Lots of Sand

Today our friend Don drove us to Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes National Lakeshore. http://www.nps.gov/slbe/index.htm 

It's hard to tell from the photos just how steep this 450 foot sand dune is! Many intrepid souls make their way down to the water rather quickly and literally crawl back up on hands and knees. We were quite content to stay up top and watch. 

The view of the Manitou Passage and Manitou Islands is amazing!

We were happy to spend today ashore and avoid the 10 foot waves out on the Lake. Hopefully the strong winds will subside tomorrow.
