Crystal, thanks for the link. I found my own beaches from my youth in the Wiki photos! But then there were not all those highrises along the waterfront.
We have 33 beaches?? wow
I think I could not have survived living in a city without the expansiveness of the Lake.

Could you come back a minute to my blog? I just posted about the pallium. You will like it.
