After a walk in the damp, we decided to take a drive in the country. Thankfully, there are quite a few beautiful parts of God’s creation in Lake County, Ohio. We drove through some back roads in Painesville Township which included a very slow drive down an “Unimproved Road.” Apparently, it’s one of those roads nobody cares about despite the fact that there are several houses on it. After that we drove down Casement Road and found that it had been rerouted around the spot where the road caved in during the flood a few years earlier.
But the highlight of our trip was Indian Pointe Park, one of the Metro Parks in Lake County. Framed by a cliff and Paine Creek, the first lookout point was very picturesque. The family posed next to the SAAB and then ran to the Creek to play. The Creek looked more like a river with all the rain we’ve gotten recently. There were rapids and plenty of sticks and ice to launch into the moving water.
We ended up traveling a few more back roads and getting lost. So, like the typical man, I kept driving while Sharon attempted to install Waze (a free GPS program) on my phone. By the time it was installed and working, I had found my way back to Vrooman road and I-90. We made it back home with no problems—and that’s in a FREE SAAB which the Lord provided a month or two ago. It’s still running well and has been an enjoyable addition to the family.
