A Week of Fences: Day 3

 

I drove over to Warren Sand Dunes in Michigan yesterday. I used to go there as a kid quite frequently and it has been a few years since I've been here. I took this photo for my friend Renee who spent time here many years ago as well! It looks EXACTLY the same!

 

There were only a few people in the park since it was about 20° with the wind chill and then they departed soon after; and I had the park to myself! I spent three hours hiking and even hiked up to the top of the largest sand dune (Tower Hill), which rises 240 feet above Lake Michigan.

 

When we were kids, we'd hike to the top and we'd roll back down, reaching the bottom much quicker of course and looking like giant sugar cookies! We would do this repeatedly, with dips in the lake in between. I didn't partake in this activity yesterday!

 

Today is pie baking day, and our Thanksgiving will be spent with family. I pick up Jack from the train today and her dad is spending the night at his brothers to help get everything going (his job being the turkey)! Rachel will be spending the day with friends in San Antonio and I am sad she won't be with us but we plan on Skyping with her tomorrow!

Happy Bokeh Wednesday & Happy Thanksgiving to all of my wonderful Flickr Friends in the U.S.

I figured not many will be around tomorrow!
