Eerie Ice

The Lakemetroparks recently aquired beachfront property at the end of Blackmoore Road in Perry, called Lake Erie Bluffs. It is an isolated part of the coast, with few man-made
structures to be seen.
I cautiously climbed down the steep, icy path to the beach, grabbing on to saplings to keep from sliding to my doom, as I tend to break instead of bounce at my age. I was treated to the sight of giant blocks of ice that formed on the shore after the recent snowstorm that unleashed high winds and waves upon the coast. I estimate the ice in the painting to be about 15 feet tall.
