A Walk Along the Lake Trail

On a sunny Saturday,I had the pleasure of walking along our lake trail with Steve and Kai.
I can't say that we saw any spectacular sights along the way,but the joy of walking with my family made it a great day.

This trail is also used by mountain bikers and so is kept in fairly good shape.At a spot that can often be muddy,they have placed these old railroad ties,to make it easier to walk or bike there.


We all know that Steve is a fantastic photographer  and I try to get some good shots as well,but did you know that Kai is also a photographer? We stopped at this spot and she asked if she could use my camera to take a picture.This is one of the pictures she took.It is one that I would have likely taken as well,but now didn't need to.I love that girl's creative eye.


These two people were not aware that they were being photographed,but they sure added to this picture.It is a very peaceful scene.


Of course I have to get pictures of the people as well.Steve is getting ready to take the next picture.


My sweet Kai,posing for her Daddy. For a girl who mostly doesn't want her picture taken,she sure is photogenic when she wants to be.



It isn't the great big pleasures that count the most;
it's making a great deal out of the little ones.

  2. I love the quote at the end of this post, and of course the pictures are beautiful. Kai has certainly inherited her grandmother's and her father's talent.

  10. So beautiful. You live in a heavenly place!

    Your walkway down to the lake reminds me of our neighbor's when I was child. It was a descending path of steps carved and set with wood beams leading from their backyard to the shore of Lake Huron.
