INTRODUCTION
NAR: Its another beautiful summer's day. A perfect day to head for the beach. Since the turn of the century, when Manitobans first discovered its beauty, they've been flocking to Lake Winnipeg. And while some are content to be day-trippers, many built a cottage, their own place at the lake.

Manitobans own more than 12,000 cottages the highest rate in Canada. It's were they learned to swim, met new friends, and perhaps, even where they fell in love. Where they passed two enchanted summer months.

The beach offers delights for every age. Sand castles, the splash of the surf, the ever-changing water. Magnificent sunsets. Walks in the great outdoors. Winnipeg Beach, Gimli, Grand Beach, and Victoria Beach. And a dozen more scattered along its sandy shore.

For many, these are the fondest memories of childhood. Safe delightful summers spent at Manitoba's summer playground. Join us on the south shores for a tour of Lake Winnipeg's Paradise Beaches.

NAR: Frances Russell is a Winnipeg journalist who has cottaged in almost every beach on the lake. She has just written the The Great Lake.

FRANCES RUSSELL: The lake fascinates me because there are so many factors. One is its improbability. Here we are smack dab in the middle of North America. Right almost in the middle of the near the geographic centre of the continent. The Great Plains, you would never expect to see a lake of this magnitude right in the middle of the Great Plains.

NAR: Winnipeg journalist Val Werier is a prolific writer on Lake Winnipeg and the environment:

VAL WERIER: It's the dominant feature in Manitoba. You look at the map, Lake Winnipeg stares out at you. Lake Winnipeg has been underrated. It's a giant among lakes. The Cree used to call it the Ocean Lake. I sit at my cottage on the deck and I look across the lake its just like an ocean.

The lake has such a tremendous character. It's theatre, theatre of colour. It changes constantly; you have all sorts of different weather formations. You may have a quiet day were the lake is placid. Or you may have a foggy day were it would be misty. And the horizon and the lake blend into one and you feel like as you're in an ocean. Because the lake and the sky become one.
