Creative Ideas to do at the Lake
My parents' cottage is on one of the Lake Erie islands which is notorious for it's rocky beaches. I have to wear swim shoes when I go swimming!
The cool thing about it though is that it is a prime spot to find beach glass.
It is so exciting to find these gorgeous pieces of smoothed down glass. I could search all day long! Here are some of the pieces I found:
Another creative thing to do at the lake is look for interesting shaped-rocks. I began to look for heart-shaped rocks and found quite a few! I have a mini collection now:)
Another thing I collect are feathers:
They actually work well as paintbrushes:
I used a feather to create these interesting brushstrokes in my sketchbook with watercolors. Kind of reminds me of using a fan brush!
And lastly, my favorite thing to do is....
Paint on rocks! Using acrylic paint (very important...don't use anything else or it will come off!) I painted a funny little toad and some designs on some smaller rocks. So fun:) What is your favorite thing to do on vacation at the lake?
