Growing up in New Jersey and living quite close to the shore, I’ve always spent my summer days breathing in the salty ocean air. It was quite a shock for me how different the lake was. I can distinctly remember how my skin felt after I jumped out of the lake that first time…the salty film and taste in my mouth was surely missing! Although different from what I’m used to, Lake Michigan is by far one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen. Surrounded by lush greenery, gorgeous lake front houses, and a body of water so blue and clear was absolutely incredible.
The lake is definitely A LOT colder than the ocean I’m used to swimming in, but fortunately for me, I don’t mind the freezing temps! The sand was the silkiest and softest I’ve ever felt; I couldn’t stop running my fingers through it, watching as all of the little particles fell back into the mass. The day at the lake was one of the best summer days thus far…a perfect 80 degrees outside, stunningly beautiful blue skies, and a bright, shining sun…I could surely get used to life on the lake!
Which do you prefer…the lake or the ocean? Let me know in the comments below! Now time for some news! I will be in Arizona in just under a week and I will be in France in just over two weeks. Can’t wait to upload travel posts for you all and explore beautiful places! Hope you are looking forward to it as much as I am!
