Lighthouse Explorations

While we were staying near Lake Erie, there were plenty of lighthouses that you could see. I think that most of them were just minor, but one, the Toledo Harbor Lighthouse, was huge and one of my favorite lighthouses I have seen. It is no secret that I love lighthouses, and Lake Erie has so many. There are plenty of maps if you are interested in exploring any of them. There is also a boat cruise which I was dying to take, but it stormed at least once every day, and with the winds I didn't want to risk it. I would love to go back and actually get to see this lighthouse, as well as another lighthouse that it takes you to, which is not open to the public.

This past month has been dotted with little mini trips...mostly camping, but others too. I have so much catching up to do! I have only been home between the trips for a few days at a time, and the time between has mostly been spent doing laundry and preparing the next trip. It has been so much fun! This first post is from our first camping trip, which was pretty local for us since it was only about 45 minutes away. I went with my family and my grandparents. I spent most of my time relaxing and enjoying the scenery. We rode bikes, hiked, and cooked some amazing meals. I also enjoyed watching the animals, we saw several different animals but the only ones I could photograph were the ducks. I won't bore you with what I wore, as it mostly consisted of shorts and tees. It was a great week.
