These poor little Canadians had to be ready for a nap after their trip.
I’ve had to stop the car for them while they’re crossing the street, but this is the first time I’ve seen them in the water.
I love how the lake is continually changing. A few hours after I took this, it was completely gone but reformed into part of the wall of ice and snow that the waves pushed in toward the shore.
This is Lake Erie, taken in Sheffield Lake, OH on February 20, 2016.
Lake Erie didn’t really freeze in mid-wave, but it sure looks like it. There were a lot of interesting formations yesterday that won’t look the same tomorrow.
Patiently waiting their turn to go back in the water.

You know it’s a good day when it starts off with hearing the waves crashing in after many long months of quiet ice. Although, hearing the ice cracking when it was starting to thaw was pretty amazing.
How could I not be thankful to wake up to a sunrise this beautiful, especially on Thanksgiving morning. The snow, not so much.
This is what happens when the air temp is 12 degrees and the water temp is 45 degrees. By comparison, the water has to feel a lot warmer, which makes Polar Bear swimming a little more understandable. Just a little.
Watched the storm roll in (literally) last night. Yes, there were tornado warnings but you can’t get pictures like this in the basement. We did however get water there….
Posting this in February, because we need something warm and fun. We’re all quite tired of winter and long for the summer time treats of flip-flops, hot sand, and ice cream.
By the way, this was taken at Tybee Island, GA.
Found this neat little set up on a back road somewhere between here and there.
