lake erie beach trash, plastic soldiers on beach

Since Lake Erie finally thawed earlier in the month I’ve been hitting the beach pretty hard. This happens every year. I only go to the beach a handful of times during the winter, am usually bored by the lack of things to find in the sand, then as soon as it thaws I remember all over again exactly what it is I love so much about it there.

First trip there after the thaw I found a couple plastic soldiers within minutes of arriving. I’ve briefly mentioned it before but I collect those. I’ll basically pick up anything that catches my eye on the beach but I’ve made it a point to not bring anything home. Then, around a year ago, I broke my own rule… Guess who has so many plastic soldiers she had to buy a new container for them recently. Yeeeeah, that’s me. Anyway, finding so many in such a short period of time filled me with enthusiasm. It’s basically taken all my strength to not go to the beach every single morning these last two weeks. I know it’s just trash but it’s like a treasure hunt. I’m hooked!

I haven’t made any big arrangements in a while but I have made lots of small ones! Here are some recent photos from my favorite spot along Lake Erie.
