Unfortunately, due our habit of relaxing in the morning and then taking time to explore things that seem interesting along the route - we missed the ferry!
|there it goes!|
Instead we decided to check out the Marblehead Lighthouse.

We found it, but it was completely wrapped and under construction. I'm sure it will be beautiful when they're finished......Oh well.
We got back to Maume Bay State Park around dinner time so we decided to go to the Lodge and have a Lake Perch dinner that we'd heard about.
|pretty view from our table|
Dave LOVES Perch and has fond memories of eating it freshly caught, so we were really looking forward to dinner tonight. We'd saved the treat for our last night here.
Shouldn't have built it up so much. It was fine, but didn't live up to expectations. Oh well.....
I say "Oh Well" but I really just mean, oh well, better luck next time. We enjoyed our day nonetheless. It was sunny and we were together with nothing we had to do but see what we could see. And we did that!
We drove around in the little settlement of Lakeside Chautauqua with it's narrow streets lined with sweet cottages and community areas.
And....we saw more beautiful Swans near Port Clinton. My ID's have been confirmed by Eric the Expert.

Well, Swans and a Cormorant to be more precise....
All in all, it was another good day for us. We got a bit of a sunset as we drove through the mostly empty campground and were happy to see Beluga snuggled into her pretty site, waiting for us.
Tomorrow we break camp and move a very short distance to the Wayne County Fairgrounds in Michigan.
Here is tonight's gratuitous picture of sweet, sleepy Lewis in his post prandial position. That's one big yawn!
