Short trip to the west coast (of Michigan, that is)

Last weekend we took a short trip to the west side of the state. We decided to stay at Buttersville. It’s a campground right on Lake Michigan outside of Ludington. Elmer (our beloved pup) loves swimming and all things outdoors in general (what dog doesn’t?). We chose Buttersville because they allow dogs on the beach  (the State campgrounds don’t!) We love our visits to the west side of the state- there is something so captivating about the sand dunes and lake Michigan is breath taking!
