Ludington North Breakwater Light

Bastien is our little lighthouse enthusiast. In fact for completing first grade so successfully I got him a book on Michigan lighthouses and the summer adventures started mapping themselves from there.

Of course since there was a lighthouse (though not really earning the official “house” suffix) within 10 miles of our weekend camping trip, we had to check it out. I don’t know why lighthouses are always invigorating and captivating, but for some reason they just are. Maybe because they’re such a quick capture. Here we are, official climbers to the top.

Backcountry (Nordhouse Dunes)

We went the kind of camping where you wear everything on your back for a couple miles. With a few kids. It was impressive, so be impressed. Right now I’m enjoying the luxury of my own bed. It is almost as comfortable as a hammock but doesn’t have the same charm. Anyway my point (as usual) is that I’m exhausted. So for right now I’ll just show a couple pictures with a promise to circle back on this topic soon. Pictures one and two are most of everything being carried on backs. These will be followed by pictures stuff carried on backs that didn’t actually get used. Note to self: when you’re going to sand dunes, you absolutely do not need to pack socks. Period.
