With the temperatures rising in Chicago, I drove to Van Buren State Park Beach in South Haven Michigan because of my last experience on the beach in Michigan, waiting for the sunset over Lake Michigan. When I arrived, the beach was covered in piles of snow waiting to melt into the water. Mini icebergs scattered atop the lake, disappearing into the distance. But that weather was beautiful, the beach was empty and the sounds were soothing. As I headed back to my car, a father and son walked up to the edge of the lake and stopped. It’s something that seems so small, just another day but it’s a moment I’m sure they will both remember; their walk on the beach.
