Winter Wonderland

Just a few more pics from yesterday's walk - although cold, it was a nice sunny day. And at least one of us was wearing fur.

Lake Erie generally freezes over in the winter, being the shallowest of the Great Lakes. An ice boom is deployed every winter to prevent the ice from flowing down the Niagara River and damaging the water intakes for the hydroelectric power plants. This isn't the best picture, but you can see the open water that is immediately downstream of the boom.

Kip on the walking path - it's nice that it's maintained throughout the winter!

A few short months ago, this was all sand. Hopefully, it won't be too long until it's back to sand!

The ice and snow build-up on the shore line, caused by the lake. That's Buffalo in the background.

It's pretty in winter - but I still can't wait for spring!


  1. what Buffalo? I don't see any Buffalo? Are Canadian Buffalo different from American Buffalo? :)

  2. Silly Poodlebugs - do American's not know their geography?? ;-)
