Lakeside Lunch

This afternoon 
I grabbed a little lunch 
and headed to the beach.

There weren't many people out walking at noon, 
which is unusual around here, 
but the beach hasn't officially
opened in our little town. 

It's in the 80's today and
the sunshine made the water 
of Lake Michigan
the prettiest color of blue.

The coastline looking north.

Placid water..... not a wave to be seen.

In just a few weeks, 
these beaches will be filled with families 
and the water will be sprinkled with sail boats.

Views of the beach taken from the bluff above.

 But today,
it is quite peaceful
as spring takes her hold.

Thanks for stopping by today.
I hope you have a special spot
to lunch quietly too.


 P.S. I posted this yesterday and for some reason,
it was gone today, as were all my comments
I made on other blogs. Has that ever happened to you?

Beautiful images! What a terrific way to spend your lunch hour! I can't wait til this weekend. We plan on heading up to the lake for some fishing and relaxation. Hopefully the water will be just as calm. Thanks for sharing.

Oh Alison, this is so pretty. I love the sea glass colours of soft green and blue with the sand. Gorgeous! I wish your warm, sunny weather was here in the Maritimes! Pamela

EVERYthing in Blogger was a mess yesterday! Made me a little crazy.

This is how I like my beaches...what a wonderful way to spend the noon hour. I'm jealous--but at the same time your photos brought the beach to me here. Thank you.

Lake Michigan is really pretty. I saw it when I was in high school, but only from the car window.:) I wish we could have seen more of it. It's so blue and your photos are great.
I think everyone had Blogger problems last night. I didn't lose anything but couldn't make comments.I know some lost their most recent post. Hope all is sorted out now.
Have a great weekend,

What a pretty place for a picnic! This is such a serene and lovely post. I needed it today after the chaos of blogger, more thunder showers, and end of the school year craziness!

Alison, I'm so happy I found your blog, it's wonderful. Lake Michigan is gorgeous and your photographs are just awesome! I love your header too!

Blogger was a mess for quite awhile! Lost my post, somehow, it was back today!

Alison, I saw this yesterday, but of course couldn't leave you a comment. Thanks for sharing these photos. I've never been to Chicago or Lake Michigan. What a treat! Hope you have a beautiful weekend! Perhaps a picnic at the beach. ~ Sarah
