Still warm enough to enjoy the outdoors, the boys climb on a log that washed up on the beach. The waves were strong enough to move the log as they stood on it, making for some fun "surfing." Lake Michigan water temperatures were probably in the low 60s or high 50s, so getting splashed by the waves wasn't comfortable, but it was exciting.
It seems right after Labor Day, the temperatures drop enough for it to feel like Fall, and the winds begin to churn up the lake. When the winds come from the northwest, the clouds seem to hang right over the lake, like a cotton ceiling; almost endless.
