Little Girls Point Gogebic County Park in Ironwood, MI
Little Girls Point is a beautiful beach on the shores of Lake Superior. Supposedly named for a Chippewa Indian girl who drowned there in the 1800's.
We have camped there on numerous occasions when our kids were younger; back when we did a lot of camping trips. Little Girls Point was one of our favorite places to park the camper for a week or two.
This beach is known for finding agates. Staci easily had over a dozen of them by the end of the day ... me zero. I wish I had gotten a picture of all of them.
same rocks flipped over on the other side ...
It's only rocky a few yards out ... then all of a sudden ... if you're not careful (and have bum knees) a rolling wave will come in and you'll find yourself a bit deeper than intended :) It drops off that fast.
It was so refreshing!
We laid on the waters edge and agate hunted and did some swimming for a long stretch of the afternoon. This is my kind of day.
Bailey enjoyed tossing bread to the sea gulls. I enjoyed watching her having so much fun.
I marked the spot where we were when we left ... the old Indian way.
On the way home we passed this place. I told the kids I was there once when it was called Roy's Place, or something like that, and after one day of meeting me they changed the name. LOL
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
