August silver beach
Every year we visit Michigan for our summer trip; we arrived the other day just in time for a lovely sunset over Lake Michigan. The kids, of course, only meant to dip their feet in and ended up soaked; that's vacation!

Then there was a lot of enjoying the small lake with Grandpa and his boat.My childhood of artistic unpredictable income never included such a thing as a Boat, though we did take canoe trips once a year, which I loved.  Now that I'm grown up, speed faster than a person running generally pushes my nervous button, so I'm still getting used to this thing called Motor Boat Fun, but the kids have no such qualms, and MIke showed us he can still tube and waterski, even on one leg! What a guy.

Downtown St Joe's really revitalized and this year opened up a refurbished classic carousel; of course, I grooved on the beautifully-carved horses and festival colors. I do love the circus, you may have noticed…
