Writer's Workshop

I have participated before in Mama Kat's workshop. It's been a loooong time.

Mama’s Losin’ It

So, this week I contemplated a couple options. Writing about my mom - probably not a good idea, since she reads my blog. I'd hate to hurt her feelings by putting down what I feel I do better than she did. When she reads this, she'll understand. I appreciate she did the best she could and that's what matters most. I love her very much.

I also thought about big trouble. I couldn't pick just one big thing, further proving why my mom did the best she could. I was in trouble quite often.

I decided to go with a photo story of the beach. We live about 30 minutes from the Indiana Dunes Nat'l lake shore, Lake Michigan. We go there a few times every summer. I'm not much of a water person, but my kids LOVE the water. This particular visit, I had just gotten a new camera. It was in 2008. I can't find the power cord for my Ext HD, so I took these from my facebook account. They are my favorite pictures from that day. They are some of my favorite pictures of all time.

Amazing photos! I hope you have these framed. I love watching kids pure joy as they play in the surf. That is childhood at it's best! Great job!

These pictures are all very good. I'm sure if I knew the children, I would like them even more, because the sweet little personalities would shine through!

I love these pictures! I'm jealous that you live so close to the beach, although, I don't know what the weather is like up there, so maybe I shouldn't be TOO jealous!

Beautiful pictures! And oh, look at those waves! I've been dying to go back to the beach, and these pictures are making me jealous.

Thanks, everyone! In the winter, it is cold. This past winter sucked...bad! Spring & Summer, though are great! The water gets pretty warm, too. Not too warm that it isn't refreshing, but warm.

Middleageandoverqualified - It's about 240 miles from Detroit, the National Lakeshore. There may be some place a little closer to you, though, I'm not sure.
