It was so hot and humid today, I had to go somewhere cooler and wet. I wanted Maggie to be able to go, which really limited the choices. But Summit Township Park allows dogs on leash. And there is access to a lot of unpopulated beach north of there.
We walked around the point you can see here, and a bit farther before turning around. I walked in the water. The big lake is warm (water temps in 60's) already- it's only June! Maggie is so prissy. She hardly ever let her feet get wet. She managed to avoid all the water dog genes from either the Vizsla or Labrador heritage.
There aren't many big rocks along the Michigan shore, unlike Lake Superior where there are lots of rocks. So I was delighted to find that this stretch of beach has quite a few rocks. This was the biggest.
The variety of colors and patterns in the rocks was great! This rock is about three feet across.
The commonest colors were pink, white and black, but once in a while there was a bright gem. These are smaller- just a few inches across.
I took way too many pictures. I know I've posted more than I usually do, but the beauty of the wet rocks was overwhelming. Just one more... These little beauties were arranged by Mother Nature, just for you.
More work tomorrow! Who knows what I'll find. Also, I'm going to be interviewed at 6:30 pm Eastern (3:30 Pacific time) about being an author. Hear it live, or listen to the recording later, at A Cup of Coffee and a Good Book
