However when we got there we parked near to Lake Michigan and decided to check out the beach. We were wrapped up nice and warm complete with long undies and hats.
There wasn't any more snow on the ground but there was lots of ice especially where the lake meets the shore.
We could see the ice breaking and hear it creaking even when it looked completely solid.
There were only one or two big chunks of ice out further.
We managed to get close enough to take a peek in a couple of the holes. We made sure the ice was really, really solid before stepping on it!
It was a lovely walk and such unexpected beauty to be seen.
