Beach

Another word in the Midwest that has a slightly different meaning.   Most people think of a beach as the soft white sand along the salty ocean.  In the Midwest, a beach is any strip of land along any body of water.  I think the beaches along the great lakes qualify pretty well, but there are some other areas that we consider beaches that no one else would.  A reservoir.  A pond.  A creek.

Funny story.  One of our little hiking adventures took us to Issac Lake; no beach there, but a trail in the woods led us along the creek with a dirt patch next to it, and what did I say?  “Ohhh it’s a little beach!  We could have a picnic here and enjoy the water!”  Ha!
