Honeymoon Beach, Past & Present...

Even though it's been quite awhile since I posted, I want to share some pictures from our recent "mini vacation" to Stevensville, MI and South Bend, IN. Stevensville is where Steve and I went on our honeymoon. While we were there honeymooning, we decided that we wanted to go to the beach, but we didn't want to have to pay to enter the state park. So we just wandered around for a while and asked locals how to get to the beach for free. Eventually we happened upon this dirt road that led to a sandy path that winds between some private properties and spills out onto a lovely public access beach!
This year, Steve only got 1 week of vacation time, so he positioned it right over his birthday, our anniversary, and Konnor's birthday. I decided that I wanted to go back to Stevensville and hunt down that "secret" path to the beach again. We were lost for a little while because we didn't know the name of the beach and we never wrote down how to get there either, but we eventually found it! Yay!

 I really want to make it a tradition to go to that beach (dubbed "Honeymoon Beach") every couple of years and take new pictures and take our children.
 Konnor didn't really know what to make of the cold water or the crashing waves, but he loved playing with the rocks!
