This photo is taken from atop the Perry Monument, and shows the main town and bay. Put-in-Bay is an island in Lake Erie, one of the five Great Lakes, not too far from Sandusky, if you are planning a Cedar Point trip.

Perry Monument

There was a terrible navel battle near here in 1812, both sides suffered heavy casualties. A general truce was enacted to care for the wounded. This monument is for that truce and has the names of those killed on both sides lining the inner walls.

I just love this!

Live bait in a can!! I don't know if these vending machines can be found anywhere else, but I know of two in Ohio. I had to put this picture here, so you wouldn't miss it.

    I'm still smiling. What a delight to read your "inspirational" descriptions. I think you have fun or make fun whenever you travel. One-of-a-kind photographs.

    How hilarious; a drive-by flasing by bicycle! Disturbing yet oddly funny. :p Neat tips! You are creative with a few. Never heard the nickname before but I'll watch for you 'bandits' next time! ;)

    I live very close to Put Out Bay and still haven't done the wild weekend there... only the sedate Kelley's Island for me so far ... but now I must go to the party island. It's nice to have a perspective from someone other than a Clevelander.
