Vaca at the beach

Remember that one time I was soliciting  beach vacation ideas.
Well, due to the overwhelming response, I decided to stay close to home instead of venturing out.
The hubs and I (and one of his buddies) headed off to good ole Illinois Beach yesterday.
aka a lake with some sand
I really had no idea if I was going to be able to handle all of the beauty.
But I did. All $1 worth.
The boys did too.
Look at them… sunbathing like a bunch of coeds on the quad
Why yes, I did plan that fancy-frame shutter work.
Not really.
I tried to sneak one of the goofball, but he sleeps with one eye open.
Must be the army training.
However, I’m much stealthier.
And smarter since I figured out how to fix my lens.
It’s all from my Nancy Drew training.
You think I kid?
It may not have been Hawaii, San Diego, or the Carolinas, but it was a nice day in the sun regardless.
And who knows, if we collect enough change, we may be adventurous and have another beach day this summer.
That’s us.
Passing the Baton:  What are some of your most memorable vacations? Trips far away from home? Stay-cations? Are you more of a beach or mountain person?
