what i did on my summer vacation, part three

what i did on my summer vacation: enjoyed the sunshine!

...on the beach in mackinaw city - note the sandy fingers.

...and on the bay in grand marais on the upper peninsula...after a picnic!

...and at a rest stop near st. ignace - this is all hidden down a path and through some trees.

...and at a golf course, where i played my first real golf!

...watching the seagulls fly.

...and watching the swans dunk their graceful necks into the water. these two swans were almost always looking for food, and one of their beaks was almost always submerged!

...a duck even stopped by to visit us one afternoon.

It was so cold at times, but every day was beautiful.

Love the duck!

Well, Julie, I am still a bit jealous of your wonderful getaway! Just seeing all the beautiful things you were surrounded by, the cold wouldn't have bothered me either.

I am glad you had fun and took the pictures so you could share with us.

And, by the way, I am liking the daily blogging you are doing! I get so excited when I see that you have done a new post!

Can wait to get home and soak up some of your creativity and we will definitely do some craftiness and I can cook you anything you want!
