A day at the beach is good for the soul.
Saturday morning, beginning our first full day at the cabin, we had a giant spread of breakfast foods – my favorite!
After breakfast we packed our bags and headed to the beach.
And wow, we lucked out! North Higgins Lake State Park was beautiful. Nice long, wide, clean sandy beach, crystal clear water, lots of shade, ample picnic tables, and grills.

Judgmental sea gull:
As if I hadn’t already eaten enough for the day, we had a small lunch of grilled brats, from Falmouth. You know my favorite brats are the hot and spicy ones, so it should be no surprise that I went for the jalapeño brats! These definitely rival Biercamp’s brats. Plus I had about six more handfuls of chippies.
On the way back to the cabin, we drove by the cottage my mom grew up visiting every summer as a kid, which was formerly owned by the family. Neat, huh?
