Weekly Photo Challenge: Infinite

Today Randy and I made our way north to Michigan to the Warren Dunes State Park.  I would describe it as infinitely blustery!  It was infinitely uninhabited.

The pier acts as a windbreak.

The water stretched infinitely far, but I didn’t venture close enough to get a good picture of how unending Lake Michigan appeared because the wind blew so hard that it seemed like it was sprinkling even as far away as I stood.

I got a kick out of the red flag.  No swimming today.  DUH!  Infinitely stupid!

This poor bird didn’t budge when I crouched to take its picture.  In fact after standing with the wind ruffling its feathers, it hobbled over to me.  I think it wanted to cuddle.  I wanted to take it home.  It was warm just two days ago, so I imagine he didn’t listen to the weather report and was taken by surprise at the sudden change of temperatures.

He looks like he is surrounded by an infinite amount of sand.  In reality he hovers with me under the cover of the abandoned restroom building.

There was an infinite stretch of sand.  You can see the barriers stretching along the coastline, but they didn’t stop the buildup of mounds of sand across from the parking lot.  Wind blew streams of sand across the parking lot where they sometimes got stuck into little drifts.

The dunes are in back of the parking lot, but I think one was beginning to form around our car.

The road in and out of the park looked infinite, and the colors were infinitely beautiful.

Randy and I had visited the Lake Michigan coast infinitely long ago – about 50 years or so, and we both wondered if this was the place.  The season was July (I don’t say that entirely in jest), and we swam in the lake, but I remember everything was cold where we were in Michigan – even in July.

I’ll leave you with one infinitely funny sign.  No glass containers OR animals?  What’s the connection?  Is it an either or choice?

  1. I like the little bird on the sand. What a great time you are having! I also like your header picture until I looked more closely and noticed where you are sitting. 😦

    • Yes, we are o the Skydeck of the Willis Tower in Chicago – used to be Sears Tower. Every day we do one or two fun things, then come “home,” fix dinner, and write or catch up on news or stories. It’s the first time we’ve ever done this for this length of time – ever.

  2. Loved this, looks like you are having a grand time in spite of the weather! I’m also glad you didn’t have any “glass animals” with you on the beach! 😛

    • Yes, and there were so many guards there enforcing this rule!!! We also didn’t have any glass containers containing animals. I wonder if that would outlaw lightning bugs? Bummer! 🙂

  3. Brrr…Too cold for the beach or the lake. But – for a visit & something I haven’t seen in a long time – I would have gone too. Hey – on the upside – you had the place to yourselves I bet! 🙂

    • Sitting in the car, it was wonderful. Just minutes away driving out the driveway wasn’t too bad either. Lake Michigan had a marked influence on the weather! 🙂
