Lake Erie. The special thing about these pictures is that they were erased – my main memory card from our Christmas vacation was reformatted and partially reused before we discovered neither of us uploaded it! My husband found a program that could recover deleted memory cards, and we recovered about 45 images! This day, the lake was so still and smooth, and when you looked directly out into the distance, you couldn’t tell where the sky and water met. I’m always amazed how infrequently our family actually went to the shore, since we grew up on a farm only about a mile away. It’s come to mean more to me as an adult, and I always make a point of visiting the sandy beach when I’m home.
