Weekend at the beach

We spent the weekend in Saugatuck, a beach town on Michigan's west coast, and couldn't have picked a better weekend to be there. The water temp of the lake was 74 degrees and the waves were continually rolling in. It was gorgeous!


When we weren't floating over the waves with our "boogie boards," we were reading books under our umbrella (the blue and white one in the lower left corner of this photo.) Bliss.

I'd almost forgotten how magnificent it can feel to be in that cool, fresh, wavy water on a hot summer day. It's just like the ocean, minus the salt and the sharks.

The beach in this photo, Oval Beach, has been ranked one of the 25 best beaches in the world by Conde Naste Traveler. And it's just one of a string of incredible beaches and dunes along West Michigan's fabulous shoreline.

Here's a little beach video I shot on Saturday:

Wonderful video! I'm ready to jump into the car and head down to
Saugatuck and jump into that
just-perfect water! (72 degrees today, a little more chop though)!
