After a one month hiatus, I am back to my blog. July and August are always a busy time for me. This year is no exception. I have been on a couple of vacations, enjoyed more than my share of sunsets, taken hundreds of photographs, went to my first dirt track NASCAR race, and generally have been having a great time.
Today I am back with a notepad full of ideas for my blog, and a new eagerness to share my thoughts and ideas here. In the coming days and weeks I will be writing about a host of topics including:
- My thoughts on dogs on beaches in State Park campgrounds
- Re-visiting the lighthouse that started it all for me
- Reviews of restaurants and attractions in the Northern tip of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan
- Fun things to do in Michigan’s UP
- A list of my favorite lighthouse adventures
- Funny things that have happened over my summer
- And much more…
Back at the end of May, I wrote about the 101 days of Summer, and some of the things I love about the season. As of today there are about a dozen days left of those 101. As I am looking back at the days since Memorial Day I can say that I have had a great time. I have made the most out of the time. I have done it by being with my family and friends, taking on new or familiar adventures, and generally making sure that every day along the way counts.
Among my upcoming topics that I have listed in my notebook are “Reasons I hate Winter”, and “Reasons I tolerate Autumn”. Between now and the time I write those, I am going to make a concerted effort to find as much to like in both of those seasons as I can.
One of the lessons I hit upon for myself in an earlier post is that each day matters, and they matter more when I strive to make sure that they matter, whether that is in my own life, or the lives of those around me. So, among the travelogue entries, humorous observations and my endless lists, I will also be sharing my personal reflections along the way.
So, stay tuned!
