Images of the Day

I thought I would pop in and show you what we did today.
The wind was blowing hard today and Lake Michigan waves were high so we went out to


do a little wave jumping,


watch a few surfers
(yes, you can even surf on Lake Michigan when the waves are right)


and watch two jet skiers jump the waves.
They really caught some great air out there.


I was also introduced to this amazing app from Val at ValSoCal called Instagram.

It is SO COOL!!!!!

Here are a few things that you can do with it.


All these were taken with my iPhone and then adjusted on the Instagram App.
LOVE!!!

Michelle- I just got home from work and have to go to a meeting tonight but I called my daughter and told her to make sure and bring the kids out here because the waves are just pounding in...and will be fun for them to jump. I love that you were able to do that today. It will all end soon, won't it? xo Diana

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

Cute shots! And that boat..., I'm glad that I'm not on it. I'd be so sea sick. It's almost always windy by the beach here in RI.

Great images, Michelle! I need to instagram! Your photos are beautiful.

I really should have gotten a iPhone rather than a Blackberry. Better apps on the iPhone. I hear the Instagram app is addictive.

Cute pictures! I had no idea Lake Michigan could have waves like that! I don't think they will get as rough as the Atlantic off the east coast this weekend though! We are bracing for the Hurricane out here!

I have Instagram in my iPhone and I love it too. I have also heard of someone that duplicated Photoshop actions to look like Instagram ones. Pretty cool, huh?
