Lake, Colorful

This section of Lake Erie near Maumee Bay State Park almost glowed in the fall sun, and the contrast between the green and blue hues caught my eye. Gentle waves lapped near my feet, though the chilly morning temperatures convinced me that sticking my toes in the water would not be an especially sensible plan.

The park was nearly deserted: no dog-walkers, no beach denizens, no folks selling funny t-shirts, and no young people with blaring radios. Just a few old-timers on benches, and a gangly writer staring at the lake when he should have been correcting exams or preparing lectures.
