The county park, north of South Haven, MI (I wish I could remember its name) is one of my favorite stops, especially in the fall when it is almost sure to be secluded. Even in the summer, we rarely see more than a couple people there…at least during the week, when Dennis and I try to go. The top of this tall stairway beckons you to descend to a beautiful stretch of white sandy beach and dunes lining Lake Michigan. Standing by the water’s edge, you can look to the north and look to the south, and all you see is sand, water, grasses, and trees. Ahhh, pure heaven.
