Oak Openings Park - Toledo, OH

We are currently working in the Toledo, OH area remodeling the Lowe's store in Holland, OH.

Something we've learned about Toledo is that it has a host of wonderful parks. One of them is a 3,000+ acre park called Oak Openings.

We spent a couple of hours there one morning after work, and here are some pics.

Toledo Zoo

We love zoos. It's just that simple. But when you have a chance to visit one of the top 10 zoos in the world, that's even better.

Wonderful day at the zoo. The most excitement was Robin getting charged by the gorilla. Him sitting down is the before shot, and the profile pic is just after. I guess he was contemplating his evil ways. Luckily there was Plexiglas separating them.

Put-In-Bay, Ohio

When trying to think of a way to describe Put-In-Bay, Ohio only one thing comes to mind. It's the Key West of Lake Erie.

It's located about 3 miles out in the lake from shore. We took Miller's Ferry, which has been operating since the early 1900's. There's only two ways to get to and from the island...by boat and by plane. Makes sense to me.

We asked a local what the best thing to do while on the island. His response...get drunk. We then asked what we should see while on the island. Again...get drunk. We asked how the winters were on the island. Response...don't know...usually drunk.

Anyway, life is a little slower at the "bay".

Fulton County Fair

We were having dinner at a great restaurant in Toledo (Mancy's) and asked the waitress what she thought would be a fun thing to do that weekend. She immediately suggested we attend the Fulton County Fair just west of Toledo.

We did, and had a marvelous time. We especially enjoyed the corn. I know Robin did.
