Lake Love Not Shore

Lakeside, with the wind in my face and totally happy :)

Hello and welcome once again to All Things Bright and Lovely.  For this post, I am offering a small selection of photos from my recent trip to Lake Michigan, which is about 3 hours north of my home.


Lakeshore Drive in the Windy City

The first stop was Chicago, Illinois, where we attended a concert by the magnificent Josh Groban.  This was a present for my ladyfriend's birthday and we both were completely amazed at his talent.



Sorry for the fuzzy picture.  More than camera could handle.

We then headed over to northern Indiana to the Dunes National Park and stopped at a few beachy type areas there to enjoy the beauty of the lake.









There were warning signs seen quite frequently.  The below one I did not have a clue so I was hoping I was not breaking a rule/endangering my life.  A helpful Instagram follower told me it had to do with water quality.  The only quality that mattered to me about it was that it was ice cold.




Now that sign I totally understood.  Heck, I could have been the model for that sign :)

There was also, as usual on any trip involving moi, a nice assortment of wonderful food.

A Super Treat sandwich from Lindos in Michigan City, Indiana.  A chicken patty topped with ham topped with corned beef and then melted swiss cheese.  Yum!!!

A Giordano's Chicago-style, stuffed-crust, deep-dish pizza.  If there is pizza in Heaven it is this pizza.

Superman ice cream, from Oink's Dairy Bar in New Buffalo, Michigan.  So sweet and tasty!

And I had to include the below shot of me in the foamiest hot tub ever.  I used it to make beards, hair, etc. and had such a fun time.
Look, I am Steve Martin

There are 2 more sets of photos from this trip, one a shopping montage and the other from our trip to the zoo in Chicago.  Coming soon as they say :)

So, for now, I will leave you with the below, made by me just for all of you.  Now likely erased by the wonderous winds, but never erased from my heart.  Thanks so much for visiting.  You are amazing and so appreciated :)

Well compared to Boston anything has to look good, but Chicago is a wonderful place to visit, as long as you do not stop as parking is 20 bucks a pop minimum. But worth it for sure if one can afford such things regularly.

It would be so lovely to hear from you. I promise to respond either here or on your blog.
