Watching the Sun Set – Benton Harbor – Michigan

Pure Michigan – Lakefronts that make the heart sing

In addition to passing through Columbus and Niles while on my recent trip in the USA I also stopped by to visit Michigan City, Niles and Benton Harbor. If you are ever in Michigan, although its a bit out of the way and a bit of a drive but you have got to check out Benton Harbor! Located in the west of Kalmazoo.  A beautiful spot on Lake Michigan to hang out for a while, with miles of sandy beach and on a clear day Chicago lights are visible in the distance. It also has these little swings perched on hill tops or slightly higher ground that give the most amazing views. I could see myself getting lost in a book will swinging the life blues out into the horizon ahead.

    Benton Harbour looks a fantastic place, love the colours of the sky in the sunset photos. I could imagine sitting on the edge of that pier watching the sun go down, not worrying about anything, just enjoying the tranquillity.
