the unplanned day

day 3

Today we had zero plans. Today we did whatever we felt like. Today we drove through a really sketchy downtown.We started our day by heading to Lake Erie. We found this local lighthouse and went to check it out. It was probably the funniest thing ever. It was like someone looked at it and said, "Hey, let's try to make money by charging people a ridiculous fee." It cost $7 to tour the lighthouse, but you couldn't wear flip flops or sandals. This was something they forgot to mention
on the website. You could walk around the grounds for free, but Becks and I felt weird cause there were workers watching us. On the upside, leaving the lighthouse right away led us to an adorable little park with a path down the the shore. It was not a tourist attraction, but it was very nice for a local place to hang out, as many locals did.
We then started our drive back to our town. We had a gorgeous drive along the lake and we stopped for lunch at a cute little town that had a coffee shop/cafe. After filling out bellies, we continued on our way.

In the town we are currently staying in there is a chocolate shop that Becky found online. However, there was road construction and we couldn't find it. This is a fact that I can happily live with because that downtown was totally scary. It was kinda run down and shabby looking. Needless to say, we headed back to the hotel. We then found a dollar theater and saw Killers. * note: I do NOT recommend this movie. I had been curious about it, and genuinely wanted to see it. However, it was a little confusing and had a stupid end.

Tonight we will plan our tomorrow which includes leaving PA and heading back to Ohio.

Mams, here's my shout out to you. Love ya!

later days,
