What's so nice about these beaches is they are a short 3 hour drive from Chicago. So if you're ever thinking of a mini-retreat from the city, head over to Grand Haven. They have tons of cute B&B's, it's just a great summer town perched right on Lake Michigan. What could be better?! And unlike the Chi side, the water is much warmer and you can catch a gorgeous sunset over the water.
Gorgeous Rosy Mound... Little Brother was happy as a lark playing with drift wood all day.
And a few more pictures my Sister took from Holland State Park, south of Grand Haven.
Ahh, little slice of paradise. When I'm sitting at the beach, with some sun, a good book and family, there's not much that's better.
