You can't see Canada across lake Erie, but you know it's there. It's the same with spring. You have to have faith, especially in Cleveland.

A couple of posts back, I brought you with me to Port Dover, Ontario where we celebrated Friday the 13th - biker style. True, those weren't photos from this November 13th which filled my blog page, but rather Friday the 13th of March. At the end of that post, I promised to share some different Port Dover images from that same visit, and these are them - with nary a biker to be seen in any of them.
I was in Port Dover to visit my lovely sister, Andrea (hi, Andi!) who who has lived in this picturesque town for close to forty years now. Being March, we still had a fair bit of ice and snow to contend with on the northern shores of Lake Erie.
Yet, the melt had indeed begun as evidenced by the free-flowing creek.
It was a cold day for just sitting but this pooch and his person were enjoying the icy view.
I don't think we often consider the dangers that commercial fishing entails but this community has had its share of sad losses. This monument is for them.
The lighthouse is a well-known landmark in Port Dover and it looks especially pretty when the setting sun creates such a colourful backdrop.
The sign says "No Swimming - No Diving - No Jumping." With all that ice... no problem!
The next evening, Andrea and I went out to dinner at Callahan's Beach House. Old posters and photographs of performers decorate the walls of their lobby.
The rest of these images were taken through glass where reflections distract somewhat but the view was still enjoyable.
This pair navigated their way over the bumpy lake ice.
As we enjoyed a delicious meal, we were treated to another warming sunset.
Always beautiful - Port Dover.
