My Canadian visit to Lake Erie was to Turkey Point. This beach had a few treasures. I had a relaxing stay reading my book and people watching. I had to find a spot in the wind, because the mayflies were swarming. My umbrella was covered with them. I had to take it down and move upwind to a shade tree. When it was time to leave, I found my truck covered with mayflies as well. Of course there was no way to get in the truck without a few of them following me in. Which of course they did. I drove back to the campsite in various stages of windows and sunroof open. I hate things flying around in my vehicle when I’m driving. (Shudder)
Lake Erie is the fourth-largest lake (by surface area) of the five Great Lakes in North America. It is the southernmost (yet I visited from Canada), shallowest, and smallest by volume of the Great Lakes and therefore also has the shortest average water residence time.
