A day at the lake restores the soul!

The boys set off early this morning to go walleye fishing. The river was still rolling like the ocean and it was cluttered with trees. At one point under the bridge, the river became somewhat of a whirlpool. But never fear, the boys made it through and fished for hours on Lake Erie!

My mom and i stayed back at the house. I wasn’t feeling 100% and a day of relaxation sounded wonderful. My mom spent the morning baking cookies for my nieces birthday. Abby spent the day laying around and watching tv!

After i ate some toast i went for a walk to the beach. I brought my camera and attempted to find the boys on the water. I was unsuccessful but i did capture some beautiful photos.

At this point in the morning i was starting to feel more human. I walked back to the house and decided to go for a morning walk. It was exactly what i needed. It was also getting really hot out but the scenery was so beautiful that i just wanted to keep walking. I passed several other women walking down lake road. I passed several bicyclist who looked like they were training for the Olympics. Seriously they always look so graceful riding at such a fast speed! I walked through some small lake communities and surprisingly they were pretty quiet. The marina parking lot was full of trucks and trailers, but the marina itself was pretty quiet also. I did see a family of Amish sitting outside by a fire enjoying some lunch together. We exchanged hellos and i was on my way back to the house.

Fish Fest

Today my husband, father and i set out to catch some walleye. Mission completed! I w caught 8 and kept 4! The weather was absolutely perfect. I could sit on the water all day. It’s so peaceful and stress free.

Today i also brought my cameras and captured some photos on our ride out. The Huron river is so beautiful and surrounded by cute bars and restaurants. We saw all kinds of water craft vessels from kayaks to large yachts. It’s a good mix of local people and vacationers.

Beautiful Memorial Day!

Finally the weather was perfect and what a wonderful day for that to land on. This was the second year in a row that Berea, Ohio didn’t have their parade and it’s kind of sad. The Memorial Day parade always let me know that summer was officially here.

John and i spent the day on the water. We fished a little and checked out the Walleye Festival in Port Clinton, Ohio. We basically just wanted to walk around and people watch. It was pretty quiet with a few carnival rides and junk food. We did however enjoy the beautiful lake view and the mix of people gathered there.

Overall it was a pretty relaxing day, which is always welcomed!
