Saturday’s class was in Ludington, a pretty town right on Lake Michigan. One of Ludington’s biggest draws is a car ferry, the SS Badger, which makes the 4-hour trip across the lake to Manitowoc, WI.
In the dune area of Michigan, this area’s coast offers postcard-worthy beach views. The lighthouse in the picture is at the end of a ½ mile pier. This time it was a poignant walk since just last week, a young man was swept off the pier and never found.
As always, the pier was loaded with fishermen, hoping for the big catch. I didn’t see a solitary fish among the huge salmon nets, but they all seemed content just to have a line in the water.
The class went great and I’ll schedule a return trip for the spring!
