Great Lakes : Great Beaches

I usually don’t mind winter, but lately I’ve been really missing the feeling of sand between my toes and the warm sunshine that hits my face when I’m lounging out to the sounds of the waves nearby.  So in order to reminisce I thought what better time, and well before the summer, but to list…
