One of my all time favorite spots in Livingston county is Kensington Metro Park! Being a nature lover, I'm constantly amazed and dazzled by the beauty of this place! I have jokingly called it "my estate", since I have found that during the week I often have the park to myself! I have two beaches, miles of walking trails, picnic areas, a water park, snack bars, boat tours (an extra charge), a nature center, and a farm center - all for the lovely price of $12.00 a year! (senior rate) Now THAT'S an estate affordable to all! The only thing missing is the mansion, but do I want to spend time cleaning indoors when I have all this beauty outside? I tell you, I feel like a millionaire with each visit!
On Monday I visited my Kensington Estate. It was gusting strong winds, but my spirits weren't chilled. At this point I'm going to let these pictures speak for me!

|Nature's breathtaking handiwork!|
|No matter where you point the camera, there beauty is!|
