Ohio's North Shore

We are back from our quick 2-day trip to Lake Erie, where we saw the sights of Port Clinton, Catawba, Marblehead, Put-In-Bay Island, and Kelley's Island. What a beautiful area of the great state of Ohio - one that I was not familiar with at all being a southern Ohio girl; I have had little opportunity to visit or sight-see in that area.

From the ferry taking us across Lake Erie to Put-In-Bay.

Put-In-Bay's downtown park with Lake Erie in the distance.

Monument honoring Cmdr. Perry on PIB Island.
View from Marblehead of Lake Erie.
Marblehead Lighthouse, world's oldest in continuous use.
Marblehead Lighthouse Museum; closed at the time; but I'd like to visit again.
The main attraction on Kelley's Island is this impressive limestone formation.

Glacial Grooves are formed in the limestone; the area is cared for by ODNR.
We had a leisurely, relaxing couple of days away. Much needed after preparing for the Fraternity Bash. We are glad to have had the chance for a little getaway, and also very glad to be back home.

More on my stitching tomorrow!
Happy Quilting, Friends!
