I go back and forth on whether I like beach days or beach nights better. I love both, but I have a special place in my heart for the golden hour in Michigan.

Especially when it involves piers, lighthouses, soft sand and pretty light.

Usually we camp out at a small cove beach next to the channel during the day, but in the evenings we like to walk to the “big beach” on the other side of the lighthouse.

Throwing any sort of schedule out the window for a couple of weeks was just what we all needed before diving back into school.
