Weekend

Skyped with Mum yesterday. She seems in good spirits, just taking things as they come. It will only be three weeks until I'll be there and we'll be able to have a good old natter in person.

In the morning hubby and I decided to go check out a couple of lighthouses that we couldn't get to last weekend because the beaches were so packed and there was no parking. They are about an hour away. The first we stopped at was South Haven. It seems it is not in the cards for us to take a walk along the pier. It was closed off as was part of the beach as it was thought someone had fell off the pier the night before. Divers were in the water looking for a body. I heard later they had called off the search.


The waves were a bit wild. They were coming over the pier. The side of the channel that wasn't closed (not a walk out to the pier) was open and there were still people walking out there! I think sometimes because this is a lake people don't respect it as much as the open sea. The photo shows how wavy it can get!


Even at the second lighthouse St. Joe the waves were choppy. I suppose it would make nice background photos for the two weddings that were getting ready to be staged on the beach. A little windy though!


The water looked quite wild coming over the barriers. We couldn't walk all the way out (not that crazy!).

We had a nice walk in the woods today (Sunday). It is now time to get back into the swing of things - hubby is back to work tomorrow where they are really busy and I have to clean things up for daughter who will be here late Thursday night.

Hope everyone had a good weekend!

    1. I'm not a painter but I love visiting them and photographing them. These two are easy to get to from ours. They all have such great character and great stories to go with them

    1. I must admit I'm counting down the days - but not too fast as daughter is coming for a visit first!

  3. Glad to hear your Mum's in good spirits. I am continuing to keep her in my prayers.

    Those waves are something else! It must have been quite windy for the lake to get as choppy as that. Hope the bridal parties didn't get soaked from the spray!

    Hope you have a lovely visit with your daughter when she comes home! I know you are looking forward to it.

    1. Thank you!

      It was quite windy. I haven't seen waves like that on the lake in the summer, usually in the Autumn or Winter before the lake freezes. It makes for interesting photos. The parties were far enough away they won't get caught unless they try to get photos nearer the lighthouses.

  4. Technology is wonderful, that you can 'see' your Mum from so far away, time will fly by and you will be with her. Glad to hear she id doing well. Devastating to hear to about the fall off the pier, such a sad loss.

  5. Good to catch up with your mum, I'm sure you're both looking forward so much to it being in person. How awful that someone fell off the pier and dreadful that the body wasn't recovered xx
