It's a beach thing

Okay, continuing our camping trip. On Sunday Tom and Dean fixed breakfast and we discussed plans for the day. We decided to go to the casino. There's one in Michigan City, just 10 miles from the campground. Like I always said, that's never a good thing. But after a couple of hours playing, Craig and I were ahead $65.00! Yay! But Tom and Dean were down about $70.00. So back to the campground. Then it was down to the beach. It's a bit of a hike, so Craig was to drive us down, drop us off, and find a parking place. Well, as we got back to the park, there were so many day users there, they had closed the road to the beach. So we had to take the trail from the campground. A bit of a hike, but not bad. The beach was full, but not packed because it's a huge beach.

They have this displayed at the beach. It's the Chicago skyline. On clear days, you can see Chicago across the lake.
Click on the above pic and look closely.


There's this very cool old Pavilion between the parking lot and the beach That's still used today.
The reason you see no people is I took a walk to the beach in the early morning while everyone was still asleep.





Now here's a couple of pics of the beach while we were there.
And after baking in the sun awhile and watching the sights, we hiked back to the campground where Tom and Dean fixed Shish Kabobs on the grill with Corn on the cob, and we brought Baked Beans. Then another camp fire in the evening.
We packed up Monday morning, said our goodbyes, and made it safely home. Another good trip!
