Comments and Discussion thread for Challenge 86 - Coastal Scenery

Thread for comments on Challenge 86 - Coastal Scenery

Not required, just point one of your ultra long lenses in the general direction of the coast, you're bound to get something you like.

Living between Lake Huron and Georgian Bay with various smaller Lakes in the area we're not exactly short of shoreline but it's freshwater and not tidal. The border between Canada and the US is in Lake Huron if that counts as coastal.
