feeling -- all wet in winter
March 03: We're back from a visit to Erie, Pennsylvania,
to see Presque Isle State Park (amazing) and the new Splash
Lagoon (weird but wonderful), an indoor water park.
Isle offers many opportunities for boating and other outdoor
pursuits, and in the winter ice fishing is popular, between
the island and the shore. While on the island, we saw ice
boats. What a sight! On the way home, we also saw two ice
boats off the beach in the Town of Hamburg near Athol Springs
(don't even try to get me to say Athol).
This was a first for us, both in the category of seeing ice
boats, and in the category of seeing ice boats in Buffalo.
Splash Lagoon indoor water park offered us a way to fight
the cabin fever that is setting in with the decline (on paper,
at least) of winter weather. It was weird and wonderful to
be wet in winter without danger, and to see all the families
enjoying themselves. Dads and babies were especially endearing.
It's not cheap, but it is worth consideration.
