Enjoyable Tuesday - feels off because it's a holiday!

We did go walking this morning. We decided on a state park that is along Lake Michigan but there is about a half mile uphill walk to the beach. The park is named Saugatuck Dunes State Park - the dunes in there telling you it's all hills. We did get there early enough that it wasn't too busy. We got a nice walk in over the dunes (one of the harder trails) and along the beach. By the time we got back to the car park it was getting packed. People were carrying LOADS of stuff up the hills! Crazy!

A little piece of paradise - at least for a little while! Pretty sure that later in the day it was as packed as every beach in west Michigan seems to be. At least we got out for a walk for a bit. It was beautiful along the lakeshore. I love seeing small structures like the one in the top photo. Interesting. I always wonder who built them and why.

Back at home hubby did do some sausages on the grill. I didn't eat any but I did have some yummy corn that he grilled. He has got that down to a fine art. I'm not much good on the grill and I'm happy to leave it to him. In truth I don't even know how to use the thing!

Good news in the garden. Despite seeing a deer sniffing around them the other evening I have flowers on the plants my friend gave me. I can't tell you how happy I am to be able to show them to her. I killed the last lot she gave me.

I love the way they look when they first start blooming. Hope everyone is enjoying their Tuesday!


  1. Looks like a beautiful place for a walk.

  2. Oh I love grilled you've made me

  3. Sounds like a good way to spend any day!

  4. They are unusual looking aren't they. Sausages and corn sounds good to me and what a lovely beach xx

  5. Lovely beach! I really wanted a hotdog on Tuesday, but I didn't have any on hand and I felt too lazy to drive to get one! Grilled sausages and corn would have been lovely.
