Lakeshore & Lighthouses

On Saturday, Joanne and I took a trip to three Lakeshore sights to view the remaining ice buildup along the western shores of Lake Michigan. We stopped at South Haven, Douglas, and Holland. It was a delightful day. Here is some of what we saw:

Flutterbys

Flutterbys are what I told my grandkids I called butterflies. It seems a better word to describe them to me.

Last week my spouse and I joined three of our grandkids, their parents, and one of our daughter-in-laws at the Frederick Meijer Gardens to see the coming out party of the butterflies (or flutterbys). These pictures are from that visit. They had butterflies in all stages of their metamorphosis from caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly.

Many transgender people relate to the butterfly  image due to their own metamorphosis from who people thought they were through the transition to who they are. Whether transgender or not, I hope you enjoy these images.
