It seemed like it was going to be a nice weekend, so we headed out to Mt. Baldy in Michigan City, which is also called The Dunes. However, once we arrived it started pouring down rain. So much for a fun beach weekend. Hmph!
Mt. Baldy is called The Dunes because of it's massive sand dunes. We used to have to climb these steep sand dunes to get to the beach:
Can you imagine climbing that with all your gear just to get to the beach!? It was exhausting! Over the years the sand dunes have started deteriorating, so they built a walkway to the beach and closed off walking the dunes.
The water was freezing, so we didn't swim, but it's always nice to walk the shoreline.
And you get a great view of the lighthouse down the way that is located on the next beach over. We didn't go to that one because we didn't feel like paying the $7 parking when we weren't even going to swim though. Mt. Baldy is a free parking beach.
What were your weekend plans? Did you go to the beach too?
