Third Poem ~~

Wow - everyone on the blogs I follow have been busy! There hasn't been time for me to check them all out boo woo! Please know that I enjoy hearing about and seeing everyone's work and little stories, ideas, and new adventures.

For today's Post, here is the third Poem from the Album I've been working on.

As a family, we would spend summer vacations camping (yes in a tent) at the Benzie State Park in Michigan. What wonderful times we had - even when it rained, which happened quite frequently it seemed! and the wonderful memories we have now.

We would use our air mattresses (or our canoe) to float down the Platt River to Lake Michigan and spend hours there playing in the sand, jumping the waves, running from the cold Lake over the little sand mound to the river, which felt like bath water, to get warm. Then we'd do it all over again. We would go play at the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, visit area towns, pick blueberries, check out the area Lighthouse, have campfires, summer romances, and spend time with other family members ~~ grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins ~~ who would camp in the neighboring sites.

So this is a story about one of Nancy's memories. The Point Betsie Lighthouse is located on the shores of Lake Michigan in Frankfort, Michigan. A few years ago, I found this Point Betsie stationary and had typed the poem on it and gave it my sister. For the Album, I redid it here for the Album.
