the “other” side of Lake Michigan

It felt so strange for me to view Lake Michigan from Wisconsin. I understand conceptually and geographically that the State of Michigan does not own Lake Michigan, and that Illinois and Indiana also border this Great Lake. It just seems odd to my Michigan-born mind that Lake Michigan could be viewed from any place other than Michigan. Juvenile, I know. Anyway, I learned this August that Lake Michigan looks about the same from Wisconsin as it does from Michigan.

Kind B&B owner Steve indicated that we’d find a pier at Sheboygan, Wisconsin, where we could visit the “other” side of Lake Michigan. So we detoured a bit on our way home, discovering Deland Park.

Rebecca suggested this boulder should join Grandma’s rock collection, but we figured such a souvenir might not fit in the Pacifica with our luggage. Sorry, Grandma!

I realized Rebecca was still wearing her AirVenture admission bracelet. You can probably take that off, now, Flygirl:)

Driving north along Wisconsin’s coastline, we stopped briefly at Silver Creek Park in Manitowoc for another Lake Michigan view.
