Old Postcard Wednesday--Greetings from (refreshing) Kentland, Indiana

As made clear in the map above there is no sandy beach in Kentland, Indiana. My guess is that this bathing beauty might be enjoying a day at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore on Lake Michigan, some 80 miles to the north or another beach on that great lake going east along the shore.

I had never heard of Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and it does look appealing, like a place I would enjoy seeing some day. Click here for the website to see if you might like to plan a visit there too.
