After leaving my parents' house, we headed north to Erie, and settled in to a very temporary home (one night) about twenty five minutes from the lake. The campground was more like a big parking lot, and though there was a swimming pool and a small arcade, it left a lot to be desired - but, I prefer this to Wal-mart's parking lot, so no complaints.
After checking out the bathhouse and making a few stops to pick up final fittings for Billy's toilet, we drove to Presque Isle State Park, and one of the many beaches on Lake Erie.
We chose The Lighthouse Beach, which is unguarded, mostly because we absolutely needed to get out of the car, and went exploring.
|The lighthouse is private property, but there is a great photo op if you're willing to walk a bit. Maeryn and Michael hiked there while Jonah and I hung out on the beach.|
|There may have been a splash fight.|
|I was just happy to get out of the car.|
