Garden? What Garden?

I've been on a little vacation to my beloved hometown on the shores of Lake Michigan, so this will not be a garden related post. However, garden lovers are generally nature lovers, so I think my readers can appreciate the beauty of my favorite spot.
  I have to admit, that the weather was not ideal while I was there. It has been hot and dry over much of the country, for most of the summer. However, once I arrived in the little tourist town of St. Joseph Michigan where I grew up, the rains arrived. Just call me the Rain Goddess! But the skies cleared often enough for me to spend some time at the beach.
 I don't have to sunbathe to enjoy the beach, I just have to be there. One day, I even went to the beach when it was drizzling. The waves were big, and I had the whole place to myself. I loved it just as much as a sunny day.
 Needless to say, my favorite time at the beach is sunset. You might even say that I am addicted to sunsets. I can't get enough of them. Sunsets are often beautiful, but throw in a beach and a lighthouse, and it's heavenly.
Now I did visit a lovely garden on my trip. And I took lots of garden pictures to share here on my blog. But first things first. As much as I love gardens, sunset at the beach will trump even a day at Fernwood Botanic Garden. I'll share that another day.
