Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Day out Leelanau County again................

Well it was a couple of weeks ago now but Laura and I took a day for ourselves and went to the beach. Since then we have had nothing but rain it seems. Also my computer was in the shop and I didn't have a way to get my pictures on the old one from my phone. In fact I have probably a lot of pictures now on the old computer. Anyway if I remember correctly we didn't see much in the way of wildlife that day. We began at Leland looking for stones. The water not as cold as we thought.When we were done though Laura was a little damp haha. This is The Whaleback.

This is not Leland beach we went to the one at Oneida but was brisk, so we left.

I am trying to remember what we did in fact. I think that was the day we went up the Dune drive. Yes, we did but not sure what order we did things but ah well, was a good day.
We did see some pretty blossoms and a few blue butterfly and small orange ones.

It was a really windy day, it wasn't cold until you got into the bluffs. We went to the overlook this time. We are usually too tired to walk out there most times but this time we made the effort. It gives a really good view all around from high up. This looking down onto North Bar Lake. Thats a great place for kids to swim in the little bit between the lake and Lake Michigan. When my kids were small it was not well known and a favourite destination. Not so much now. Have not been for several years. We like lesser known beaches.

We put coats on, lucky we did, with the wind up there it was cold and the sand was whipping us. This is Laura on the edge

Its about 440 odd feet down there and although people do go down, they are advised not to. It takes about 2 hours to get back up. Also if they have to rescue you then you get to pay for it. You may notice a dot down there, well that may be a person.

Anyway this was a nice view of Glen Lake. The colours of the lakes here are beautiful.

We never get tired of the views on the dunes.
On the way home we saw these cuties. Not very wild, but there were the Butterfly at least.

Lots of birdsong but no pictures. Ah well, maybe next time. Laura has to work full time almost so wont be too many trips out this year. Must content myself with my garden
