There is nothing that compares to the beauty and serenity of a sunset over Lake Michigan, especially at the beginning of summer! We had been waiting and waiting for these summer days to arrive since moving back to Michigan in October of 2016.
We had been living in Houston, Texas for about 2 1/2 years before starting our journey back to my hometown of Muskegon, Michigan. We are so happy to be back to family, friends and the familiarity of the lakeshore!
We took a timeout from our usual hustle & bustle of the work week to catch a Friday night sunset at Pere Marquette Beach in Muskegon, MI and I am so glad we did because I was able to snap some great photos of my daughter, Sophia, and our fur baby, Nitro!
There are so many amazing things to do in Muskegon, MI and visiting the local beaches is at the top of my list! This was our first sunset of the season, but it definitely will not be our last. It was quite obvious that Sophia loved the sand & water, even though it was freezing!
Next time we head down for a sunset we’ll get there a little earlier so Sophia can make a sandcastle & splash in the waves some more. If you’re ever visiting the area, take time to catch a beautiful Lake Michigan sunset, you will not regret it!
