The Sandy Shore of Lake Erie

The hot sand on my feet, the "sea" air on my face, and the sound of the waves crashing onto shore is one of the most relaxing experiences. I thrill to just sit with eyes closed and let the warmth of sun and sound of water bathe my soul.
We took a mini vacation this past weekend to the shores of Lake Erie. The cold, rainy nights were much to be desired but everything else was worth it. I love coming here. Most people travel hundreds of miles to visit the ocean. I'm glad I don't feel the need to do that for pretty much the same experience. Living 1.5 hours from one of the Great Lakes truly is a blessing.

There is quite a bit to do in the area, lots of neat attractions. This time we stuck to one of the harbors and fished. This picture is of a huge kite that some people were flying. I took this picture when the person decided to let it sail them out onto the water.

Mr. Z. would probably say he was fishing for a particular type of fish which was probably perch, of which we were unsuccessful. I, on the other hand, was fishing for whatever would bite. haha Small Mouth Bass seemed to be the only fish that live in this lake :)  They were fun as long as they weren't breaking my line :(

Fascinating giants that seem to be popping up everywhere these days. This one was on the harbor.

This is how we ate all weekend minus Father's Day-I cooked that day. Mr. Z. man-handled the cooking the rest of the time and let me tell you, that guy is awesome :)  What you see here is burgers wrapped in bacon, green peppers, and in the foil was onions being cooked to perfection.

Our view from where we ate the above meal. The day was perfectly beautiful! It was fun and much needed to get away for a few days and enjoy the sandy shores of Lake Erie.

Trust your week is a good one filled with many blessings.

  1. You are blessed to live so close to one of the worlds largest lakes!
    Do you eat the small mouth bass? My folks in Oklahoma eat some kind of bass that is really delicious.
    How wonderful to camp out and eat out, too, I would love to do that. I've got to talk my husband into doing that. We live an hour from Lake Winnipeg, and although it isn't as large as one of the Great Lakes, it is the 7th largest fresh water lake in the world. And when you sit on it's shores, you cannot see land if you are looking due North. I'm going to look on a map to see exactly where Lake Erie is. Lakes are really as nice as the ocean I think.
    Enjoy your day!!


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing from each of you.
