Watch Out, Sunsets, You’ve Got Competition!

Posted on October 13th, 2010 by Maria Santoferraro

I love the colors of the sunset, but I have to admit that this time of year, they have some fierce competition from the beautiful colors of the fall foliage. I live within walking distance to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, so it’s easy for me to take a break during my day to sneak […]

A Rainbow of Sunsets

Posted on September 29th, 2010 by Maria Santoferraro

Well, another sunset season is coming to an end for me, and I have to say that it makes me a little melancholy. From the months of April through October, the rotation of the Earth and the sun are perfectly aligned, so I get to see the sun drop into Lake Erie on a regular […]

The Secret is Out About Sea Glass

Posted on September 13th, 2010 by Maria Santoferraro

Image via Wikipedia How did this happen? How did the world find out about my passion for sea glass? It seems like everyone is looking for the colorful frosted pieces of glass that wash up along the shores of the beach. On my local beaches I used to be the only one walking along the […]

Summer is Not Over—Get Outside for Music and Mojitos While You Still Can!

Posted on September 8th, 2010 by Maria Santoferraro

“The sky broke like an egg into full sunset and the water caught fire.” —Pamela Hansford Johnson, The Unspeakable Skipton (1981) It’s been a beautiful summer so far, and I’ve been lucky to see so many amazing Lake Erie sunsets. I love the fact that there is a new episode every night.  Take a look […]

I’m a Sea-Doo Babe

Posted on July 23rd, 2010 by Maria Santoferraro

Last week I took a Sea-Doo (Jet Ski) ride on Lake Erie to Margaritaville, a local watering hole with an awesome deck that overlooks Cold Creek in Sandusky, Ohio. On weekends in the summer, the place packs in plenty of bikers and party lovers for cold brews, great margaritas, live bands, and tasty Mexican food. […]

Beaches and Beer (BB#2)

Posted on July 6th, 2010 by Maria Santoferraro

Hope you had a wonderful and long holiday weekend! Mine was a blast and, as I predicted, I am sunburned, a tad bit bloated, and very happy. It is going to take me a day or two to get back into the groove after spending all weekend by the water, on the water, in the […]

It was a great weekend for sunsets on Lake Erie. I posted my pictures from the Friday night sunset on the MariaMedia Facebook page and here are a few of the amazing sights I enjoyed while sipping a chilled glass of chardonnay on Sunday night after all the storms passed through. It was really dark […]
