Before the storm
We camp on the beach at Lake Superior Provincial Park every summer for as long as we are able. Last September, we were lucky enough to score a prime campsite on the sand beach. Large storms rolling from the west often produce long glassy rollers that are perfect for body surfing if you can stomach the cold. I used to hate swimming in cold water until Superior tempted me in with its aquatic roller coasters. I had mixed feelings about this storm, though. It was pretty to watch, but it eventually dumped buckets of water all over our hot-dog supper.
I'm not telling you which beach this is, because I wouldn't want the whole world trampling all over it. Just me, my dog, my husband, other nature nuts, bear, lynx, sand-pipers, seagulls, crayfish, moose, etc....
