Fierce winds and waves on East and West Bay continue to pummel the Old Mission Peninsula this week, and now we can add the Haserot Beach dock/boat launch to the list of casualties.

Shortly after Tim and I shot a few photos this morning of the dock enduring ocean-like waves at Haserot Beach, I was at the Township Board meeting when Lisa LaBonte texted me that the dock had been destroyed. So off I went to shoot a few more photos.

The Haserot Beach dock/boat launch has been the subject of much discussion this year. The Peninsula Township Board scrapped plans to rebuild the boat launch at Haserot Beach, opting instead to re-open discussion about moving the boat launch to nearby Kelley Park.

In September, they voted unanimously to pursue moving the boat launch to Kelley Park. Read more here.
