Wade in the Water

leave a comment »

In theory, the public is not supposed to be out on the concrete pier that leads to the lighthouse on Lake Michigan in Grand Haven.

But there is no gate or fence to stop them so hordes of people walk out on the pier, particularly during the summer.

You do so at your own risk. There are no fences, no guardrails and no lifeguards. Swimming and diving is discouraged, but it happens anyway.

This view of a man wading in the water flooding the end of the pier from waves crashing over it shows why visitors must be vigilant.

It feels good to be ankle deep in water, but one slip could lead to a perilous situation.
