I love this huge tree  it has been so smoothed by sand, water and the elements of the weather ! I have always loved the look of drift wood !

                                                    I love the white caps from waves !

I took over 200 photos , not that hard to do with all this beauty ,fresh air, the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks and seagulls  calling out  ! 

We sat on the grassy hills  for a bit just to take it all in  . Cool breezes warm sun , crickets in the fields behind us , butterfly's flying all around   it was wonderful !

                         Papa ‘s photos will be posted here tomorrow !

                                      Until next time hope you all have a great day !

Just beautiful, I know why you want to go there. The photos are amazing. Brave Kayaker's. We have Lakes Michigan to our east and Superior to our north. And I know how conditions can change in a flash!!!
