I have been going to this place ever since I can remember and it just gets prettier and prettier every time that I get out there. The water is almost always cold, so swimming is usually for the thick skinned, which I was blessed with.
We got the chance to swim here quite a few times this break, which is great as we usually do not get so many opportunities.
The night of the 4th we went swimming and the waves were incredible. Unfortunately it was too dark to get any good shots. The swimming was great, it reminded me of being a kid again, splashing and diving into each crest, only to emerge in mid air above the following trough.
I did, however, go out the next day and grab these:
Lake Michigan and all of the beaches on the West Side of Michigan are Pure Michigan to me.
And as always:
Totally Salt Free!! (oh yeah and no oil either)
