No, no white shores. In the far distance on a clear day, from Palisade Head it's possible to see the shapes of the Apostle Islands, which stick out from the bit of nearby peninsula that pokes up from Wisconsin. But the shores look dark, not white. (Looking across to the north of those you can't see anything but water, seemingly endless, the opposite shores being much too far away to see, even if the "mountains" along the North Shore were really tall.)

In winter, when the islands are covered in snow, *then* their shores will be white. But I prefer the ones Frodo is drawing near to: white because they are sandy, the air soft, fragrant and mild. Ahhhhh.....

Thanks for posting that *blissful* quote, Primula. It has blessed my morning. :)
