This is the time of year when we all get to settle in and enjoy our summer. The list of summer chores are done, there's no need to mow the lawn because it's dry and dead from not having any rain and it's so hot that there's not much else to do except head to the beach. These images were taken from the beach at Barnes Park in Eastport which is right between Elk Rapids and Charlevoix. It's a place many pass by without even knowing it exists. It's a pretty well kept secret.... 'til now! Enjoy!
