March Break: The Beach
That's right - we visited the beach for March Break. It just happened to be a frozen beach, in what seemed like the middle of winter. You haven't experienced "cold" until you've had the wind blow right through you after it travels across the giant, frozen expanse of Lake Erie.
We started off March Break with a visit to my parents, who live at the home that was once our cottage. When I was little, the land next to the lake formed what I used to call a "cliff." Each winter another portion of the cliff wears away and it has become a gently sloping hill, covered with broken trees, instead.
It may not be a warm Florida getaway, but the landscape holds a natural beauty that proves fascinating for children and adults alike.
The beach and the water were virtually indistinguishable, but the kids and I found an open hole where the water showed through. Cautious as I am, I didn't allow them to get too close. They threw snowballs at the hole instead. My husband took them back the next day though, and chuckled when he told me the water was a few inches deep.
We also took a trip into town. More about that next time. Have you had your spring break yet? How did you/will you spend it?
