I guess you get your mind made up about what a city will be like. I packed gloves to go to Chicago. Instead I found this. Maybe sitting on a beach in a landlocked state didn't quite make sense to me.
Staring at the water, the opposite shore wasn't visible. Waves came in just like the ocean. We need a different word for places like this. Something larger and more expansive than "lake".
Hence forth, this place will be known as "The Great Inland Freshwater Sea Michigan".
ya, that's more like it.
