In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Michigan City, Indiana

I went to Michigan City this past weekend with my sister, sister-in-law, and three of my nieces. We spent the morning shopping because of a storm, but the clouds disappeared, the sun came out and we headed for the beach.

Lake Michigan is like an ocean, without the salt, and it's only a couple of hours away.

I don't know why we don't go there more often.

This is Sarah, who is six. Sarah is most definitely a girly girl.

This is Taylor who is seven and she likes to be active. Gotta be going somewhere or doing something all the time.

This is Emily, who is ten. She prefers to be alone, not being bothered by the other two. She likes to draw and sing.

This is me, relaxing with my crocheting. Gotta get this granny stripe blankey done!

This is a sandman (he took a fall!) that my sister-in-law, Lorri, made while relaxing on the beach.

The girls trying to pose for Aunt Cindy.

It was all fun and games

until a big wave came

and Sarah got mad!

It was a nice girly weekend away.


  1. Love Michigan City!! We go there often! We also go one more exit to New Buffalo, MI which is absolutely gorgeous too!!

  2. Man, here I live in Michigan and have not went to the beach not once this year. I was just moaning about it a short time ago to hubs. Your blanket is looking great! I printed out the instructions the other day for future use.

  3. Oh my gosh that looks like fun! I miss the beach so much. I'm glad you had fun. :) And I'd take an ocean without salt any day! :)

  4. Hi Cindy Bee;) I was very happy to find your blog today. I live in South Florida and one these days I would love to become a beekeeper. I've read your blog this afternoon and look forward to more posts.

  5. Hi Robyn,
    I have never been to New Buffalo. I'll have to try it out sometime. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Brenda --- GET TO THE BEACH before it's too late. You live in Michigan you are surrounded by water - gooooo!

    Posy Linda - I'm glad you found my blog too and welcome to blogland. I will visit your blog again soon. I have been so busy that I haven't had much time for blogging, but my camera is full of pics for later. BTW - the only thing that scares me about beekeeping in Florida are the africanized bees. Do some research. They scare me.

    We did have a lot of summer fun last weekend and this week and I'm very tired. I feel like I'm cramming a lot in two weeks, but the boys I watch and my nieces all go back to school in a couple of weeks and I want them to have fun summer memories.

  6. Hi Cindy Bee: I was unable to leave this comment on the putting corn post for some reason or another. What a great idea. I've never seen it done that way. Looks worth a try. Have a great everything!!!!

  7. Nice to meet you too Cindy. I was born and raised (until around 1977)in Michigan City and it was a magical place to grow up in. I have one site called "Bekkie In Wonderland" I've blogged on forever dedicated to my love of Alice In Wonderland but wanted to blog about my home town so I decided to start another based on growing up in the Wonderland of my home town in Indiana. It's called "Diary Of A Mad Woman" and maybe you'd like to check it out. I just got it started but it's growing more everyday. I'm glad you enjoyed your trip to my home town, it was quite a unique place to grow up in not to exclude having the South Shore to Chicago! On a good day you can see Chicago across the lake from the lighthouse, Gary too. Have a great weekend!

  8. BTW my "Diary Of A Mad Hoosier" is closing due to the time I spend on "Bekkie In Wonderland." Next Summer I'm going to visit Michigan City again. How's the bee's?
