Long Description:
It's as good a beach as any at this time of the year and, besides, it's deserted, giving us lots of room to roam. There's normally a couple of lifeguards on duty, but I see they're not here today. Well, no matter, the water's a little too frigid for a dip anyway. Nice view, it's a crisp, clear day and the mountains look inviting today.

There's a concession stand and wash/changing rooms on the east end of the beach near a nice little gazebo for shade on a hot day or refuge during a summer shower. Along the lakeshore on either side of the beach I see parks with benches and picnic tables, treed and grassed areas, great for a stroll along the lake without getting sand in the shoes. The beach is on the north end of the city and the south end of Whitefish Lake.

Just a few short weeks ago the beach was packed with people swimming, sun bathing, picnicking, boating, floating and playing volleyball. Today they're all elsewhere, and I'm beginning to see why. The wind's coming up and it's getting chilly, as it's November after all - I think I'll go inside now.
