HAVEN"T been able to visit too much lately we have had power troubles
around here on and off. A big storm came through and blew us out for awhile right at the time when we needed it most. SO HOT! Had to leave home to stay cool. That car felt so good and so did the stores! We are in for more I see, for the next few days I am just praying that it stays on this time!
WE are a state surrounded by water… makes it nice that we can go a few hours from home and get to a big lake, that is more like an ocean.( Well, I mean you can’t see the other side of it.) I don’t get there very often anymore..but I do remember the waves and the sunsets in the summertime. It is always cooler over there on the beach than here in the middle of the state. I know some people who go there for the summer and stay in cabins and just relax. A nice getaway. All the beaches are loaded these days, and during the weekends like this one the charge is 8$ a person to get in. Yep they charge nowdays on some of them. I like to find the remote places though..where no one is
One of my favorites is up north in the Upper Peninsula called PARADISE. My friend took me up there once and we had a great time..not many people up there either. Above is a picture of the beach at Paradise. It was taken from the old lighthouse built in 1904 that is still being used today. Nice to remember trips of the past especailly when the weather is hot and you would rather be where it is cooler.
I hope you all are staying cool in this heat too.!
