HOT DAY TEASE
We arrived for a day at Lake Michigan, recently, loaded up with towels, lotion, frisbees, picnic etc. After we paid to get in the State Park, drove a few miles to the beach and unloaded all our gear, we realized that very few people were actually IN that sparkling azure water. Why? We eventually saw the small signs warning that the water had recently tested positive for dangerous levels of e coli. A few people were braving it, but we sadly loaded back up and headed off to the local waterpark. No sound of waves hissing and gulls crying and soft sugary white sand, but plenty of relatively safe, blue water.
