|My beautiful mother|
Yesterday I took her to Geneva-on-the-Lake, on the shores of Lake Erie. It boasts as Ohio's "First Summer Resort". Though the fun started in 1869 when the first carnival park "Sturgeon Point" was built the early 1900's it was a popular getaway to the Midwest "gentry" like John D Rockefeller, Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone. There are old style arcades, restaurants (Eddie's Grill is pretty much the same as it was in the 50's), lots of tiny cottages and Lake Erie wineries, one of which is where we had lunch, the Old Firehouse Winery (pictured above). When we got home the house was empty so we threw on some shorts and I took her out on the boat.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. I'll be back wielding binding needles in a matter of hours.....and missing my mom (and other family member too, of course!)
Summer breeze makes me feel fine..........at the Shores
