As mentioned, I want this blog to be more than just food. Nature is such a beautiful thing that I don’t get to enjoy much due to my job being indoors. On my day’s off I try to spend as much time outside as possible to take in fresh air and the beauty I see very little of. Last week was the start of Spring and even though the first day drew in some snow flurries in N.E Ohio, the weather has slowly begun to warm up giving us hope that winter is packing his bags and going away for a few months.
It was a 45 degree day with heavy clouds and the sun fading in and out. At about 5 pm, the clouds finally broke up and allowed the sun to stand still for a while making a chilly evening seem cool from the little warm of the sun kissing your skin as it began to lay down for sleep, so I took to the lake with my camera. I would hate to waste such a nice sunset sitting on the couch catching up on Top Chef (my current addiction) after being stuck in the house all day, I needed my ipod and some fresh air to relax and take my mind off life for a while.
Lake Erie may not be as clear as the Pacific Ocean or a beautiful as the Atlantic, but it’s home and to me home is love. I can’t wait to take more walks along the lake this summer and even hit the parks for more pictures. Cleveland is actually quite nice if you take the chance to stop what your doing and look around. If you get the chance, spend more time outdoors. Grab your ipod and go for a walk with nature. Take a book and sit in the park, put your dog in the car and take a drive to somewhere you can walk and play. Enjoy the outdoors while it’s legal 🙂
The world is yours to explore
Study nature. Love nature. Stay close to nature. It will never fail you.
