The NORTH COAST huh? I did not know that! :o

Okay, THE NORTH COAST!

That makes me ask about something else I always wondered - what about those guys I used to see on Second city TV all the time? They were The McKenzie Brothers and their show was called THE GREAT WHITE NORTH I think. Is the GREAT WHITE NORTH the Canada parts above THE NORTH COAST?

Is it really a COAST if it's a lake? (Those GREAT LAKES are lakes, right?) I thought the edge of a lake was called a SHORE.

I'm confused. :|

So they call it a COAST LINE - not a shore line. Another thing I need to remember I guess.

The 'COAST LINE of THE GREAT LAKES!' - sounds like another cool TV show.

They are Lakes until you sail on them, and figure out they are open oceans.
