This gallery features images taken at Watervale, along the shores of Lake Michigan and Lower Herring Lake in Benzie County. This amazing resort community, featuring an inn and cottages which started off as a lumber town, has been a cherished part of the lives of generations of visitors to our region. It was also the first place that Drew fell in love with in this region of Michigan when he was a guest at the wedding of two friends that took place at Watervale. After his visit the hooks were set and he began to spend more time in Benzie County and the more time he spent, the more he wanted to be here...and thus the seeds of Focus Gallery were sowed!
