I have been to this lake a million times before, but never to this beach. I am walking, guided by my 3 year old friend, who knows the way. (His mom also gave me directions... just in case.) We cross over the big dune and he exclaims, "Alicia, look at the ocean."
I tell him the ocean look so incredibly beautiful.
Tonight Lake Michigan is our ocean, and we will swim and laugh in her waves.
