MyBeachCast App for Great Lakes Beaches

Want keep up to date with what’s happening on the Great Lakes beaches?  The MyBeachCast App is now available for Android users.  IPhone Apps will follow soon. Developed by The Great Lakes Commission, the app is now available for Indiana, Michigan and Ohio beaches with real-time data including wave heights, weather conditions, beach advisories and environmental information.  Illinois, you’re next on the list!  The remaining four Great Lakes states will be online by May 2013.  Very Cool!

Beach Hut: Home Away From Home

Also known as beach cabins or bathing huts, according to Wikipedia, there may be some 20,000 beach huts in the United Kingdom. They’ve come a long way from collapsible horse-drawn rooms on wheels to today’s modern shelters. On the seafront in Hove, Sussex, England, you can call one your own for about $16,142.00 (US) a pop. Check out the Daily Mail Online for more on the “very English joys” of owning your own beach hut!
