is for the Dunes.

We just got back from spending time in the Dunes -the Indiana Dunes. We grew up in the Indiana Dunes on Lake Michigan, spending lots of time at the beach! I think I will always love that beach above all others because I have so many fond memories of our childhood there! Swimming, walking on the beach, bonfires at night, collecting rocks along the shore - I love it there!
Rach actually met her husband at the beach when she was in middle school! His family has a weekend house there and they met when he was visiting from Chicago. That is where their story began and now they have three beautiful kids - Bea, Sol, and Eloise!

My beautiful niece, Bea!

Sol teaching Harley to swim!

Eloise makes a smiley face!

The view of the dunes and the beach! Even though I live by Lake Michigan in Evanston, coming to the Dunes in Indiana is so different-so serene and peaceful!

Rach's in-laws have this great gazebo attached to their house-a nice spot to have meals and still see and hear the beach - without the bugs!

The view of the lake and the trees! As kids we ran around in the woods and the dunes everyday for fun!

The stairs to the lake! I miss it already!

  2. It is beautiful there...I agree with Linda, a perfect summer retreat! It looks like you had an amazing time. It is always fun to reflect back to childhood days. Have a good weekend.
