August 30,Sunday, Today we leave St.Ingrace, a beautiful waterfront town. Crossing the bridge with the airstream...Hurray the rain and Wind has stopped!! Easy drive over the bridge and down the west coast on Rt 22 of Michigan looking for LightHouses. We head for Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park. We arrive about 3-4 pm and check in at DH Day Campground, we get the last site that has electric, there is plenty of other sites though. We stay here for $6.00(Golden Access Card) & $5.00/electric fee, we have a nice shaded sight. After setting up we went for a drive on Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive thru the dunes with 10 stopping places along the way. At stop #9 there is a breath taking view of the sand dunes 450 feet above the lake. At the top there is a sign telling you to be careful of the steep incline down to the lake. Many kids are sitting on the side of hill watching the lake water. Wow..what a View and place to take pictures. We are told come back at sunset..8:30 pm to see it. So we go back to camp for supper and relax. At 7:30 we drive back...WOW...The sunset is about 1/2 hour to drop and the sky is red already, many have tripods and cameras ready for that great shot. This was the BEST SUNSET we saw all By 8:45 it is dark...zzzzzz
