For my birthday walk I drove the 30 minutes to Edgewater Beach and walked the 2.5 miles trail. Something about the water is always soothing and life-affirming so it was a good choice for the day. The trail had some steep parts. but the views were so worth it. the Lake Erie shoreline is underutilized so it was nice to spend time there and appreciate Cleveland’s Great Lake. The trees really hadn’t started to change yet, but the water, views and brisk morning more than made up for that.
