On the Beach

We spent a day on our beach enjoying the sun and the water. Although the water was in the upper 60's, we had fun playing. On this particular day, the water was calm. Isaac had just gotten a new boogie board, and was anxious to try it out.

Boogie all day long...

The sandbar was close on this particular day, the second sandbar was not a lot farther, but we did not go out to it on this day. Isaac spent much of the day in the lake, wishing for some whitecaps. Waves were less than a foot all day.

We went down to the beach early, and brought stuff for lunch. We made a fire and cooked hotdogs. We spent about four hours on the beach altogether and decided we had had enough sun for the afternoon. We had planned to return and cook dinner on the beach after spending some time out of the sun.


The Lighthouse

One of our favorite places is downtown St. Joseph, Michigan. We enjoy spending summer days at the beach, or strolling through the downtown area. The lighthouse at sunsetOn this particular day, we decided to go into town to see the sunset from the pier rather than from 'our beach'.

We had spent the day at our beach, including cooking hot dogs for lunch, and had planned to go back and have a fire and watch the sunset. We just thought the drive into town would be fun. It is just a short ride from the house.

The sunset was very nice, not the whole sky turned to fire that we were hoping for, but a nice sunset none-the-less. It was a warm summer day, and the sun stays up late in this part of the country. This picture was taken at about 9:20, it is still dusk until after 10PM.
