    Michigan shore of Lake Michigan

    Last weekend we stayed at a friends cottage near the Michigan shore of Lake Michigan so I thought I'd post some pictures.
    The first ones are the beach near the cottage, ending with one of me my wife took with my winter beard started. Then there's one of a very old mixed bread Terrier named Louise who was also there for the weekend. The rest of the pictures were taken at a very large sand dune that we were all crazy enough to climb (three steps up, two steps down!)

    It's hard to believe that just a lake the water is so blue it looks more like the ocean and with the huge sand dune that has trees on it. Lovely pictures Glenn

    Chicago is on the Great Lakes between the US and Canada. I traveled to Valperaiso Indiana when I was with Kaiser. Drove to Chicago to visit family, got trapped in Lower Whacker............... what a place, wound up in the stockyards.... and it was bloody cold!

    Tbolt, don't know exactly where that was taken but the power boat might have been me. I was cruzing the lake along the Mich coast two weekends ago. headed toward Sleeping Bear Dunes. bit further up is Peninsula State Park which is exactly 45 degrees N latitude

    Thanks guys, It was a nice relaxing weekend

    That's where I'm working now, Lower Wacker Drive. Completely rebuilding it. It won't look like the Blues Brothers movie any more!

    It sure was! I did it once. Once was enough!

    Sounds like the right weekend, we were there the 9th to the 11th, but I think you were a lot further north. We were near Harbert Michigan, just over the Indiana border, and the Dune was at Warren Dunes State Park, just a little further north.

    Didn't have a thermometer with me but it was a little chilly, but not cold enough for us not to spend a lot of time in it. The water was shallow real far out, I went out a good 200 yards before it was up to my neck, and all pure sand!

    Last February My wife and I snook away from the kids and went to San Juan for a long weekend. I had just bought my Olympus E-620 so I took a lot of pics and some of them turned out pretty good.

    Starts out with a lot of shots at the fortress outside Old San Juan, then a cemetery next to the fort. A few shots in Old San Juan, and the rest are around our hotel, including some great shots from our room window. We use the hammock shot as the wallpaper on our home PC.

    Four days was way too short!!!
