Happy 4th of July!

Hope you all had an amazing Fourth of July! Sunset and fireworks on Lake Erie are hard to beat. First sunset: boats cue up in front of the L-Dock, where the fireworks display is staged. A hundred or so boats will vie for dockside viewing, but remaining up wind from the falling embers is essential!

Ka-Boom! The smoke and gun power explodes- once again we have the rockets red glare. With simultaneous fireworks at Put-in-Bay and Lakeside, one starts to think about the battles that did occur on this lake.

The Put-In-Bay monument in plain view from the Lakeside shore is named for Oliver Hazard Perry, who turned the tide in 1812- "We have met the enemy and they are ours." Tonight we celebrate our freedom once again.

Wishing you all a happy Independance Day!
