Mid-March on Lake Erie

Well, the lamb-type March weather really kicked in last week. Unfortunately, I was out of town and missed the highlights. The warmer temperatures did indeed start to open up the free-flowing water on the Lake. We are starting to look like Glacier Bay, Alaska.

Last Sunday Sam and I tried to walk the trails at the State Park, there was still too much snow to make it comfortable. We actually saw a fisherman on the ice within the marina. I thought he was crazy to take the chance. Of course if he returned this past weekend, there was open water, he would have gone for a swim for sure.

Speaking of swimming, we saw this pair enjoying the open water in the marsh to the west of the marina. along the trail yesterday afternoon. Another month or so and we will start seeing boats launching for the summer season (I can't wait).

We did have guests enjoying the mild temperatures outside. The snow is finally gone and there is easy access to the patios and beach.
