Short Walk on a Long Pier

An In-Town Tourist Feature:
…because Adventure begins in the heart and Travel starts at the end of your own driveway.

A 1500 foot pier is an unexpected find in landlocked Central Ohio. The Hoover Mudflats Boardwalk in Galena, Ohio lies on the northeastern edge of Hoover Reservoir and is a popular recreational site for boaters, birders and fishermen.

Bald eagles, peregrine falcons and osprey are lake area residents and can be spotted with a steady eye on the sky. The water may be mud brown in color, but pier’s end offers a view expansive enough to awaken oceanic dreams…

In-Town Tourist: Swimming Beach at Hoover Reservoir (video)

Hot and humid in Ohio.  A sultry Sunday afternoon.  One of the so-called dog days of summer. Our dog Lily, a six year old chocolate lab, enjoyed splashing through her day.  Check out the video of our favorite swimming spot (I’ll use HiDef next time).  The second video “If You Give a Hannah a Video Camera” is a good argument for keeping hold of the camera at all times!
