Had to Share this Photo of Lake Erie Shore – We Arrived this Afternoon Greeted by a Wasp that Flew into the Small Window Used to Pay Tolls from the Driver’s Seat – Last Year Hornets Invaded the Cockpit – One Huge Wasp Was Just as Effective in Slowing Down our Progress until We Smacked it Silly and Tossed it in the Trash –

I snapped this photo while Steve was disconnecting the Jeep from the tow bar. This is the view from our campsite! Isn’t it fabulous?

We got out of bed this morning at 5:00 a.m., as we usually do when a driving day is ahead of us. We arrived here in mid-afternoon and have finally finished setting up at about 4:30 p.m. Typically, if everything goes as planned, it takes us about an hour and a half to turn our RV into our home. If any one part of the routine misfires, we end up tired when we finish. This time disconnecting the Jeep took some extra time as well as exterminating the wasp that took control of the cockpit for a short period of time. It didn’t help that a section of road work on I-75 had us moving at a crawl for about 12 minutes. I won’t complain, however, as we had a safe and successful trip.

A very nice treat happened when we pulled into a plaza on the Ohio Turnpike. We had sandwiches at Panera Bread! We rarely get to eat out on the road. Our RV towing our Jeep is too long to find a place to park at a restaurant. Our home is ready, and now we will relax, watch TV, and enjoy a snack together.

  1. I was in Buffalo blizzard of 1985 December. 39 inches of snow that month.I have been through hurricanes but that wind off Lake Erie knocked me to the ground. The Niagara Falls were frozen solid !

    • I understand and agree with your respect for the dangers generated by storms in the area of Lake Erie. I lived through the Great Blizzard of 1978. My family lived in southeastern Michigan at the time. It was a horrifying storm! The blizzard you describe in Buffalo in 1985 must have been a frightening experience for you and anyone else that was there at the time. Nevertheless, we are enjoying this time on the shore of Lake Erie. Storms come and go, but none of those recent storms have come close to matching those blizzards we both remember. Blessings to you, Carl…

    Which sandwich did you try? Can you believe we haven’t been to Panera in several weeks? Lovely view you have there! Always good to hear from you!

    • We share an appreciation for Panera Bread sandwiches, don’t we, Patti. I tried the roast turkey with sliced apple. Steve had one simply called Italian sandwich. He liked his and I liked mine. I wasn’t at all disappointed. Thanks for stopping by. Blessings to you…

    Good to see a picture of “my” lake. Many people don’t realize that Lake Erie has many sandy beaches some with beautiful dunes and grasses. It’s one of the things about where I grew up that I miss most.

    • I grew up in a Lake Erie city in Ohio. Beautiful beaches. This beach in Michigan is the one I spent a lot of time on watching the waves roll in and hearing the sound of them gently coming in and going out. Now I am back enjoying it again. Blessings to you, Patricia…
