OHIO'S LAKE ERIE ISLANDS 2013 LABOR DAY WEEKEND-BATTLE OF LAKE ERIE

OHIO'S LAKE ERIE ISLANDS 2013 LABOR DAY WEEKEND-BATTLE OF LAKE ERIE

 

For those of us who live in the Northern OH, we have the opportunity to visit the Lake Erie Islands for a day if we so choose, rather than an extended vacation (although extended vacations are possible with bed & breakfasts, etc.).  And, for the day, we feel like we are far away.  We have access to the islands through our water transport of choice: i.e. Miller Ferry (for people, bikes and cars), the Jet Express (fast hover crafts), the Goodtime I (a leisurely trip on the Lake), private sailboat or powerboat, etc.

The Labor Day Weekend celebration is different this year because of the Bicentennial of the Battle of Lake Erie.  For complete info on all of the activities, go to: http://battleoflakeerie-bicentennial.com/.

Tall Ships for the Battle of Lake Erie Bicentennial 8-13 & 9-13

We took the GoodTime I to Put-in-Bay on South Bass Island , on Thursday, August 29, 2013 for a day, to watch the arrival of the Tall Ships, the begining of the of the Bicentennial of the Battle of Lake Erie Bicentennial celebration.  You have the opportunity to be a part of the Celebration Saturday, Sunday & Monday (8/31, 9/1 & 9/2).

The reinactment of the Battle will take place on Monday, 9/2.  Currently the British Tall Ships are in Canadian waters and the American Tall Ships are in American waters.  .

Put-in Bay is flying both the American flag and Canadian flag in various locations in honor of the Bicentennial, which has meaning for both countries.                                                  Battle of Lake Erie Bicentennial --flying American & Canadian Flags

Toni, thank you for your response.  We saw the Tall ships arrive, but spending Labor Day with family. Have a great Holiday.

Joe, thanks so much for the well wishes.  Have a wonderful time with your family.

Conrad, thanks for your comment.  We are lucky to be a mile from Lake Erie "as the crow flies."

What a beautiful and very relaxing picture.  Lets just hope the weather cooperates for the end of this hectic summer season.

Chris & Dick, thank you for your comment.  We were on a cruise ship when the captain stopped to let the passengers take photos.  My camera captured the beauty we saw.  Enjoy the rest of your Labor Day weekend!

I hope the weather will be good for a great turnout and event. The boats look incredible with their sails. Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Pat and Steve, that is an excellent event to attend, and most likely one of the last water events for the year.  Hope you have a great time!!!

George, thank you for your comment.  We were able to see the arrival of the tall ships, but we will be with family on Labor Day, the day of the re-enactment.  Family is so incredibly important.

Roy, thanks so much for your comment.  May you have a great September as well!

That would float my boat. Neat to see the maple leaf in red waving. Like here on the border of Canada which is a mile and half from this hunt and peck spell check.

I hope you both had a great Labor Day Weekend, Pat & Steve.

Andrew, thanks for your response.  We have been to all of the American, public islands in Lake Erie.  Next year, we want to go to Pelee Island which is in the Canadian waters of Lake Erie.  But, we need to renew our passports.  Canada will allow us to come by water with a driver's license and an original birth certificate, but it's a "gray area" for coming back home.

Toni, thanks so much for the response.  We did.  And, we hope you did too.

I hope you are having an outstanding week with your camera in hand.

Pat  Love post on the Lake ERie Islands _ probably good both America and British ships didn't renew the battle

Roy, I have been following your advice about the camera.  I hope you are having an outstanding week too.

Karen, thank you for the compliment and comment.
