Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

Yesterday I took a trip with a group from church to the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. It was so nice to get away for the day and hang out with nature!

I had some toast then squeezed in a quick 3 mile run before we left knowing I wouldn’t want to run when I got home. When I got to church they had doughnuts… and chocolate milk… and I couldn’t resist ;)

After some brief problems finding the trail, we were finally on our way! The hike lasted a little over an hour and covered just over 3 miles.

I was starving when we finally made it to the beach and eagerly devoured my lunch – PB&J, broccoli & carrots, and an apple.

I wasn’t planning on going swimming but people looked like they were having fun so I caved :D Lake Superior was pretty cold, but really refreshing!

We hiked back and within 10 minutes of leaving we were caught in a torrential downpour. God blessed us with a beautiful day hiking though, so I’m not complaining! WeĀ stopped at Hardee’s on the way home. I didn’t want anything because a) I don’t like fast food and b) I had this waiting for me at home!

I watched the Tigers, pinned, and was more than ready for bed at 9:00. I’m a grandma ;)
