The not-so-secret destination of Grand Haven, on many days during the Summer months, provides an opportunity to enjoy everything West Michigan has to offer.  My family and I made the trip from Grand Rapids on a fairly typical Sunday afternoon and were treated to a day, perfect in every sense of the word, of relaxation and pleasant memories.  Living where we do, too often we lose sight of the wonder that surrounds us on a daily basis.  Taking time to enjoy that splendor is a necessary act to keep things in perspective. 

Recently Good Morning America rated a West Michigan location, Sleeping Bear Dunes, "The Most Beautiful Place in America".  For some reason, that surprised me, and I do not know why.  There are gorgeous locations all up and down the lakeshore: South Haven, Saugatuck, Holland, Ludington, Silver Lake, Traverse City, Charlevoix, Petoskey...the list goes on and on and is all right here around us.

Take a day, make the trip to any one of these places, find your focus again, get back to what is real.
