The Indiana Dunes National Lake Shore! This is our old "stomp'n ground" when we were growing up, and teens. Any given weekend you could have found my baby-oil slathered body soaking up the sun on these beaches.

Kirk, Cara and I are heading out this afternoon, spending a night in Elgin, IL with my "baby" sister, her hubby and their punks....then leaving after an early breakfast to the beach.
The beach is just one of many perks on this trip. We are also going to the wedding of some long time friends daughter (over over 30 years --who we spent many beach days with).
