January 22, 2012 Winter Along Lake Michigan
This has been the warmest winter I can remember. It's been above freezing most of the days and there hasn't been a bitterly cold (less than 10 degrees) day yet. So I really enjoyed the snow that fell this weekend. Today I took the dogs to Lake Michigan's Lakeview Beach at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.
As you can see, the shelf ice is practically non existent.
We walked west toward Dunbar Beach...
...then east toward Central Beach. Somewhere near Beverly Shores we came across boats in winter storage on the beach.
I'll admit the pictures didn't capture the isolated winter look I wanted...
...so here's a portrait of the Fanook enjoying a winter day at the beach.
