While Dawn was waiting safely in the car, the boys and I decided to venture out past the ice dunes and onto Lake Erie. After all, we couldn’t come this far just to play in the sand; we had to get onto the lake. The dunes peaked our curiosity, as they looked like something from a Sci-Fi movie. With the white backdrop of the lake and sky, it looked like these were cliffs over a bottomless pit of snow and ice, and we were the last people on the face of the Earth.
We ventured out towards the frozen lake one step at a time, carefully checking our next move and paying very close attention to how solid the dunes were before proceeding up. Thankfully, there were several brave souls who ventured out ahead of us, so we could just follow in their steps. Once we made it down to the lake level, the boys used their walking sticks to drill through the snow and ice, attempting to strike water.
