February 16, 2015: Go to the beach in the winter

And I don’t mean go somewhere around the equator on vacation because ain’t nobody got money fo’ dat. Okay, that’s not true. Lots of people have money for that but I am not one of those people.  I don’t know how it is that in all of my thirty something years of life I haven’t been to the beach in the winter.  With such a large lake I wasn’t expecting that it would be frozen but I thought maybe there would be little ice bits floating or some crunchy ice at the edge that I could step on with my boots for a very satisfying sound. I was not expecting that the beach would be completely remade by the elements and would now consist of 20 foot high ice dunes.

Some of it even looked like another planet covered in ice balls.

There was no getting near the water’s edge at all because ice cliffs had formed.

Now that I look at this one with the grasses I can almost pretend that is sand and not snow. Winter you’re pretty and all but fuck, you’re a cold hearted bitch.grasses
