On one of our last warm days of Autumn, Roland and I took an outing to Norway Beach on Cass Lake. Matt was home sick so this was just a mommy and son day. We spent the afternoon leisurely strolling (and playing) on the beach, soaking up the warm sunshine and fresh air, and admiring the beauty of the lake.
Roland was in a hurry to walk down the stone stairs to the beach.
There is something pretty magical about water. The brilliance of the sunlight reflecting off of it and the soothing sound of waves softly lapping upon the sandy shore touch a special spot in my soul. I do miss the mountains of Idaho, but I have begun to appreciate the pure pleasure of walking along a lake shore (and northern Minnesota has plenty to offer).
The simple beauty of a leaf.
I love early fall when there are so many vibrant colors all on the same tree branch.
Give this boy a stick and sand and he is occupied for HOURS.
A lovely place to sit.
This is the day that the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.
