News and views, and history and humor, about the lake I love.

"I can hear my granddad's stories of the storms out on Lake Erie, where vessels and cargos and fortunes, and sailors' lives were lost." ~ James Taylor, Millworker

A Day at Put-in-Bay

I thought I'd share a few pics from last Friday afternoon when I group of us took a 21' Lyman over to the island. After a picnic in the park, we walked around town, had ice cream, and waited out a thunderstorm before heading back. What a day!

This looks like fun!
P-I-B is a great place to see classic Lymans. This baby blue boat is a beauty.
Great Blue Heron - a true Lake Erie icon
Perry's Victory & International Peace Memorial undergoing repairs
Black squirrel, common on the island and in Ohio generally
This unique home, utilizing the pilot house of an old lake freighter, sits on the north shore of the island


  1. I took a lot of these same photos at PIB years ago, including one of a black squirrel when I was there 5 years ago! ~Mary

  2. Could it be the same squirrel? :-)
