Far away from Washington,

where ordinary people work and love, 
I had a long weekend. 

 It didn't start off well.
Driving through several waves of storms,
after a full day of work,
was extremely tiring.

I got as far as my energy could take me -
and then stopped for the night.

And, although the next day was overcast 
and sporadically rainy,
I was in a lovely place to spend a few hours
before driving the last 'leg' of my trip.

 Indiana Dunes State Park
Just a few hours away from home -
and across Lake Michigan from Chicago.

You can't see Chicago?

 Let me help you!
 It was just the break I needed!
