A couple of weeks ago, my Shug and I took off for Michigan City, Indiana.
They have a beach on Lake Michigan
an Outlet Mall
and a casino with a hotel to stay in.
Our first stop was dinner. We ate at the restaurant above...the food was mediocre, but the view was good!
We went to the beach, but it was chilly out that day.
Look in my sunglasses - you can see my hands taking our picture! Funny!
Are you tired of harbor pictures?
You can't take a bad muffin and latte' picture either! We went to this coffee shop the next morning and I LOVED IT!
This is SWAMP land. Who knew? I didn't know we had such stuff in Indiana. I thought it was all in the South!
Here's the thing about these pictures. This place is all about wildlife. Bees, birds, butterflies, etc. need messy, non-golf course type yards to survive. The mind-set is starting to change a little, because people are getting worried that they will have to use a paint brush to pollinate their apple trees like they do in China. Keep using chemicals and it will happen. I can't say it enough. That chemical does not know the difference between a good bug and a bad bug. It kills them ALL.
I bought socks, Dave bought a straw hat. Seriously....we stopped at a place like this and bought socks and a hat. Weird.
Then, on the way home I saw Broken Arrow Campground!
As a kid we used to camp at this place a lot.
So I turned around and took a tour.
I wouldn't have recognized it, of course, I was too young to remember details.
get your singing voice on.....sing with me now......

GASP! More harbor pictures! How'd they get down here......I might just print some and frame them or something....
there's a port on a Western bay....
and it serves a hundred ships a day
lonely sailors pass the time away
talking about their home....
Speaking of home.....check out this shower in our hotel room! I have stayed at this hotel a few times, but NEVER on the "spa" side, until this time. Laa teeee da!
PS - Found a peanut found a peanut found a peeeeaaanut just now.....
