BOA Continues…

Monday’s after the events our vacation begins for the week and usually after a few errands we try to find fun things to do. Our drive was cloudy and rainy but was only 215 miles to the water, Lake Erie to be exact where we spent 3 days relaxing and checking out the area.

We are once again staying at the Quality Inn right on Lake Erie with a fantastic view...


This time we were upgraded to the King bed right on the lake with a Jacuzzi...


 and living room area...now we're talking.


Our first day we went to dinner on Lake Erie at Dock’s BeachHouse Restaurant, 252 W Lakeshore Drive in Port Clinton, Ohio. 


We both had the Perch Basket and Fried Mushrooms and it was delicious. Perch here in the east is how I like, not like out west where they serve sunfish and call it perch, which is a huge difference. 



We also had a Raspberry Lemonade Sangria which was yummy too!



On our second day, we were going to explore the area but the rain was continuous so we just hung out and enjoyed our view. We are getting our Perch fix by eating more today but this time we got our perch at Jolly Roger Seafood House in Port Clinton, Ohio. Located right next to our hotel. Everything they serve tastes so fresh, as if they just caught it, cut it and served it.


After a night of some severe storms around the area, nothing near us but they kept interrupting the TV station to give us updates on the tornadoes which was nerve wracking. We awoke to a beautiful morning with no rain, just chilly but we took advantage and went exploring. The winds were high and the waves have been crashing all day which is a wonderful sound for me and it made the drive around Lake Erie breathtaking.




We stopped at Marblehead Lighthouse during our drive. Absolutely LOVE Lighthouses!


 




We are still on the hunt for my Faygo Rock & Rye but so far no luck, but we are finding some special bottles of wines, more on those tastes much later.


On Friday we dropped off the trailer at the event and ran some errands. We stopped for lunch at Applebee’s and since it was right next door we had cocktails and it was delightful.








Our second event was not as successful as the first, we didn’t quite make our goal, but we made it through without too much pain. Now we head to Alabama, but we have a few fun things planned for us before we get there.

Why don’t they make “Do Not Disturb” signs that stay on the frigging doorknobs?

We never have any housekeeping come in our rooms so our sign is always on the knob and it never fails, on Sunday especially, when we are in pain and recuperating and anytime we go in and out the door the sign falls off and it is not pretty when either one of us have to pick it up…ugh!

Now that all our errands are done today, the rest of our day will be spent in bed watching NASCAR and napping.

I love lighthouses, too. Enjoy your drive to Alabama and be safe.
