I am happiest near water. Friday night Jeff and I attended his cousin’s wedding Kenosha, Wisconsin. It seems everyone is more aware of Kenosha because of the riots last year, but the wedding venue was gorgeous, and a few blocks away from Lake Michigan.
I am so thankful that last summer we went to Door County. I am craving another trip there, even though the drive is farther than I would go for just a weekend. Every trip we have taken to the east side of Wisconsin we have driven in Jeff’s truck. But this weekend we took my car and I have driven. Jeff had work calls to take on Friday while we were driving, and I had the day off so I could drive undistracted.
Saturday morning we slept in, and walked down to the marina to take in Lake Michigan. I would have given just about anything to drive up to Door County and walk the shore on the rocks among the trees. But instead we took in the view and headed to Jeff’s hometown to spend some time with more family.
Summer is slipping by fast, and fall always go even faster. Jeff’s house has now been announced as “sometime in November” so who knows what will be happening by that time.
But I know when I’m feeling overwhelmed, a little time near water will make me feel a little bit better. Even if I just get to look at the boats and not ride on them.
