Too Pooped to Post

Or not. The GG spent his last birthday (it had a goddamn zero in it, as did mine a few months earlier) camping on Kelley’s Island. This weekend, he went back and this time he dragged yer fav-o-rite blahgger along.

I took Friday afternoon off so that we weren’t fighting rush hour traffic down through the Great Lake State Megalopolis and then through northern Ohio. That turned out to be a good decision, well, except for the fact that we were STARVING so we grabbed small hamburgers and french fries from the Dundee McDonald’s. (Don’t tell our kids!)

So, we drove through northern Ohio and, miraculously, when we arrived at the Kelley’s Island ferry, we were ushered on immediately. I was a bit nervous at first. My last car ferry experience was out on the huge ferries that service the San Juan Islands. This ferry was kind of small and the weather was a bit rough albeit not enough that I had a problem walking up the stairs to where I could observe what was going on. There are two ferries and this is the other one.


And so we got off the ferry and drove a mile up from town to the gorgeous state park on the north side of the island. Here is where we parked the Mean Green Frog Hoppin’ Musheen and Lyme Lounge. We were a very short walk away from the flushy terlets and showers and that was a good thing fer yer fav-o-rite blahgger. And we could walk from this space to anywhere on the island. Beaches and old quarries and dinner downtown.


I loved Kelley’s Island and I will write more about it this week. And we’ll be back!

    Sounds like a very fun time. Washington ferries are huge! Even our Anderson Island Ferry is pretty good sized. 🙂

    We almost always stop for small burgers and fries (that we share with weenie dogs) on our drive to Harstine on Friday nights. We especially like Whopper Jrs. (Getting to be a drag to eat them in the dark). The Lyme Lounge is utterly adorable.
