I grew up spending summers at a lake in Illinois.
I'd forgotten just how brown the sand is
and how murky the water can be.
I think I'm spoiled by the beaches where we go
in Florida and Michigan. White sand, clear
water...I like that so much better!
My little guys, they liked this beach just fine!
It was really fun to run and "plop" into the water.
I was so glad he didn't land on a rock!
After drying off and a stop at the playground, Grandma
and Grandpa were hungry. Catfish Curls were
on the menu at the marina restaurant.
We stopped at an area peach orchard. The
same family owns a winery, where the
nectarines were heavy on the trees.
Orchard View Winery is known for their wine made with Illinois
fruits. It is delicious wine. We let the boys enjoy the band
that was playing, but no wine drinking for us this trip.
We had precious cargo to take care of.
After arriving safely at home, the boys took
a short drive up and down the driveway.
A good time was had by all. The boys left around noon on Sunday
and Grandma and Grandpa slept very well Sunday night.
I'm linking this to Outdoor Wednesday with our hostess
Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer. Please take a moment
to visit her and see all the other posts this week.
