We left Frankfort under motor and almost no wind, which we expected, but as time went on the wind picked up enough to do a little sailing. We were bound for South Manitou Island for the night. The only problem is that pets are not allowed on the island, that's a little bit of a conundrum for us so Ron came up with the idea to swing by Sleeping Bear Dunes and let Lex play on one of the dog beaches there then go to South Manitou for the night...genius!
|Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes...|
true size not captured in picture ;)
|Yes, this IS Lake Michigan!|
|Playing on the beach|
|Yup, STILL Lake Michigan|
|Very pristine nature on the island|
|The one thing Ron wanted to see, the Old Growth Cedars|
Don't ask, I have no idea where this came from...
|Shipwreck just offshore|
|Looking from South Manitou to Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes|
Still Lake Michigan (haha)
Also, sorry all you get is Ron's ugly mug in most of the shots, that's what happens when I'm the one with the camera 90% of the time ;) We'll work on it!
