found on the beach

Although I want to, I’m not going to list the things I’m missing right now while we’re stuck at home. I’m sure you’re missing a lot of the same things. I will tell you one thing though – I am glad I had the forethought to get a couple of good long beach trips in

found on the beach

A colorful little arrangement of beach treasures from earlier in the week. Nothing more, nothing less. Sometimes I make arrangements, take a bunch of photos and then never do anything with the shots. It’s a bummer because once it goes on to an external hard drive I’m probably not going to see it again for

found on the beach

30 minutes and one pass of the approximately 900ft beach. Just a quick arrangement because surprise surprise! it’s cold at the lake in January. Mostly broken shards of plastic today.

found on the frozen beach

Only 13 days until spring! Lake Erie is still frozen. New treasures appear each random (and 100% appreciated) day of warm weather tha allows some of the ice built up on the shore to melt. Nothing too spectacular on my last visit. Not even a single toy soldier. I appreciate any burst of color this

found on the frozen beach

Another day, another colorful little display of lighters found in the sand. … or the snow. We had some impossibly cold temperatures last week. (Here’s Klaus to prove it. Technically that ‘proves’ nothing but he’s really cute all bundled up.) Then right after that, the temperatures came right back up to nearly 60 degrees. Sitting
