A short trip out to the island

Something almost rare for me,a drive over to the island. It only takes three to six minutes to get there from my home,but I seldom cross the bridge.
This day,I was on a mission to collect a few sea-shells for a class of Michigan third grade students.I had a fine time crawling around in the sand,looking for little treasures.
I also had the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of my surroundings.EVERY time I go out there,I wonder why I don't go more often.
I hope the students get even a tiny taste of the way it makes me feel to be on the island. Some evidence of the awesome power of nature.
Broken bridges,like hearts,can eventually be mended.
A snapshot of puppy love.
When your world is very small.
There is no hunger,
no war,
no politics.
Only each other.

Sometimes it can be so tough to remember when life was so simple.
But it is still easy for me to see the beauty and miracles that surround me daily.
