FBD - I used to live on the beach in Muskegon across the street from Pere Marquette Park - not a fun place to live when the gales come up. Yes the sand is a pain big time when you are trying to clear snow from the driveway. Snowblowers do not like sand, along with windshields and paintjobs.

Gotta pay sometine for the nice summer days on the beach.

Wife and I are headed for Calumet Marine this afternoon to p/u boat. We'll check out these seas in person on way down, wish I had decent camera with me. I'm not looking forward to the haul back to Cadillac! :no:Good luck if you're bow hunting!
