The sun was shining on us yesterday as we explored the Presque Isle State Park. It is a giant sand dune protecting Erie, Pennsylvania. Long and skinny, there is a walking trail that winds around the edges.
We hiked a fair amount of it, and drove some. The sand dunes are amazing and so are the beaches. The sand is soft and fine and very clean. As I walked, my feet sank into it and it felt so good. We explored the beach for a while, I felt like going swimming, but we weren’t prepared for that and besides, it is the state law, “no swimming without a lifeguard… “
There was another sign telling us “do not feed the wildlife”. They did not warn me that I should not help the wildlife off the road, so I gave this little fellow a ride to the side. He wasn’t big, maybe 10 inches long and he said thank you nicely.
Good deed for the day done, we went geocaching.
Look carefully and you may find me. This was a particularly difficult treasure.
As we entered the wooded area there was an ominous sign.
I was wearing a hat. I have escaped tickless.
We also noticed an interesting plant along the pathway. Is this what I think it is?
This park is dangerous!!Never mind feeding the wildlife, what about the wildlife attacking us?
We decided to get out while still in one piece.
We needed to get that lighter fixed so we could use our multitude of electronic gadgets. We found a GM dealer and while they said they were too busy to help, John did his talking, you know what I mean, and we soon left, new lighter installed and the cost? $4.39 Wow. Thank you.
We enjoyed a dinner cooked over a camp stove in a lovely rest stop and found a comfy nook to tuck into for the night. Today it looks like a rainy day.. I wonder what adventures we can get into?
