Aug 8, 2014 Erie – Cleveland OH
So we plan a route to Cleveland. The lake was calm and we left early. A beautiful day on the water dodging sailboats and fishing boats. We’ve never seen so many. Making our way to Cleveland which is about a 3 ½ hour travel time for us, we start to plan our island hopping. Discussing which islands, how long and of course there is that Cedar Point day that is an absolute. Getting into Cleveland there is an outer harbour and inner harbour layout against the swells of the Lake. However, upon needing diesel and a NE wind, tie up for said diesel took manoeuvring. Captain Scott is amazing even in bad winds and no bow thruster. It did take about 4 tries to get in but he did it and we had our slip assignment. We stayed at Lakeside but have since heard about a city marina beside the Science Centre downtown. I think we’ll be stopping there on our way back. Kids have needs too, apparently. Lakeside is a nice marina with a small pool, restaurant and bar. There is a small area to shoot hoops and a small climber for the little ones. Not near anything for supplies or attractions though.
