After the used books sale we drove to Pier's Cove on Lake Michigan so I could take some photos. Lake Michigan was calm and there were no clouds, so I only took a few pictures.

We were home from South Haven by 11:30 AM. I left to volunteer at the library used books store around 12:35 PM and got home around 5:05 PM. Now the time is 7:17 PM here where I live only my existence. The Book Nook was not busy so I basically read for four hours from a novel titled, Dissident Gardens' a novel by Jonathan Lethem.
