Sept 16 - Holland and Ottawa Beach


A drive day down the side of Michigan - to get to Michindoh for  Sowers reunion in Hillsdale. 

Stop on the way down the beaches of Lake Michigan.






Got to Ottawa Beach and Holland and stopped. 

We judged that this was the best beach we had visited.  Expanse of clean sand and clear water, harbor activity, lighthouse, etc. See for yourself:
