It'd been sunny all day and I decided to head to Lake Michigan for the sunset. Empire became my destination since it was only thirty minutes away.
By the time I arrived at the beach, clouds above the horizon had begun to obscure the possibility of a clear sunset.
I love the Empire beach because it has so much to offer. Lots of beautiful sand and dune grass are there to enjoy.
The Empire Bluffs also provide a striking backdrop in the distance.
The brick wall makes a perfect place for watching the sunset.
There's so much to do at the Empire Beach. Kids were playing on the swings and shooting hoops at the basketball court. A few people were tossing tennis balls to their dogs too.
A dune buggy without a top was even enjoying the beach; I noticed the driver was dressed in a warm coat and winter hat.
While the sunset didn't materialize as I'd hoped, the many people enjoying their time outdoors was a clear sign that beach time was here.
