When you can’t get to the ocean a trip to the lake is the next best thing.
I love the sounds of the ocean, toes in the sand with not a care in the world. (I really do!)
Sometimes it’s just not in the cards. When that happens, the lake is a pretty close second.
We took a few days to unwind, relax and enjoy the scenery.
We’ve been to several towns around Lake Michigan but this was our first trip to Grand Haven.
It’s a pretty little place with a quaint downtown and plenty of great places to eat.
On Sunday night we happened upon a free concert downtown by the water
and then on Monday night a free musical water light show.
For a small town there’s a lot to do.
On Tuesday, I didn’t quite have my fill of water so we stopped in South Haven on our way home
for a bite to eat and another lighthouse to explore.
South Haven Lighthouse.
I could sit and watch the sailboats for hours. Not a bad way to recharge the old batteries. (I almost got my recommended dose of vitamin sea.)
