I had a beautiful weekend of outdoor adventures with friends. It started with a trip to Michigan’s countryside.

Here we picked our weight in blueberries and enjoyed the sunshine.

Then we headed for the dunes and the Midwest’s great ocean: Lake Michigan. Races were bravely won on these dunes (not by me).

And of course we stuck our feet in the sand and enjoyed the water. If you bury your feet enough and concentrate really hard, you can feel your heartbeat in your feet.
