Friends Good Will 1812 Warship
Seems like the hot spot to vacation is South Haven with its gorgeous sandy beaches along Lake Michigan, some wonderful restaurants, lots of intriguing shops to browse in, blueberry farms nearby where you can pick your own and homes galore --big or little, new or historic --to rent by the week or a weekend. From their Maritime Museum you can book passage for a sunset cruise on a replica of a ship that fought in the War of 1812 called Friends Good Will. When they fire the cannon they get everyone's attention! What better way to learn about history? "We have met the enemy and they are ours!"
