Peaceful South Haven, MI
Richard and I visited our friends Lori and Dan this weekend in South Haven. Dan owns a house just about 1/2 mile from Lake Michigan and about 4 miles from downtown South Haven. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable time kicking back with them. Saturday night we ate dinner at the Thirsty Perch then shot a little pool on their short tables. Although I did sink a great side-pocket shot right before sinking the 8-ball to win the first game, I couldn't quite get the feel of the way the balls stay scattered so close together on the abbreviated surface. I didn't shoot very well overall but Richard was doing great. And Dan is very good at the game.
Sunday was a beautiful, blue sky treat with just a slight hint of coolness in the air that found Richard getting golf lessons from Dan. Dan's home is on 10 acres and he set himself up with a driving range complete with a wooden statue of a golfer at about 200 yards. After lessons, Dan and Richard headed off to the golf course for 9 holes while Lori and I lallygagged into the city. We enjoyed our walk along the water and had lunch at a small place that overlooked the river in town. It was a perfect way to spend a gorgeous day. Thanks to Lori and Dan for their hospitality!
