We had planned to go to Holland State Park for the kids to enjoy the beach. This would have been another 20 minute drive since Don and Liz live on the other side of Lake Macatawa from the State Park. They live by Piper Restaurant on the map and so we would have had to drive all the way back around the lake.

|You can see how few people are at the beach|
|What you can't see are the additional steps above and behind these that take you to the top of the dune.|
