Family, Life in Holland Michigan

A few leftover summer pics

One night in July, Aly and I had a daddy-daughter date out at Saugatuck State Park. We hiked a trail I’d never taken out to the lake, and passed nearly a full outfit of clothing over the last half-mile or so before reaching the beach, so we were expecting to find naked people (or at least naked person) but were thankfully disappointed to find nonesuch. We swam under the setting sun in the chilling water for about an hour before I decided to kick Aly out because she had progressed from shivering to something more like quaking. We dried off and made our way down to Beach Trail and watched the sun finish setting before making our way back to the car under flashlight guidance and a protective bubble of bug spray.

I had several great hikes to SSP over the summer and most of those already got their own posts. Here are a few from one day where I didn’t shoot a lot because it was a blazing hot day.

The girls spent much of the summer enjoying their expanded swing set:
