Views from the beach

Friday, January 24, 2014

It is below freezing here on the shores of Lake Erie.
It is not an ideal time to be out in the elements exercising...although, one must keep moving to keep warm!
I summoned up some courage last week and set out for some super fresh air.
This is what I stumbled upon:







These are views from the breakwall on my local beach. Because it has been sooo cold for the past few weeks the ice and snow is piled upon the beach and resemble sand dunes that usually reside behind the beach.
I was ALMOST tempted to step out beyond the breakwall onto the ice, but the thought of falling through keep me on more stable ground.

The thought of getting a outdoor workout in did NOT cross my mind as a pleasant task that day. I don't know what force prompted me to get out and get moving that day, but if I wouldn't of drug myself out the door, I would of never seen such spectacular views. And right there in my own backyard!

Lesson learned: Get out there and get moving! And don't forget your camera!

    Did not know you were in Fort Erie!!! My daughter' BF lives there and she will be visiting during the March Break.
    Here too (Barrie - North of Toronto), it is very cold and we have unusual amount of snow, making it difficult to go for a run outside - it is dangerous because the streets are getting narrow...
    Way to go on taking it outside (We need the vit D! ) and posting this blog!!! This is a nice reminder that posting the little positive stories is a great source of motivation and inspiration.
    Thanks.!
