Michiana …..

We arrived at Bear Cave Campground on May 1st.  (yes there really is -maybe- a bear cave on site, get to pay $3.00 to tour it which we haven’t done yet.) 

Rather small, very rustic campground, full hook ups, very green, nestled next to the St. Joseph river. 

Most days it was cloudy and lots of rain. 

But the sun decided to shine the day we left! 

So many dogwoods around the area……. I’ve missed this springtime beauty. 

The following Sunday we took a day trip….we were so close to Lake Michigan I had to see the beaches in the area.  I love the beach! Any time of year.  
Silver beach park, St Joseph, MI 

A working lighthouse, one of many in Michigan. 

Sand dunes 

Coast Guard 

Cold and windy that morning 

After lunch we headed to South Bend, IN to walk around Notre Dame U.   

Home of the football legend Knute Rockne 

That little green speck in the photo is the field….. this is the closest we could get.  The whole stadium is fenced off, looks like they’re getting ready for the coming season.  

It’s a beautiful campus 


Administration building 

I love these doors in the administration building.   

Norte Dame Basilica of the Sacred Heart

Pipe organ, 2929 pipes.  

Lady Chapel with Bernini Altar

Our Lady of Fatima Chapel 

Beautiful stained glass windows 

There are over 1600 relics in the Basilica from over 800 saints.   The remains of St Severa are below this wax figurine of her.  

No matter what religion you adhere to, the artwork here is wondrous. 

Very glad we decided to drop in this museum.   A wondrous collection of ancient to modern art.

    1. Yeah……I’m constantly taking pictures of old buildings…..unfortunately a lot don’t turn out too well. But me too, they’re really cool. So far, so good! 😄. Hope all is well!
