The Next Best Thing

August 25, 2011 in Beach, Michigan - 3 Comments
After playing our hearts out at the sandy shores of Lake Michigan for a few weeks, we went through some sand withdrawals once we came home. We succumbed to the next best thing; a manmade beach in the mountains.
The short stretch of rocky sand was nothing like the silky smooth Lake Michigan beaches. I’m still on a little bit of a Michigan high, so I was thrilled when Michigan was named The Most Beautiful Place in America on Good Morning America last week. There really are some beautiful beaches in Michigan, and not many people know about them. Go Michigan!
Even though the manmade beach paled in comparison, the mountains did add a dazzling backdrop. And the difference in sand texture didn’t seem to affect the boys’ ability to play hard.

    There's a sandy beach in Utah?? Man, you know about all the great places! My girls loved the sand way more than the ocean, so you'll have to tell me where this is so we can go play (or better yet, come with us and show us!)
