Summer Weekend . . .

friday night walleye was just one part
of our great summery weekend
the weather has been cool to warm
beautiful summery days and eve's
sunday eve we walked the
North Muskegon channel out to Lake Michigan
snickers joined us
and she insisted walking on that narrow curb
just her right size i suppose
silly little doggie she can be

as we walked the channel,
we saw a family of ducks
male, female and their ducklings
the three little ones
were tucked up under the large boulders

as we walked the channel
snickers pulled us off on one of the sand trails
up into the dunes
we climbed
up to the top
where we could see the vastness of
Lake Michigan

tucked into the dune
there was someone else enjoying
the warmth and view

snickers pulled mister irish
back to the car

it was a full moon evening as we drove home

I see the moon
the moon sees me
up there over the apple tree
(i used to sing that to my children)

see that little white round moon

i haven't a camera to catch great shots of the moon
one day when i grow up maybe
i'll get a big girl camera
until then
iphone or pad for my pics

standing in the road in front of our house
i was able to get this midnight shot of the moon

this week i am
linking up on thursday with
Good Fences
on saturday with
Saturday's Critters
happy week my friends

Your dog wanting to walk along that little curb is like our cat choosing to walk along the fence when he is out with us. Lovely summer weekend. -Jenn

A walk along the lake shore sounds like a perfect way to spend a summer evening. And what a cutie Snickers is!

Bonnie said...

A beautiful walk! Your pictures are lovely. I hope you are doing well and having a lovely week. Hugs!

I think I'd enjoy sitting in the same spot that girl is sitting on the dune. Looks like a great sandy area sort of hidden away from public view. Wonder if she would leave and let me have that spot. LOL

Looks like a lovely place to walk and spend the evening..( Snickers leading the way). They tend to do that ;)....I always say that Mollie is taking me for a walk..I wish she would share her ice collar..

The beach, a pup and a glance of the that is summer to me!!

Kate @ Daffodils said...

Beautiful walk! We sing "I see the moon, the moon see me, God Bless the moon and God bless me" to the kids whenever we see a big one like that too!

Thanks for taking us on your walk. I just love summer evenings. I used to sing I see the moon to my children only the last lines then for me were ' God bless the Moon and God bless me. Funny how everything is the same only it isn't. "my thought for the day"==LOL

Great shots. The girl in the dunes is marvelous. Thanks for sharing your lovely walk. I was afraid the dog would fall in the first one!

Ida said...

Very nice post. I liked your fence shot & your sweet little Snickers. One of our cats is named, Snickers.
