My parents retired and moved to the Upper Peninsula many, many years ago. So my family has been in love with the area. So much so for one member, my son Patrick. He went to NMU and never came home.
One of my favorite places is AuSable Lake. To the left of this photo is a sand dune which is covered in grass. When the kids were little there was no guard rail. This is a drop off lake. We would climb the sand dune then run down the hill, over the road, and dive in the lake at the drop off.
We left there and headed to Grand Marais.
Our final destination was 12 Mile Beach. You drive down this old road that runs along Lake Superior. We found a spot to pull over and this is what we saw.
We climbed down the sand hill to the beach.
The beach is covered in driftwood that is thrown up on land during the many storms. The shoreline is covered in stones and rocks. We have spent many hours looking for Agates.
We had a great time. We were so tired from all the walking on the beach but it was a good tired.
This morning when we got up it was a shock. The temperature was 53 and its overcast. So I plan on working on some applique. Tomorrow is supposed to be warmer so we can go do some more exploring.
Thanks for stopping by.
