Vermilion, Ohio

 This past Saturday we headed out to attend a walleye festival.  Along the way we drove through Vermilion, Ohio, one of my favorite little towns.

 It's home to the Cleveland Yacht Club which sits on the Vermilion River which leads out to Lake Erie.  There is the quaintest boating community here called The Vermilion Lagoons.
 The lagoons were created right on the river so people could live in the houses built here and pull their boats right up to their homes the same as they park their cars.

 The houses are all white with white picket fences.

 A perfect Memorial Day setting.

 Here is the lagoon.

 You can jump on your boat and be on Lake Erie in no time at all.

 I just wonder how you keep your kids and dogs from falling in.

 There are quite a number of these lagoons all lined with these picture perfect houses.

 Lake Erie, or as it is known in October, Lake Eerie.

 Beautiful beaches.

After the sightseeing we went to the festival and stayed for about 5 minutes.  It was a total bust.
