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.
