    can and do produce rip currents and undertows that will pull an unwary swimmer away from the beach. People drown every year at beaches along the Lake Michigan shore of the lower peninsula, in spite of warning signs.

      So swimming in the Great Lakes is trouble. Worse than the ocean. I prefer the ocean to lakes anytime.

      Lakes are dangerous and hard to swim in. I swam in lakes as a child as well as the ocean.
