Meet your Neighbors: Johnny V

Meet Johnny V! Johnny is a local musician who puts his heart and soul into everything he does. On top of his daytime job, you can find him in the studio, cross country skiing, working with others to make this area a better place and of course playing and singing covers as well as his own music in the many local bars and restaurants around town.

What brought you to the dunes? Living in a scenic area brought so much balance to my lifestyle between my day job and where I live.  Knowing I’m only minutes away from sand, water and all the dune grasses. My wife loves photography and we both love the outdoors in so many different ways. The area simply brings me balance

How long have you lived here? Since 1999

What is your favorite thing to do in the area? There is so much in this area! If you’re a person that loves hiking, biking, swimming photography etc…..ITS ALL HERE! Being in the moment with a vision of some of the most beautiful sunsets one could ask for from our shoreline.

Tell us a secret about the dunes It’s always changing before our eyes

Give us your top three “hidden treasures” (restaurant, shop, trail, beach, event…really anything!)

2) Lighthouse in Michigan City IN

3) All the trails

What would you like to teach people about the dunes? Enjoy them… Have picnics, take photographs, be in the moment……but respect and pay attention to warnings/signs that indicate there may a hazard.  Do you understand what a sink hole is and what the signs are?  You can find all sorts of info on the Internet or by being involved with organizations like dig the dunes.

Anything else? Get involved and enjoy what we have in our own backyard!!!!
