This is the view of Lake Michigan looking out our windshield. I think the wind was blowing about 35- 40 mph. I stayed in the car to take pictures but there were a few brave souls that ventured out by the pier.
Here is a closer view of the waves rolling down the pier
Sitting in the car the snow would come and go and with the wind blowing so hard it was difficult to see very far forward at times. Not only was the snow blowing but the sand was really whipping too.
This is a view of the canal that connects Lake Macatawa to Lake Michigan. Not much of a view with the snow, sand and wind. As long as we stayed in the car it was actually sort of pretty.
This is the view looking back toward Lake Macatawa
There's a campground(Holland-Lake Macatawa) back about a 1/4 to 1/2 mile from the beach area with electric service only and some sites have 50 amp but it is pretty close quarters and would be difficult to get large rig into a site.
We really enjoyed our stroll down memory lane and thinking about all the different things we did with the family. Boy what a difference the weather makes. Fortunately the roads were not bad(mostly just blowing snow) and by the time we got to the IN border and into IL the snow had stopped and it was smooth sailing. Looking forward to spring and getting the camper out.
Oh yeah... We're planning on going to the Chicago RV show next weekend. Got to keep looking for that perfect rig to go full time in. We invited our younger daughter in IN and her husband to meet us so she is trying to get the weekend off from work. I know we'll have a good time and I think they will too. We'll have some lunch together while we are there. So many great restaurants to choose from. Well wish us luck on narrowing down the search. Ready to retire and it won't be long.
