A Stroll in Grand Haven
May 23, 2015
My friend Mel and I recently met in Grand Haven, Mich., to enjoy coffee. I brought my camera, so we strolled from Washington St. all the way to the end of the pier. Selected (clickable) images from that excursion follow.
The top of the little marker at the end of the pier.
A perpetual flame across from the Coast Guard station.
A sight of the end of the pier, from the channel boardwalk.
A tern. Much less common than a gull.
Some kids were flying a kite on the beach.
Many die diving into the channel or the lake from the end of the pier.
A catamaran sits, unattended, on the beach on the north side of the channel.
Going on duty.
This ship supports marine research conducted by Grand Valley State University.

Mel says this sculpture used to be elsewhere.
The front side features a heavy concrete structure that looks like a ship’s bow, to break waves headed toward the lighthouse.
Bouy marking the other side of the channel.
This vessel went deep into Lake Michigan on aux power.
A bird’s nest fit for a flock of queens.
It was in the upper 50s and breezy, so the beaches were quiet.
All photos were shot with my Nikon D3100 with a Nikkor 55-300 lens, in auto mode.
