Lake Erie

Now, I don't want you west and east coasters to laugh but Ohio has a beach! I said stop laughing! We have lake Erie and the beach at Headlands Park. I spent my evening there yesterday.  You have to start the evening at Scooter's Dawg Haus where you can order what I ordered....a deep fried hotdog with cheese and bacon and a huge mound of greasy fries. Hey, I had a DIET coke! Then you head to the beach.
You park your beach chair right at the water's edge so you can watch the seagulls clean the beach of all the pretzels and french fries left from the daytime partiers.
Or you can watch the groups of teenagers and remember when you thought it was cool to wear a bikini. If I did that now, they'd send for the patrol. I was going to put in a picture of them and try to pass them off as my husband and myself. Right....I didn't think you'd fall for it either!
The only thing I got wet were my toes. It was heavenly cold on a hot evening. I wish this was in my backyard, then I'd be there all the time. But it is more than an hours drive so I don't see it much. A little cottage by the lake or the ocean for retirement is what I dream of. Happy late days of summer!

Hi Karen, how pretty Lake Erie is. I have not been up that far in Ohio yet. We used to go to a lake near Clevland to take my dog to water rescue classes but it was not a pretty as this is. Looks just like the east coast! Thanks for sharing!
Bless you, Shirl

Just had to tell you that if my girl, Adrienne, ever has a baby girl of her own she wants to name her Aubrey Suzanne. Aubrey for the Bread Song (we love it, too!) and Suzanne for me (my middle name).

Girls ALWAYS come back my friend. They will be around when all others have left.

I'm quite sure she's missing you, too!

Love, Rebecca
