I have a day and a half left at the Lake for 2009. I was in Pittsburgh on Saturday and came back up here that night.
Sunday was a perfect beach glass day.
Notice I’ve switched my “for scale” object in the photos. That’s because of the one piece of glass just to the right of my phone. It is the largest piece of beach glass I’ve ever seen, by far. Let’s have a closer look…
Yeah, the other pieces closest to my phone aren’t too shabby either. The one directly above is probably close to an inch thick. Oh! And I also found my first-ever marble that same day. See?
Today was another good day. Here’s my haul from my “primary” walk, around lunchtime today:
Not too shabby, I’d say! The half-round just to the left of my phone is a really nice piece I found at the tail end of my walk
So that covers the “love.” What’s the hate?
Bugs. Well, Ladybugs. I don’t know anything about the life cycle of this insect, but the beach has just been infested this week. There are long stretches where it’s impossible to walk without stepping on the damn things. And when they land on you they stick. Yuck. Yeah, I know there are all sorts of cute Ladybug stories and there’s something about letting the bugs stay on you and make a wish or some crap like that? I’m over it. They’re gross.
We had a decent sunset tonight
And on my way back up to the house, I ran into a couple I’ve been noticing all summer. Why have they stood out so clearly? Because of this guy:
Meet Sam. He’s a very large very old dog whose hind end doesn’t work so well anymore. So this is how he goes on his walks.
