Black and White Sunday: The Friendly Beach

The friendly beach

My brother and I took a side trip to Michigan to see the Warren Dunes where we vacationed once as kids.  I wasn’t inspired to return.  I’m sure it must have better days.  This was a bad beach day.  Click on widget to participate in Paula’s challenge.

    • My brother and I went back to visit this October. It was marvelous. Many parts haven’t changed. Our little street where we lived the longest has old trees where it had bare lots when we lived there. The houses are still tiny, and the lots huge. Indianapolis in Oct. is lovely. Yes, and we both look midwestern. You get the midwestern out of a person, even if they live in CA! 🙂

  1. My guess is that a few clods let their dogs do their “business” wherever they please, then leave others to deal with it. A few folks demand action, and local government passes a heavy-handed rule. Hence, you end up with a rule that forbids animals on the beach. I don’t understand the part about the grills, but I guess it’s the same thing, with people leaving a mess when they’re done.

  2. I understand the bit about barbecue, but why doggies are not allowed – not that I have any to bring 😦 I am grateful for your participation Marsha, and I like your b&w beach.

    • Thanks! When I saw the sign, I thought it seemed so unfriendly. South, just a few miles, Hoosiers pride themselves on their hospitality. Wolverines are obviously not so inclined. 🙂

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
