It’s no secret that the waters around the Old Mission Peninsula are high right now. Not high as in dazed and confused (well, maybe a little dazed and confused), but high as in the beaches around our lovely Peninsula are nonexistent.
A great example of that is Haserot Beach. Or, rather, what used to be Haserot Beach, but is now a tiny sliver of beach with a whole lot of water.

We reported on the rapidly diminishing Haserot Beach a few weeks ago, and after the storms this weekend, there is even less beach there now.
However, the lack of beach did not deter a few brave souls who put their chairs defiantly out on that little sliver of sand. “We will not be deterred from using this lovely beach!” they said. (Or at least, that’s what they said in my head.)
And put their blankets and kayaks and kids on that little sliver of sand, raising their fists to the sky and shouting, “We will use this beach because that’s who we are!” (Again, in my head.)
At their meeting on July 10, the Peninsula Township Parks Committee noted that they are looking into bringing in some additional sand to build up the low spots and are currently investigating the required permits and process. Stay tuned.
A little silver lining of having no beach at Haserot Beach is that the residents of the village of Old Mission might not have to deal with as many traffic issues this summer. Read more here…
