Back in March I blogged about what I called 'The Salton Sea of the Midwest' here and here. It was cold and snowy and the trees were bare. Since then I've been anxious to make a return visit once everything had begun to grow again. On Memorial Day I had my chance. We tried to leave early enough to get here in time for sunrise, and we failed, but we still got here in time to take advantage of some great early morning light. We even brought a small grill so that we could have a Memorial Day picnic, but none of us brought any food so that didn't work out very well. Despite a couple hard fails, the day was still a lot of fun.
Everyone's favorite trailer, the watermelon.
I took almost the exact same photo the first time I was here. It's always interesting to see how things change over time.
And here's almost the same photo but with Kaylah in it. I had to include in the post. It's one of my favorites from the day.
This cottage is trying to hide.
This is another photo very similar to one that I took the last time I was here. This couch and the colors of the wall are just too good not to shoot.
Well worth the return visit, just as it will be worth making a visit here in the Fall as well.
