the Bahamas.
