It hadn't been on the top of my list since everyone talked about how smelly, dirty, & nasty it was. But after following a few local photographers and seeing all the gorgeous shots they got out there, I was getting more & more intrigued. And then a little photography project of my own (more on this later), finally got our little family out here.
The weather wasn't exactly what I was hoping for, but it wasn't stinky at all! The sand was soft, and the boys loved it. It's a long walk from the road to where you get to the actual water, so there was plenty of time for the anticipation to build. It really is a stunning sight! Such a unique place! I only wish we had brought some chairs & adult beverages for the excursion!
And while it may look like we had the whole place to ourselves, it was actually just crawling with photographers and families. But the lake & beach are huge; everything is so wide open, that you practically feel like it's just you out there. It's an interesting little place, but I could totally see us coming back. If not just for pictures. I've already decided we really need to do a family session here!
