We’ve finally made it into Michigan and my first experience with the Great Lakes. We spent a beautiful sunny afternoon yesterday in the charming little lakeshore town of Saugatuck, just south of Holland, MI. The spring flowers and lilac trees are all in bloom but unfortunately we just missed the tulips, for which this area is famous.
In Holland we explored Big Red, the old lighthouse on Lake Michigan and walked on a gorgeous, sandy beach that rivals the beaches of Florida. Little did we know that there were beaches like that on the shores of the Great Lakes.
