Little toddler buddies at sunset — in awe of the big girls dancing around them.
When the Leelanau Conservancy preserved this piece of land, there was talk that these woods overlooking an incredible expanse of Lake Michigan Clay Cliffs was “old growth” forest. Upon closer inspection, stewardship staff determined that the trees don’t quite fit that classification, but as we made our way under their canopy this morning, I still felt like we were walking among giants.
This is perfect weather for taking the school books outside!
We’re filled with such gratitude for this land of lakes we live in.
We’ve been gathering petoskey stones for Gommy. A huge crop of these treasures was recently revealed on one of our favorite beaches. A petoskey stone is a fossil from an ancient coral called Hexagonaria percarinata. Years of water, wind, and waves shape each unique piece of fossil into a smooth stone treasure that looks almost polished when wet.
