It’s Tuesday and it’s another beautiful day here in Pennsylvania. Thanks for stopping by for Tuesday Tidbits!
We’ve been having lots of summertime fun.
There have been hotdogs roasted and s’mores galore …made here at the LakeHouse!
The Purpilicious Kayak named Summer Lovin’ … made several voyages on the Lake! What a fun way to get some exercise!
We had a fun 4th of July with family and friends!
A visit to the local Buffalo Farm is always a must…
That’s correct… this is not Yellowstone!
We visited Lake Erie and saw the Lettie G. Howard out on the Bay. The Tall Ships will be at Erie in August… and I hope to see more then.
When growing up here in Northwest Pennsylvania I never realized what a gem Presque Isle was! Now I know! 13 beaches and beautiful bike trails line this spectacular peninsula! Just a short ride from the LakeHouse we can be at Lake Erie Presque Isle. It’s always a treat for the eyes!
It’s also home to Perry Monument…
Named after Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry who was a naval commander in the War of 1812. He placed his men at the Peninsula which served to be protection from the enemy. The British became vulnerable when they came around the peninsula and into the Bay where Perry’s men were hiding. Victory over the British in the War of 1812… took place here.
3 light houses are located at Presque Isle and a visit to one turned out to be more then what I expected!
We decided to climb the stairs to the top! All 78 of them!
Around every turn there were windows …with a view of Lake Erie and a breeze that felt wonderful!
At the last turn we had to climb a ladder and through a hatch…
Which led us to the top!
The view of Lake Erie was incredible!
And sweet Man was sure to get a picture of me waving at the top!
It’s such a pretty light house!
Our 𝕊𝕌𝕄𝕄𝔼ℝ𝕋𝕀𝕄𝔼 𝔽𝕌ℕ has not stopped here… I will share our visit to Canada and Titusville, Pennsylvania in my next posts. So please stay tuned!
In the meanwhile… I’ll be looking for sea glass.
