Weekend Up North

My family spends every other weekend and our trailer over by Lake Michigan. This used to be a place I went all the time as a child, but as I got older my family moved onto different hobbies and we stayed away from this gorgeous area. Last year my dad and mom decided to buy a Camping Trailer and they got a seasonal spot in a campground in Mears MI, or as everyone calls it Silver Lake. Silver Lake has a lot to offer. It has the gorgeous views of Lake Michigan, the quiet tranquility of an undiscovered boardwalk town, and the thrilling dips of the Sand Dunes.

This past weekend it was my middle sisters 13th birthday and her favorite thing in the world is cruising through the Silver Lake Sand Dunes. My dad has a 2012 Ford Raptor that he has souped up to be one of the baddest vehicles that hit the sand (yes i’m biased). Nothing makes my little sister happy like gliding across the sand and flying through the air. I have to admit she is far more fearless then I am, because while my need for speed is great my concern for the well being of people in smaller vehicles out weighs it.

We spent three nights at our trailer this weekend, hit lots of sand and for my first time this year I took a shallow dip in Lake Michigan. I thought I would share some of my pictures here because I took a lot and what is the use of a picture stuck on my phone for no one to see?
