Observe the final offering on the sundae menu. In light of recent events it is a little close to home, to say the least. However, were it not for the fact that the dessert cost $30, and was therefore most likely quite large, I certainly would have sampled it.

After Pippi's little Lake escapade (see Pippi Hits the Beach), we ventured up to our house to take a peek.
Inside, it was toasty and warm. The light spilling in through the windows was stunning. It smelled of sand, sunscreen, and lake water: summer.
As you can see, Pippi made herself quite at home.
Yesterday, we decided to take a break from the city and drove up to Beverly Shores, Indiana, a town at the southern tip of Lake Michigan that we always frequent during the summer.
It was a beautiful day. Beautiful, but windy and freezing.
But even that didn't stop Pippi from making a beeline for the beach and jumping right into the water. Luckily, she realized pretty quickly that that was not such a smart idea and retreated from the waterfront a bit shaken.

Our thin, perfectly singed pies were placed atop large steel cans so as not to crowd our table unnecessarily.
This is one of the two pizzas we orders. A white pizza topped with basil and ricotta, it was amazingly light and delectable. I would probably choose this one over our margarita, though I admit it would be a very tough call.
