Lake Erie Lighthouses Shine On-- Part 1: Put-in-Bay

From the May 25, 2014, Chicago Tribune by Bob Downing of the Akron Beacon Journal.

There are several more lighthouses along Ohio's Lake Erie coast, also called the country's North Shore, and we have seen both he wrote about on our trips to Put-in-Bay, Ohio.

SOUTH BASS LIGHT STATION

"Most visitors to part-happy Put-in-Bay don't notice the old lighthouse on the island, the one with its own ghosts.  The South Bass Light Station (Put-in-Bay is located on South Bass Island and can only be reached by water or air) is tucked on the island';s southwest corner.

"It's not far from the Miller Boat Line ferry dock.  But most ferry passengers head the other way, into town for the fun at one of Ohio's top travel destinations."

Guilty.  We can't wait to check into our room and start hitting the "fun" places like the Round House, Boardwalk and Beer Barrel, especially when Mike "Mad Dog" Adams or Pat Dailey are playing.  There is entertainment starting at noon every weekend day.

Too Much Fun.  --RoadDog
