Turn Your Eyes to the Lord of the Skies

I must admit that since I've lived in Grand Haven, I've never walked on the Pier by myself, I usually save it for when I have company. It was a gorgeous, cool evening, though so I decided I'd take a walk & listen to a Jeff Tweedy show I just downloaded.

What an incredible evening. The temperature was in the low '50s, just how I like it. There was very few people on the pier. My walk was timed perfectly, the sun dropped behind Lake Michigan just as I was about twenty yards from the end of the pier. A few clouds provided a nice backdrop around the most perfect sunset I've ever seen. Lake Michigan was smoother than I've ever seen it, so smooth that there was a duck leaving a wake behind him.

As if that wasn't enough, as I was walking back towards land, a perfect full moon high above the dunes guided me back to my car. What an incredible place. I ought to do this more often.

Wait! Wait! There's more! As if Christie isn't incredible enough, she also has connections to get tickets to all kinds of things, so guess who's going to game four of the Tigers vs. Yankees? I don't think I've ever been to a playoff game for anything, except maybe for the consolation trophy for soccer at St Johns.

Andy - Wow a play off game! I copied your baseball blog and gave it to Opa. He loved it. He said he didn't know you knew that much about the Tigers;) Thanks for making an old man happy to share something with his grandson. Hope you had fun celebrating the win.

Whoa, whoa, hold on. I'm going to Saturday's game. As much as I'd love to have been at last night's game, tonight's gonna be better 'cause they will clinch the series!

Opa knows a few things about baseball, thanks for giving that too him, mary.
