The closest open shoreline I’ve found on a Great Lake near Toledo has been out at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area. (There’s also some birding trails there, and a LOT of tiny shells that seem to take the place of sand when I’ve been there in the summer.) This photo was taken at the corner when you first get into the main area, there’s a small trail leading from the parking spot to a stretch of beach. Having grown up next to Lake Superior, I just can’t get over the BROWN color of the water and ice!! However, it does make for a unique look, that’s for sure.
