For those not from Erie, aka my family, here is a side note about the lake from Wiki: Lake Erie is the fourth largest lake of the five Great Lakes, and the tenth largest globally. It is bounded on the north by the Canadian province of Ontario, on the south by the U.S. states of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York, and on the west by the state of Michigan. The lake is named after the Erie tribe of Native Americans who lived along its southern shore.
I just learned so much.
So, you dont believe it either? Okay.. if you insist.. here are some pictures so you can see it for yourself:
frozen lake erie. that used to just be water with sail boats in it.
see those little boxes.. thats people ice fishing
freeland was brave and took the first step to actually walk out onto the ice
walking out even further
I finally also decided maybe I would try it out too
playing on the lake
It was FREEZING. I wish you could see the number of layers I had on. That jacket basically wouldnt really button up from all the layers.
Freeland brushing away the snow to see the ice
Can you believe that these were taken at the same spot just a few months ago? And now were walking on top of it?
That was all on the bay side of the lake.
And that was definitely a first for me.. walking on ice like that.
I hear that cars drive out there.. I don't know if thats true?! But Im sure its a sight to see if it is.
I have pictures from the other side of the peninsula looking out at the rest of the
ocean lake. I will post those for you too.
