Just getting back from a marvelous week on Lake Michigan. I spent a lot of time doing the above. No news, no email, no phones. We couldn’t even get the ball game on the radio without acrobatics. The water was rough and cool most of the time. The sand was fine and the sun set with her usual power past our bonfired beach each evening. Some of our party caught a huge amount of salmon from Lake Michigan’s deep waters as well as a handful of other fish from local lakes and rivers. We were fortunate to have excellent cooks among us including a Japanese grandmother. What she did with all of that fresh fish was nothing short of splendid. We ate well. Feeling refreshed and ready. A proper vacation is well worth the wait.
