Sand chairs. Beach towels. Sunscreen. Waves. Umbrellas. Picnic lunches. 50 degree water. Numb toes. Lake Michigan. People watching. Stupid chain smokers (at the beach? Really?) Hairy-backed man (sorry for the grainy photo, but I was being a paparazzi, and had to zoom in my faraway shot). Sun. Perfect weather. Toes in the sand. Mother-daughter time. Seagulls. Lifeguards. Rescue boats poking long sticks in the water (I swore they were searching for bodies, but Mom said no.) High parking prices. Boardwalks. Adorable kids playing in the sand. Yellow cake batter ice cream at Oinks.
I'd say the day was a success. Can't wait to do it again soon!
