After dinner last night, we decided to drive out to the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore for a bit of fun until sunset. Week nights are not crowded at all - even at the popular beaches.
We came across several small toads under a log right at the waters edge. When the waves moved the log, they jumped out and into the high surf. Mike and Chris ran after one and finally caught up with it several hundred feed down the beach. It was getting pounded by the surf, so they basically rescued it.
Afterward, we found all the others basking in the sun covered with sand. The wind kept blowing tiny grains of sand onto their wet bodies; making it difficult for them to clear their eyes.
