On Monday I talked about what was different about our Lake Erie experience (polka!). Today I’d like to talk about – or rather show you – what was the same. It brings us peace and centers us somehow to go and view that vast water, watch the birds, explore the shore.
As usual, we came home with dozens of pictures of birds. They make us laugh & then just astound us with their beauty. I know that some folks don’t like seagulls, but since I don’t live around them I’ll just admire how pretty they are.
Of course it wouldn't be a lake trip without pictures of black ducks.
There are always a few dogs. This one was really eager to get to the water for a drink.
And this one played fetch forever - bounding out for the ball & then practically just floating back with it.
On the first day we were there it was fairly warm (I only got a little chilled).
We saw flowers & butterflies.
But Monday a cold front moved through & it was really really windy and quite chilly. Thank goodness Dr. M packed a long sleeved shirt for me (he always does).
And even though it was cold & blustery I really loved the atmospheric sky.
We had such a nice time. I read two books and Dr. M played on his computer and rested. It was a great break.
