We drove down to the lakeshore.  It’s the first time any of us have been to the Great Lakes.  It feels like being on the ocean, but there are no waves, which makes the experience odd:

We left the lake shortly before sunset and drove east to overnight at the Walmart of Michigan City, Indiana.  See the trip map for today’s drive and our current location.
