is for the Beach.
We love the Beach.
We grew up in the Indiana Dunes on Lake Michigan. We went swimming everyday and sometimes twice a day in the summer. Sometimes we would go down to the beach in the evening and cool off in the water one more time at sunset. Picnics at the beach and bonfires in the evenings are the best! I love the water, I love the sand, and I love the way the beach transforms thru all of the seasons. In the winter the waves freeze in place. Now I live in Evanston, IL and walk my dog Scout along the beach everyday on the other side of Lake Michigan. There is something so relaxing about the lake. It reminds me of my childhood and all of the possibilities in life. Today the weather was super hot and then suddenly everything cooled off and the wind on the lake was so refreshing. As summer begins, the beach is opening up it's arms. Here are some pictures I took on today's walk.
