    DefaultWe're back! (Lots o picts)

    Oh how I wish I could retire! Had lots of fun and LOTS of walking. Happily, it rained a couple days, so I could do some dune walking.

    Sunrises could be silver...



    or a whole palette of colors!



    Our west property line. In the lower center of the pict there are some inter-dunal ponds, where Hoss had a lot of fun playing fetch after a 2 1/2 hour walk to Lake Michigan.





    Hoss saying..."Ummmm Mom, we left the water hours ago...it was back that-a way. Remember, I have WEBBED feet!"



    A few hours later, Hoss met his first porcupine! Fortunately, It barely "tickled" his lips. Once I saw what he was after I called and apparently it swiped at him at the same time. Most of the quills came out as he was runnig to me, and the rest were easily pulled out right then. an "easy" lesson learned (I hope!)

    Not a good picture, but Kodi sure had fun running up and down the dunes!



    Our morning walks were about 2 miles along Hamlin Lake's shoreline...makes for happy dogs. (Boy are they going to be disappointed now that we are home!)





    We even got some training in! Our ponds at the base of the dunes, and the wooded ponds make excellent training ponds

    How beautiful, and isn't it wonderful to be out with your dogs at dawn?

    Ludington. Our family has a couple hundred acres that boarder up against Stae Park land on the west, and National Forest (Wilderness area) on the North, and somewhere between 1/4 and 1/2 mile of lake frontage on Hamlin Lake.

    The only bummer are the tresspassers. We allowed people to beach on our dunes for many years, but in the last few years they took advantage and now think it is their right to be there. Most are nice about moving 300 yards down the shore to the state park property, but there are always a few that will argue or threaten me...idiots, they don't know me when I get pissed off, not even from the big fat guys that kick sand at me or get with in a few inches of my face and tell me I should go home to my husband and stay in my place. I can be such an asssss when I want to be! (I made sure I yelled at these snotty people that they were the reason that everyone was getting puished off the beach..that I do not tolerate beligerant epople.etc., etc., )

    Tresspassers right next to the Private Property sign!

    Karen, what an awesome place to go with the dogs (or without, too). I cannot believe some trespassers will argue with you. > Hopefully they at least pick up their trash.
