A Lake Beachfront Weekend
It’s Labor Day, a day to celebrate and pay tribute to the achievements of American and Canadian workers.
I spent the long weekend at a beachfront condo, on Lake Erie, with my daughter in Geneva Ohio. We go away once a year together, just the two of us, and always have a wonderful time.
The lake view from our condo.
This was a dock that extended past the beach with two benches at the end.
The beach always had people on it until dark, there was another side of the beach to the right.
It was too hot to swim in the pool.
Sunday we went to Geneva-on-the-Lake, it was extremely busy.
We drove to Ashtabula Ohio and ate at my favorite seafood restaurant.
The shrimp, scallops, lobster tail and twice baked potato were absolutely delicious, I was stuffed!
This is the Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake, it is gorgeous inside.
We weren’t too impressed with the Old Mill Winery, this was winery stop #1 and ended up being the only one we thought wasn’t worth going to.
This sign is showing all the winery’s and how far away they are.
We really enjoyed stopping at the Ferrante Winery, this is winery #2.
Ferrante Winery was beautiful inside and out. They even had entertainment and a restaurant.
We bought these three bottles!
Sunday we visited seven more wineries, and no we didn’t drink at any of them, they were just so unique, had entertainment and so many beautiful flowers.
Debonne Vineyards was Winery #3.
Laurentia Winery is winery #4.
South River Vineyard
South River Vineyard was #5.
M Cellars was #6.
Red Eagle Distillery was closed by the time we got there and it was #7.
The Winery at Spring Hill is #8 and they were closed too.
Huntley Cellars was #9 and all we had time for as they were all closing up, there are so many more in the area.
My daughter caught me on our balcony listening to the waves and watching our last sunset.
Enjoying a glass of wine on the balcony.
We have to check out of our condo by 11:00 am today. We will drive back to my house to celebrate my daughters birthday with the grandkids, our gifts and a cake.
The weather couldn’t have been any better for a September weekend, sunny and upper 80’s not to mention the sunsets on the lake!
Last but not least, thank you to my husband as he took care of the grandkids while we were gone, he never complained and is the best husband ever!
