Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Other pretty things


When Katie and I camped in northern Michigan over on Lake Huron we had a great time even though we had to cut the trip short due to rain.

But when she was telling you all about it she focused on herself. As befits a princess I guess.

Our first day was beautiful.

Still, there were plenty of pretty things up there that you didn’t get to see because they weren’t always about her.

Loved how the lake disappeared into the morning sky.

There was beauty in the big expanse of the space, and tiny things too.

Is this a buttercup?

So I thought you might want to see a couple of the things that didn’t get shared. And yes. One or two of them might even include the princess.

Low clouds closing in.

But don’t tell her.

"The spotlight should ALWAYS be on ME mama!"

“The spotlight should ALWAYS be on ME mama!”

She’s already got a big head.

"Which is prettier?  The lake or me?"

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Looks like a beautiful trip. And yes, that is a buttercup. 🙂 I love the shot of the beach with the butterfly zooming by.

    The answer to that last question is: You, of course, Katie. But the lake comes in a very close second.

    • She says thank you Robin. It was a beautiful trip. Just a great campground, mostly because I snagged a site on the lake. And most of the campground was empty. Wish I had gotten the butterfly in focus but I noticed it out of the corner of my eye and snapped without looking.


  2. Could anything be more perfect than sand and water with a butterfly flitting by? Katie, there are different kinds of beauty – there is yours, which of course cannot be matched, and there is that of the lake, which is a very close second. But second, of course.


  3. Things are beautiful up north! 😉


  4. Thanks for the pretty! We can always use more pretty in our lives!


  5. These are so pretty, especially that sunrise. Perhaps that reddish sky should have alerted you to the rain that was to come?? And yes, Katie is beautiful — she and the lake compliment one another; but don’t tell her she comes out on top!!


  6. BEAUTIFUL capture of that buttercup!!!
