Progress toward our first trip

It feels so refreshing when you start to make progress toward your goal. Over the weekend we started to add our personal touches to Stevie as we realized that our first trip is less than a month away.

Ready…or Not?

Imagine that first hot day of Spring day walking along the beach at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. The sun is warming the sand as the day progresses.
