    Weko Beach

    by staindesign Written Jul 2, 2008

    This is a great beach that is located about 2.5 miles north of Warren Dunes State Park. This beach is open for the public in the small town of Bridgeman. It has a restaurant in the beach house and a fantastic board walk. There is also a large sand dune to climb, it isn't as tall at Tower hill but it is still nice. I believe it costs about $5 one time entrance or free if you are entering by foot or bike.

    This is a the best beach to visit in winter. Because you can drive down right next to the beach to see the sunset without getting out of your car!

    Cook Nuclear Plant or AEP

    by staindesign Written Jul 2, 2008

    This place is great, i know there are many mixed feelings about nuclear power. But this place offers a great experience to learn about it. When I was a kid you could just show up and enter the exhibit at the power plant, but now from the web site you are suppose to call and schedule a time. They show a couple of movies about how nuclear power is made and then a cool over view of the plant itself. The one part I've always remember is how they cool the reactors with piping in the cold water from the Lake and then pumping it hot back into the lake after it cools the reactors. Well I'm not a scientist, but maybe that is the reason why the fish die so often and swarm the shores in the spring with their dead bodies?! I can't imagine they can take such a drastic temp. change. They say that isn't true at the power plant, but i guess i'll leave that up to you to decide for yourself!

    Don't forget to call and schedule yourselves a cleverly named visit, called a "Power trip"!! (plus, the visit is free if you're on a budget)

    By the way, you can see the nuclear plant from the beach at Warren Dunes Sate park. So you just get back out on Red Arrow High, which is a left when you leave the park. It is about 4 miles down the road on the left hand side.
