My first morning at my family's cottage last week, I woke up to the smell of breakfast. I'm always a little hopeful when we're up there, because my mom is more motivated to make breakfast. Who has time or energy to make breakfast during the week? Actually, sometimes I do. But I don't work every morning. In fact, I rarely do now, sadly. Anyway, the smell was amazing and I quickly dressed and came to the kitchen and had coffee and made the toast for everyone. I'm more motivated too.
We had a farmer's breakfast. You know, kind of like an omelette but just all mixed together. Almost everything was local to Grand Haven, too. Bonus points for mom!
Then, at the suggestion of said mom, we went kayaking. What a great suggestion. We had such a great time. Erika got a little grouchy at the end, but I just sucked it up, since it's only about once a year that I'm on the Muskegon river at that point. And it was the first time I had kayaked down it. We usually float in tubes and stuff.
It was a beautiful day, not too hot, not too cold, not too windy. Well, no, it was pretty windy in some parts and it almost stopped us a few times. We saw lots of turtles, mostly painted turtles but one HUGE snapper and three leatherbacks! We also saw a bald eagle. He was pretty awesome.
