With the continued blessing of beautiful weather, we did the outdoorsy things that people do for the 4th of July. We picked up fresh fruit and veggies from a local farmer. (We also sneaked in some apple butter). We bought fireworks. And, we went to the beach. Not just any old beach, but Saugatuck dunes. It is a one mile hike from the parking lot to the beach uphill in the woods. It is absolutely beautiful and thankfully shady or I could have been a mess even before we got there. I was in the middle of my honeycomb washcloth and I was so very tempted to bring to the beach and knit. Thank goodness better sense prevailed and I left it home. It was so windy that I looked like a big piece of pork all covered in shake and bake if you know what I mean! After we got back home and indulged in a piece of bread with apple butter, I finished the washcloth and I think it will make a great pattern for Christmas presents (ssssssssshhhhhhh!).
