THE MORIN POINT YEARS

A lifetime ago
When my kids were kids
Summer meant Erie
“Overnights” with cousins
Hours fishing on the dock
Sipping trumpet vine
Boating with Grandpop
Awaiting words, “Want to steer?”
Bracing for waves
Haunted Erie Lighthouse
Spotting Turtle Island once more
Wading Toledo Beach
Faygo quenches thirst
Seagulls play Follow-the-Leader
Sleepyheads nap reluctantly
Lakeside fire pit
Outside in pajamas, laughter abounds
Sticky blackened marshmallows
Rainy-day fun
Kitchen-table Euchre with Grandma
Blanket tent cities
The music room
Grandpop’s headphones gobbling their heads
Jazz on vinyl
Time with Grandpop
Stretched out on the floor
Catching “Tarzan” reruns
Fond memories abound
Summer days on Morin Point
With devoted Grandparents

  1. Marie Elena, what a great capture of the memories children take with them.For us, it was Wasaga Beach just on the shores of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay.This is a treasure!
