Today we again had lovely blue skies even if it was a little warm. Our timing on pulling out of camp was better as we left about 9:40, driving along State Road 6 so that we could view the shore as much as possible. The farm land in the area was lovely, and we enjoyed the ride next to Lake Erie very much. Driving eastward along the shore road, our minds were boggled at the size and style of so many of the homes. It was almost funny to see these multi-million dollar estates built as close to each other (some even closer!) as we are in Del Webb!
The two of us decided that the little town of Vermillion was probably the prettiest one we saw today. It just made us feel happy to drive through it. We made a couple of stops to take pictures as we drove through town, one of which would have almost rivaled the backup job John did on the coast of Oregon so many years ago…you know what we are talking about Jerry and Judy!! We had an exciting few minutes involving both the backing up and a LARGE delivery truck trying to occupy the same space we were in…luckily we lived to tell the tale!
The skyline of Cleveland was impressive as we drove though at noon heading to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We figured that since we were in Cleveland, we would be foolish to miss seeing the museum, and we are very glad we went. It is VERY remarkable and one could easily spend many days walking through the exhibits and watching the video presentations. According to the brochure, "to capture the ever-evolving spirit of rock and roll, the exhibits are changed frequently, and some items are displayed on a temporary basis."
The parking for RVs wasn’t the best we have ever encountered (non-existent, in fact) and so we had to park on the street, taking up two metered spots, so we could go to the museum
The facility is located right on the shore of Lake Erie and the views from the different levels of the building were spectacular, especially since this was such a pretty day. There is a restaurant there that has seating out on a large balcony overlooking the lake, and many folks were taking advantage of the lovely day and eating out there. Since we were pushed for time, we didn't eat until we got back in the RV but the food looked to be delicious.
We left the museum and Cleveland around 2:45 on our way to our campground for the night
Our home for the night is at Kenisee’s Grand River Camp in Geneva, Ohio. Our site isn't level (a fact of life most of the time, it seems!) but the electricity is good and we have a great view of their little lake from our rig. Very nice stop for the evening.
We drove 116 miles today.
