Just wanted to share a few photos from our day at the beach.
We had originally planned on spending the day at Grand Haven State Park. On a Saturday afternoon. In the middle of summer.
Horrible idea we soon found out.
Lines and lines of traffic. No parking anywhere remotely near the park. Thousands of people.
So we headed down the coast a few miles and found the paradise pictured above.
Rosy Mound Natural Area.
Beautiful beach. Not nearly as packed. And only a short semi-strenuous hike from the parking area.
I think that was the catch. No one wants to spend their time getting to the beach. They just want to be there. Also no lighthouses at this park. Which was perfectly fine by us.
I wish I would've taken a few more pictures, but you get the idea.
