On the beach, Indiana Dunes
We've done it many times before, but it's still wonderful. Driving between Cleveland and Chicago, about an hour east of Chicago there's a turnoff for Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. I'm always tempted, and when the weather and our time schedule permit, I swing off the interstate and head north to the lake. Here's why:
Lake Michigan is a jewel-like blue. Chicago appears on the horizon like the Emerald City. The sand is warm and you feel far away from the city.
The wind was strong, whipping a continuous shower of sand against us as we lay there in the sun. I dozed for awhile, waking to think that if we stayed long enough the sand would turn us into another dune on the beach. We drove back to Cleveland instead.
