A Short Getaway

 We just got back from a short 5 day vacation up north.  Squeezed in right before the start of school. (today)
 First stop:  Grand Marais and the Au Sable Dunes on Lake Superior.  4 Kids and Mr. Riley climbed down to meet the waves.
Baby Girl and I hung out at the top.
The joy of sliding down big sand hills.
Next stop: Lake Michigan.  I'm pretty sure I have a picture of WD like this from each year we've gone.  I should line them all up.
The lake is something like 15 feet below 'normal'.  Makes for lots of warm, shallow water to play in, but interestingly not much beach.  The sand is full of vegetation. 
I just love watching the waves come together over the sand bars.
