June 13 – 16, 2016
Monday June 13 – we left Huron for Geneva on the Lake, Ohio. We don’t know anything about this area, but it sounded interesting and there is a Sun Resort there.Big freighter being repaired in Huron.We went through Cleveland. Waved to Chris, who was at work when we drove through.Stadium where the Cleveland Browns play.More windmills along Interstate 90.Welcome to Geneva on the Lake, OhioIndian Creek RV & Camping Resort.The entrance is so nice with all the flags.Very well maintained park. The seasonal campers and park model homes are very well maintained.They gave us site #236 on the pond. Very nice. When we went to put the slide out, the slide topper broke. Just snapped off. Just something else that has to be fixed.The end did not come off on this end.Out site is very long and level with the little pond in the back. Cliff climbed on the roof and got the slide topper disconnected. See it laying on the ground. The topper is made by Carefree, so we checked the internet for local dealers. There is a dealer close to Hamburg, NY which is where we are going next. We set up an appointment for Friday on our way to Hamburg.Lots of geese and ducks.Super nice fire pit with grillThe bundle of fire wood was $6.00. Pretty high.
Tuesday June 14, 2016We decided to go find the Walmart. It is in Ashtabula, Ohio. Small town on Lake Erie.A large coal company right on the water.The main bridge into town.Conveyor to get the coal across the canal.The downtown area is so beautiful. I would have loved to gone in that Harbor Store. Very cute stuff in the window.There are flowers everywhere.Hwy 531 between Ashtabula and GOTL, goes right along the coast. The view these people have of the Lake is incredible.The view on Hwy 531 is beautiful.Not too shabby.They don’t have a view, but it is a very cute house.Nice house, beautiful flowers and an awesome view of the Lake.Check out this Elks Lodge.They have a awesome view too.Just riding along.Then to downtown Geneva on the Lake.it is like a little Gatlinburg. One main drag with stores, games and restaurants.Not everything is open yet for the season.And the oldest miniature golf course in the US.No big chain hotels, just little cottages on Lake Erie.We had lunch at Eddie’s Grill. Heike told us it is a landmark. The hamburger was great.They have outdoor counter seating, indoor and a back patio. You order your food and they call your number when it is ready.In 1950, while still in high school, Eddie Sezon opened Eddie’s Grill with 10 stools.You walk out back of Eddie’s to see the Lake.Most of the houses are for rent.All the little streets deadend into the Lake.We went into a store to buy a sticker and the young man helping us had gone to school in Roane County, TN. He liked us and the owner gave us a ticket to play Fascination. We did not know what this was. They give you 2 balls and a certain amount of time. The first person to get your balls in a row wins. You play against as many people as you want. Since the were only 2 of us, it was pretty easy.I won with the diagonal. You throw the ball under the plastic and try to get it in a certain hole to make a line. 10 minutes of fun. All I won was another token to use for prizes. One token was not going to get me anything, so I gave to a young woman that was playing on the other side of the room.Some fancy golf carts at Indian Creek.
Wednesday, it rained all day and Thursday was overcast. I went to The Lakehouse Spa and had a pedicure. It was great. And we did some laundry.Across the street from the RV park is a walk out. All you can do is walk out on the platform and look around. This beach belongs to the condos across the street. We were not allowed down there.Clouds were rolling in for some more rain.
Friday is a Travel Day. We are off to New York State. Bye Ohio, it has been a blast.
