Last weekend, I lucked out again with last-minute availability at another popular beachfront park--this time on the Wisconsin side at Point Beach State Forest near Two Rivers just north of Manitowoc (where the ferry from Ludington arrives). Most campsites in this park were huge and quite private. There was also a large, sandy dog beach just south of the lighthouse right in the park (quite a few nice dog beaches on the Wisconsin side of Lake Michigan). Millie had a great time!
No 9:30pm sunsets on this side of the Lake, though. We had to wake up just after 5:00am to catch this beautiful sunrise:
We were less than an hour away from Door County, so on Saturday, I decided to drive up to Whitefish Dunes State Park to photograph it's spectacular rocky shoreline-- really quite unusual for Lake Michigan. I had no idea this kind of scenery could be found so close to home.
Thanks to Jeremy from the T@B forum for tipping me off to this great park!
