Yesterday we saw some farms in Michigan, and today we saw Lake Michigan. 

I love how picturesque the barns are.  So calming too, I can't really put it into words but something about them makes you want to gaze with fondness.

Barns near Saline, Michigan


Lake Michigan and North Point LIghthouse in St. Joseph:  


Chickaming Township shores:  

They all call it a beach, but I can't bring myself to do it.  The Californian in me refuses, ahaha . . .

And a little magic in a yard near Plymouth, Michigan.

Oh man, such beautiful pictures. This part of America definitely has its own beauty to it, even if we always complain about the crappy weather. Did you manage to find any of the barns in northern Indiana that have advertisements and pictures on their roofs when you went through? =3 Also, those gnomes are adorable! XD

Aren't they? I was about to get closer, but at that very moment the homeowner pulled up into the drive.

And thanks, that means a lot from a Midwest resident! We didn't see too much of Indiana, we only passed through briefly during a very wet and grey day. But it is oh so green, everywhere.

I'll keep an eye out though, today we are heading across the northern part of Illinois; on our way to ye ol' Mississippi River (and hopefully a steamboat ride \o/).

Me too, me too! But this was actually just a really big lake; in fact, part of the largest continental fresh-water lake in the world, Michigan-Huron. <3

Still reminded me of the sea, which I adore.

That sunset is beautiful, and there is something very enchanting about red barns. I don't get it, I just feel it. Great photos.

XD I take it you approve of the last post? Yeah, I ought to have given Lake Michigan a brofist for sure. . .

Right? A person just can't look away from a good red barn.
