I am surrounded by blue water. There is the Grand River less than a mile to the south of me and the lake from which our village gets it's name Spring Lake northwest of me . And then three miles west of my home you can travel out to Lake Michigan. Below is a bird's eye view of our town and all the water surrounding it.
The summer is never dull around here. The city of Grand Haven always has weekend events planned.
Kite flying at the beach and volleyball tournaments on the beach, sand sculpture contest, musical events and so much more Starting this week the town will host the 87th annual Coast Guard festival.
There will be plenty to see and do. Nightly entertainment at the waterfront stadium and a carnival, quilt show and a two day art and Craft show with vendors from far and near. The festival will end Saturday with a big parade and a huge fireworks display. There is plenty of shops for those Who wants to buy or browse and many great places to have a meal or a cool beverage. Might I say that traffic gets a bit crazy about this time. My home is about a block from the main road through the village and I watch traffic back up for miles some days.. Maybe that is why many of the local citizens choose this time to leave town.
Hope everyone is having a wonderstart start to a new week
