The lights are out, the candles are lit, and everything's turned off except my computer. But that's running on battery power, so I'm going to count that as Earth Hour-compliant.
I thought that in honour of the day I would share a few pictures from some power-free hours I spent wandering the shores of Lake Erie with a couple of pals.

Camping at Rock Point Provincial Park is one of my favourite things to do in the summer. I usually manage to get there at least two or three times a year.

When the afternoon wanes, we generally take a slow stroll along the shore toward the sunset.
The light is just incredible, changing constantly but ever so subtly, so that just when you think you know the shore you look around and realize it's completely different again.
Observing Earth Hour reminds me to treasure hours like these. Just a couple of pals and a sunset shore and a hundred thousand fossils.
Or nights like tonight. Just me, my candlelit Treehouse loft, a pile of soft pillows, the night sky outside the glass doors, and a few minutes alone with my thoughts.
