Camping @ Lake Michigan

When we got to the the camp­site, the first thing I saw was a chip­munk! Please see my last post for some photos.

The next day (after eat­ing some highly colored break­fast cer­eal) we went to Big Sable* Point light­house on the edge of lake Michigan and walked along the beach to find a swim­ming spot without too many dead fish. We swam in the lake for a while but we couldn’t go very deep because of currents.

In the even­ing we swam in a smal­ler (but still very big) lake next to the camp­site called lake Hamlin.

The next day we went on a walk around the islands in lake Hamlin and saw some trees that had been gnawed and felled by beavers. We then set off on the long car ride back stop­ping on the way at an ice cream shop that was in an old rail­way caboose.
