An Afternoon at the Beach

Yesterday my kids and I took a break from school projects we are working on. We packed a lunch and rode our bikes down the shore about a mile or so to Deer Lake State Park. Not sure why, but we like it there better than at our beach right here. It has a very long boardwalk that goes through the beautiful white dunes and past the dune lakes. It is breathtaking to me. We picked up tons of shells. I even found a nice sand dollar (as you can see in the photo).



We have been filling this jar full of shells since we moved here and it is almost completely full now.


We just started collecting driftwood recently and I am looking for an interesting jar to display the driftwood pieces in.








After we ate lunch and gathered shells, we found this very large piece of driftwood or a tree. Whatever you want to call it. It was a great spot for a photograph. We all got our feet wet a few times, but it was fun.





Later in the evening I had to run a few errands. On the way back home I saw this beautiful sunset. I pulled over and ran down the road with my camera to get a few pictures.








I thanked God for this beautiful world he created for us.

Sunsets on the beach mean a great deal to my husband and I. Thanks for sharing yours. It's 28 degrees in Indiana tonight, so believe me...it was a dream come true to see the beach, and shells and sunset. I could almost smell the water!

Wow! What a beautiful sight. I can't wait to see what you do with your driftwood. I too have some driftwood that I've saved. I just keep it in a handwoven basket, but I'd love to see other displays!

Karol, Thanks so much for linking up. Just looking at your photos encouraged me to slow down a bit today. Those things are such good gifts. Now I want to move to a quiet coastal town!
