Show & Tell....sunset in Geneva...

This will be my second feeble attempt at doing "Show & Tell" a la the wonderful and ever creative Mel on her blog Stirrup Queens and Sperm Palace Jesters . It is a great chance to show off a special picture (or even a not so special picture) to all you loyal blog readers and to help expand your readership.

As I am still in healing mode from my hernia surgery, much of my time this past week has been spent wandering aimlessly from room to room in our house trying to amuse myself.

I was getting amazingly bored with this routine by yesterday and decided to coerce hubby into a small outing of sorts. We really had no real destination so to speak but rather hopped into the truck and just drove. Our first stop was at our local K-MART ( weak - I know) however I was really craving some retail environment. We only stayed 5 minutes there and then headed back toward home.

On our way however we decided to take a small detour. One of the small blessings of living in Geneva, Ohio is that we are just about 5 minutes from the shores of Lake Erie. The very small but incredibly fun stretch of properties along the lake are known as ....
GENEVA ON THE LAKE
It is a small resort town which during the summer months is a great getaway!!! It is full of small local shops, wineries, arcades, games, bars and LOTS of fried foods!
All of this is right along lake Erie offering some wonderful boating and watersports as well.
Probably one of the greatest perks of being right on the water are some of the sunsets which leads me to my picture for show and tell!

Jim decided to go through the GENEVA ON THE LAKE strip despite it being off season with everything closed. Even with all the buildings closed up for the winter, it still made me smile thinking about how soon the scent of funnel cakes and popcorn will be wafting our way.

We pulled into one of the local parking lots just to sit and look out over the water. It happened to be right as the sun was starting to set. I could NOT help myself and whipped out my cell phone to try and snap a picture. Mind you I was sitting in the truck and was doing my best to take a pic through the windshield. I still think the pic is pretty good!!!!

Looking out over the water always seems to set me at peace and yesterday was no exception.
I did come home feeling extremely physically tired and sore from our outing BUT my mind was in a really good place. I have to remember that more often - water + sunset = PEACE!!!

Absolutely gorgeous. I also love visiting summer places off-season. Even when everything is closed up. It's just the anticipation of things to come.

Welcome to show and tell! I got SO excited when I saw that you're from a small town called Geneva. I went to college in a small town called Geneva (NY) - also on a lake (Seneca Lake) not far from Buffalo and Lake Erie! The lakeview is what sold me on a small college town. I loved it there....Looks like you have a similar and lovely view!
