These are from the first day, taken at IN Dunes State Park. We played on the beach in the 80 degrees, then took a 4-mile hike back in the woods. My Fitbit registered 24 flights of stairs from all the dunes we climbed.
Day two was a trip to New Buffalo, MI's city beach park, another pretty place to climb dunes. Along the way, we stopped at a favorite orchard to pick over 21 pounds of Pink Lady apples.
That evening, we went to see the sunset at Michigan City, IN's city park.
And today, my actual birthday, we hiked a favorite trail at the IN Dunes National Lake Shore West Beach.
I always enjoy our trips to see Lake Michigan. I will not be going back for some time, so this was an especially sweet trip. I am very grateful!!
