beach combing

One beach, a half hour of wandering, twenty-eight objects to get the tangles out of your hair. Wild, isn’t it? I also found a handful of barrettes and a weft of braided hair that had to be at least a foot and a half in length. A quick found on the beach FAQ You found

abandoned rubber factory 2019

Two years ago I explored this massive abandoned complex for the first time. Not too much has changed since then which is rather shocking considering how quickly some places become unrecognizable. I guess when the property is mostly ruins to begin with, decay is less noticable. This rubber factory complex closed nearly thirty years ago.

abandoned china factory 2019

Two years ago I explored this factory for the first time. Unlike the majority of the other factories (and abandoned buildings in general) I’ve been in, this one is still full of items that show nearly every step of how its products were made.

Each one filled with personal items. It’s like

abandoned mattress factory

Last Saturday we woke up early for a little morning adventure. We’re trying to get better about getting out of the house and exploring more. Especially in this weather, it’s too easy to be lazy and spend your days inside. Our first stop of the day was an abandoned mattress factory on the east side

scenes from frozen Lake Erie

It’s basically never too cold to keep me away from Lake Erie. Except maybe tomorrow when the temperature is supposed to be a whopping one degree. I think I’ll just stay home and drink coffee, cozied up under a blanket in my office instead. xoxo
