South Haven has a beautiful beach, but when we visited, a cold front had moved in. It was about 65 degrees and extremely windy. We were cold. Apparently the Michigoniacs thought it was great beach weather though. They were swimming around in Lake Michigan, and I overheard two ladies talking about how great it was that it was finally cool enough to go outside. Honestly, until today, the weather had been very mild. We walked out to the lighthouse on the pier with great care, remembering the stories Mike and Connie told us last night about people being swept off into the lake on windy days, never to be seen again.
