A Day On The Beach

Well, if you came here
looking for me in a
bathing suit
you can leave
Ain't gonna happen, honey!

The other day we stopped at
Houghton, MI.

This is such a beautiful place.
MyHero relaxes for a few
mintues before opening a
What are you taking pictures of ?
he wants to know.
You better NOT be taking pictures
of the back of my head again.
I'm not-
It's your whole upper body!
There are miles of sandy/rocky beach.
The views across to the peninsula
are incredible.
We walk a bit.
I am enjoying the breeze
and the sun
and the atmosphere.
Look at all these cute little
perched on that log.
Ha!  Fooled you-
Those are KNOBS..
(which is also what my son
called uncouth people
but we won't talk about
that here).
OH MY...
More driftwood!!
OH- Can we take some home with us? I ask
Yes! Seriously!
Are you NUTS?

(Well, I have been called
that a couple of times but
not in reference to driftwood)

NO!  This is a STATE PARK!
You can't remove
from a state park..

Like they're gonna
miss one old piece of wood on
the beach.

Yeah- I get it-Y'all don't
need to send me snide remarks
about leaving it there for
everyone to enjoy!

Look here, says MyHero!


Well, this one has copper in it.

Well, when you collect enough
to melt down and make me
a copper pot
let me know.

For some reason
I always think I am way
than HE thinks I am!

Now he's gonna ignore me
for being a smart mouth.

Well, Thank the
good Lord that I had the
sense to bring along
Nothing like a cup of hot
Starbucks coffee
on the beach...

Well, except for making out
and we didn't want to make
people talk like
"didja see those old people"?
Yeah...and then there's that!

LOL! Looks like you're having a good time up north! I would want to sneak some driftwood too, it's so pretty. I'm not saying I would, just that I would want to really bad...

Debbiedoo's blogging and blabbing said...

I would have wanted to take the drift wood too. Great pics, what a gorgeous day it was Diana! Cool rock your honey found too.

The enchanted home said...

You are so funny love how you put your witty spin on even the a beach outing! Looks like a lot of fun.....and that driftwood is mighty enticing...just saying:)

Gina said...

LOL! Looks like a great time. Are you sure you didn't take any driftwood, maybe when Your Hero wasn't looking?

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Oh, he can take rocks, but you can't take driftwood. One sided, I say!

Diana...You sound like little sweetcheeks in this blog.:):) You make me laugh, and I truly need that so much lately. Thank you girlfriend, Susie

Pam said...

Would they really miss one piece of driftwood. That would look so cool in your living room.

Michele Smith said...

Too funny! I enjoy reading your posts!

Debbie said...

Looks like such a beautiful day to be at the beach. You guys make out in the middle of the day?????

Patty said...

Too funny! And I hope he didn't carry that rock home after you plastered the evidence all over the internet. He'd go to jail for sure!

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

You two are adorable!

Blondie's Journal said...

What a gorgeous day you had!! I would have wanted a piece of driftwood, too! My sister nearly dug up a plant in Florida to bring home until she had fair warning!! lol!

Glad you are having fun, Diana!


Debby said...

I used to go there as a child with my parents on vacations. So nice to see the pictures. I think you are funny, he he.

Jettie said...

Awe come on, I bet you did........
make out, that is...

Tete said...

LOL- yeah, what Jettie said! OMGosh, you can't take the drift wood? We don't have drift wood in our state parks around here.
Don't you get drift wood at your house?
Love the shoreline photos. I think you are getting pretty good at taking pictures...except when you get the back of someone's head in them.

Suzann said...

Great pictures Diana!!!
Enjoy yourself!!

Julie Harward said...

Donna said...

Ok, now I am seriously jealous, Diana! McLain State Park is our absolute favorite place to visit! How lucky you got to spend the day there. Looks like the colors are gorgeous. We camped there last October and just loved it! And I won't even tell you what WE removed from the park!!!

I love reading your posts. There are so many laugh out loud moments in them. Thank you so much.

Sweet Tea said...

I have learned that wherever you are YOU ARE THE PARTY!! Love it. Amidst the water and the rocks you are still the party-GIRL!! I just knew you were gonna show us your swim suit! I bet Your Hero would have let you take the drift wood home in exchange for a glimpse of his bathing-beauty! Just sayin. . .

Your newest follower. Your husband reminds me of mine. I enjoyed the walk. What a lovely view.

Hi Diana,
I'm jumping over from Made In the South and the Versatile Blogger awards. You are hilarious! I agree with the others who called foul to the hubby taking a rock but no wood for you!
Beautiful pictures to enjoy after my hot day here in TX. Hope you'll visit!

Cindy Adkins said...

Hi Diana,
It sounds like your trip was a scavenger hunt, indeed!!! THANK YOU so much for thinking of Ralph and me and for this beautiful button!!! I'm going to find Tete.

Cass @ That Old House said...

Oh Diana, I think I've had those same conversations with my hubs!
Including the "you aren't taking pictures of me, are you?" ones. Hahahaha... they really should know better by now, huh?

GORGEOUS pictures of wonderful scenery. What a day!

Heaven's Walk said...

LOLOL! Oh my two are sooooo NORMAL!!! Either that, or you've fallen into MY world! lolol! Hubby and I have had the exact same conversation about taking things home, and the rolling eyes, and the shaking of the head....Must be a MAN-thing. :/ Maybe if he had a shot of FatCat*Happy Dog he would'ave been more agreeable....??? Beautiful photos, though, D! It's been a beautiful October, hasn't it???? :)

xoxo laurie
