Morning Walk and a Good Day


Thanks, everyone for your well-wishes. The headache is just part of the difficulty I have adjusting to the schedule to do the paper route. One more day and I can go back to being a night owl.

Much to my surprise, when I finished today, for the first day all week, I did not have a headache and I felt GOOD. Wow! So I started by taking a walk on the south breakwall of the Pentwater channel. It was a lovely calm morning, with the last traces of a fog making everything look soft.

Pentwater Channel

A young couple was "spooning" on the opposite side in the shadow of the lighthouse, but they cut it out and just sat still for a few minutes, so I snapped their silhouette with "The Three Sisters" dunes in the background. That's their name... it's collective. As far as I know, they aren't individuals like Edith or Iona or Charlotte.

Walking back to my car, I just liked the way these sailboats at anchor looked in Pentwater Lake.

I continued to feel good all day. I did some gardening, and some maintenance things, and treated myself to a burger cooked over a fire. I only ate one! The rest will still have the great open fire flavor all week, even when warmed in the microwave.

I think I may be able to fall asleep fairly early again, so I'm off to bed soon. Definitely a quality day, just one more morning of paper route!

YAY...so happy you had a good day and no headache. And now you can go back to your "normal" life! Love the photos....looks like the kinda day I would have loved. Hoping to soon be free to come that way and chill for a few days.

Lovely shots. I have to say there is something so calming about the water to me. Glad to hear you had a good day and hooray for only one more day of the paper route

I LOVE the sailboat photo!! Nice. :)

Glad you are feeling better. Nothing worse than those lingering headaches. Ugh.

Save a burger for me!! They look delicious.

I like early morning walks in the summer--it's the best part of the day! Is Maggie going to get one of those burgers too? I hope so!

There's nothing like feeing good! I'm so glad to hear that...and the walk by that lovely lake had to add to your day! I love the shot of the lighthouse - and the sailboats.

I spent hours today trying to clean up and my best friend ( 49 years!! ) arrives tomorrow for two weeks. Things are chaos as I've slowly been trying to pack the house for my move...still don't know when it will happen - but by the end of September!
