Favorite thing: See all the photographs to see the progression of the setting sun.
Our first night staying at our Bed and Breakfast, we walked across the street to the beach to try to take photographs of the sunset; however, we missed it by about one minute. I'm glad that we did miss it on that first night because it was somewhat cloudy. The next night, we made sure that we were there in plenty of time. There is a wooden lookout ledge over the beach, and the two of us made sure that we had ideal spots for capturing the sunset.
It had been such a picture-perfect day, not a cloud in the sky. The sun was a huge orange ball as it started to descend in the west. We took several photographs as the stages of descension progressed.
There were people on the beach watching and taking pictures. They appear in our photographs as silhouettes.
This took place at Dyckman Beach which is located off of North Shore Drive, located to the right of the only Stop sign on North Shore Drive. It is across the way from our Yelton Manor Bed & Breakfast

Favorite thing: We read in all the literature, were told at the Tourist Bureau, and were recommended by people at our B&B that we should not miss the Farmers Market on the Wednesday morning of our last day in town. So, after breakfast, we walked to the market...it was a cool morning, cooler than the other two mornings by far.
When we arrived at the market location, we were disappointed at how few booths there were. Of course, it was late in the season, and it was quite cool.
The people there were very friendly and helpful. We both wanted to purchase Michigan Peaches and discovered that this was the last week that they would be sold. We each purchased 6 peaches [quite large ones] for $6.00. I might add, that once home, both my husband, daughter, and I all agreed that they were delicious!
We also wished to purchase some sweet multi-colored corn, which we bought from the same farm. Mickey took 4 and I took 2, and the six cost $5.00. They, too, were excellent.

Fondest memory: My favorite memories of South Haven are of all the beautiful sunsets that I have seen from the bluff and the beach. I don't think there is any thing prettier to be found, although there are plenty of things to give this beauty a run for the money! All I can say is He is an Awesome Artist :)
