I am back from a week vacation with my family on the coast of Michigan Lake. We were camping in an actual tent and sleeping on the ground in sleeping bags. Campfire everynight to toast marshmallows
This is one of our favorite places to visit. It was a dream because there were few mosquitoes, very low humidity, and cool weather. I just hate camping in hot, humid weather!!!!!
There are plenty of trails to hike and bike. The kids were content with spending most of the time on the beach!!
The white sandy beaches are all natural! The weather was perfect except for one day of rain and that day was spent in Chicago. You can catch a commuter train close by the camp site into the city and it is about a 1.5 hour ride.
Yard Sale Goodies
These a few small samples of some the goodies I found at a HUGE yardsale prior to leaving for our camping trip. My brother-in-law lives in Indianapolis and his neighborhood hosts this 2 day yardsale that includes 250+ families. They bring in food vendors and port-a-pots, so it is a big event for their area. It is one of my favorite events to attend every year!! My big find was this guy who guts these old homes and then sells everything he removes from these jobs. I mean he has a huge semi full of this stuff parked outside the house he sells at. Needless to say, I was in heaven!
