Where in the World Wednesday: New Buffalo, MI
Today I’m participating in Where in the World Wednesday, the brainchild of Classy in Philadelphia.
I grew up in an area lovingly dubbed “Michiana.” It was a cutesy play-on-words combining Michigan and Indiana. Growing up, going to the beach didn’t mean an ocean. It meant Lake Michigan. Who cares that BP dumps into it or that its coasts are lined with nuclear plants? Lake Michigan was all we had in Michiana so that’s where we spent our weekends.
Early on in my collegiate career, my high school best friend and I decided to extend our lunch date and skip our afternoon classes. It was a beautiful day for late fall. Who really needed Intro to Italian, anyways? We drove up to our favorite beach in New Buffalo, climbed the rocks, dipped our feet in the cool lake water, and found Pokemon cards in the sand. We were the only people there. I’d say the day was a success and much more enjoyable than an afternoon of Italian.
