We left my parents to go to visit my cousins north of here in Oswego.
We were like siblings growing up and so it is nice to connect and catch up each year.
(that's my dad in the middle, I said I would get a pic of him eventually!)
The water was so pretty and varied. A good wind kept us cooled off from this heat wave.
And prevented us from skipping rocks!
After our visit at the fish fry place, we went a bit down the shoreline to a place where I used to take the kids but especially my youngest when he was the only one home. The waves were rolling right over the flat rocks when on a calm day, you can sun bathe and picnic there!
To the right of the flat rocks is this path we would take to go behind the power plant to the pier made of slabs of stone and it is jumbled in places so you had to channel your inner mountain goat to navigate some places! I would carry my knitting and a lawn chair and Caleb his fishing gear and we would while away the hours in companionable bliss.
It made a good back drop for pictures today!
Way in the background is the Oswego Port lighthouse.
It is off limits technically....but a good hike out there is sometimes too great to resist!
Today, we resisted!
Me and my baby sis!
My special choice rocks to bring home-there just aren't rocks like this in Florida!
