As of Saturday, we've now been to 2 out of the 5 great lakes! We visited Lake Michigan back in May when we came out to visit Ann Arbor and this past Saturday we spent the day at Lake Erie. It was a beautiful day (still cold though) and we walked up and down the beaches and along some of the trails that follow the edge of the lake. The great lakes are seriously amazing because they look like the ocean! They are HUGE! At this lake, Lake Erie, you can see windmills in the horizon which are on the coast of Canada. You can also see the coast of Ohio in the other direction. It's really a cool National Park. We're planning to go back in the summer when you can swim, spread out a picnic blanket and really enjoy the beach!
