And that is reason 623 to love Michigan- over three thousand miles of Great Lakes shoreline. And the hundreds of miles of inland lakes- clear, beautiful spring-fed lakes. And the rushing rivers that connect them. I read somewhere once (that's how I avoid finding you a source) that you are never more than eight miles from a lake anywhere in this amazing state, and I believe it. So git out yer canoes and yer water shoes, yer duck-watchin' glasses and yer swim suits. It's time to play!
