Got away for a whole day last weekend up to the sand dunes at Silver Lake. First we took a leisurely dune buggy ride through a protected area on Lake Michigan, then we climbed the dunes in the state park and watched the crazy drivers with their souped up buggy machines come flying over the hill. I found this rusty thing by the lighthouse and hubby disillusioned me of my romantic notions of shipwrecks and fair maidens by telling me it was a recent car part. Bummer. Then I saw this beautiful tree shadowed in the sand. Right after I took the photo, a water bottle came tumbling to the base of the tree. A couple of tourists followed, but kept on going, leaving the bottle there.
