Lake Erie is far cleaner now than it was in my youth. No more fires and there is less industry and agriculture dumping pollutants into the lake. Paradoxically, even the infestation of the zebra mussels have "cleaned up" the lake, which then creates more clarity and allows the algae to grow along the warmest spots of the shore.

The storm of a day or so ago brought some of this to the shore, so here and there it had that funky lake smell. But hey - it's a lake! A Great Lake. So it smells like a lake now and then. Mostly, it was just beautiful. Down to the eastern end, the water picked up that blue and green that I was expecting.

Norfolk county has the best "share" signs we have seen. Including the pedestrians is a great idea. While motorists might begrudge a cyclist from time to time, not many are going to try to gun down a person walking on the roadside. So I think it both heightens the senses, and moderates the antagonism. Not that the Canadians are rough with cyclists! Throughout the country so far, all have been courteous and passed safely, with moderate speed.

In one of the small summer colonies, we happened upon a lemonade stand. Except that this is really a "lemon-AIDE" stand. The cousins raise money to assist their aunt in a special program to help children in Kenya continue their schooling. I don't think I've ever had such delicious lemonade!

We had another great evening visiting with Warm Showers hosts Dan and Lynn. They have a place right on the lake, and prepared a great supper for us. We thoroughly enjoyed having a chance to kick back like we were just enjoying a summer night on the lake - like normal folks!
