Back Home Again in Indiana

Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.  July, 2002.

Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. July, 2002.

Another trip that Betsy and I took in 2002 was a trip to my hometown in Indiana.  I lived in the town of Crown Point for six years, but when I was in the first grade my parents moved to a small farm outside of Crown Point.  I lived there until I went off to college.

While in Crown Point I was able to show Betsy the homes in which I lived as well as the schools I attended.  We also went to the Lake County Fairgrounds in Crown Point, where I exhibited livestock as a member of 4-H.

I also took Betsy to my alma mater, Manchester College.  Although there are several new buildings on campus, many of the old buildings that I remember are still there.

Since Betsy is such a football fan I had to take her to Notre Dame.  We couldn’t get inside the stadium, but we were able to see much of the campus, including the golden dome.

On our last day in Indiana we went to the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and hiked along some of the dunes..  My family used to go to the dunes before they were a national park, and I was glad to see that they were much as I remembered them.
