While visiting a friend in Merrillville, Indiana we took a drive to Gary to see where Michael was born. Across the street from the house locals have souvenirs stalls set up with various memorabilia for sale. There is no tour of the house and it remains unoccupied and cordoned off with a police tape. The neighborhood remains very much the same where the houses have the same design. In the back there is a school not sure if he attended that school at any time.
In the front of the yard there is a light post with many signatures.
We also visited the sand dune Mount Baldy in Indiana Dunes National Park located on the Southern shores of Lake Michigan. The lakeshore view offers a good view of Lake Michigan. There is concern that Baldy is disappearing more quickly than expected as a result of visitors climbing pushing the sand in another direction; to help preserve the dune it is fenced off, some trees were planted and preventing visitors from climbing.
We took a Buick stop in Ohio to view the Brandywine Falls.
Making use of this stay at home time going through the pictures and pulled out my reel projector did not realize had so many reels so I will be viewing them. Be safe out there.
