Red, White and Lime?

Liz’s parents maintain both a pontoon and tow boat, which we would make good use of throughout the day. So with Crew back on board with Jenny, Katie took over as second supervising adult for the second loop of the lake. After about an hour of getting a good base, of course I’m referring to my tan, the group decided to head out on the pontoon boat for another loop around the lake. Well folks, we may have found a crowd that actually appreciates our level of crazy, if only for a day, because Liz’s parents walked away with the 2017 Lime Lake Best American Spirt Trophy.

Putting It In at Put-in-Bay

We chose the first ferry out, which departs at 9am, to maximize our time on the island and because as the cliche goes…you cannot drink all day unless you start in the morning. As it had been about an hour since our last drink, we finally headed back into downtown Put-in-Bay, parked the golf-cart (lots of spots to do so), and headed to one of the more popular daytime drinking bars in the area… They played so many good songs from Michael Jackson to Blink 182 and the whole group had a great time singing and dancing up our last few hours at Put-in-Bay before we had to catch the last Jet Express ferry at 11:30pm. I love Murica; I love Ohio; and I definitely love Put-in-Bay! Looking back on this day and all the fun memories that were created with an amazing group of friends really brings a smile to my face.

Oh The Heart of It All

So why would a guy that lives in New York City, home of the nation’s largest Fourth of July celebration 500 feet from his doorstep, head to Ohio for Independence Day? Toledo, Ohio is where White Shorts and Mr. P call home and my goal this weekend is to figure out if this city of approximately 300,000 is truly as nice as Jenny’s Instagram feed would lend someone to believe, or if heavy duty filtering is at play here. OurTwoSuitCases is planning on making a music video to document the weekend, which I’m convinced is just Mr. P’s excuse for obtaining incriminating footage and to provide for hours of his own entertainment in the “editing” room. We arrived at Cedar Point and kicked it off the the way any adult day at a theme park should start…with Jell-O shots in the parking lot.

Costa Maya, Mexico

On my cruise aboard the Norwegian Escape in May of 2017, I had the extreme pleasure of calling on Costa Maya, Mexico, a small cruise port along the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. While I was originally slated to spend the day sipping cocktails and enjoying the beach at a local resort, Maya Chan, my plans had to quickly change when the resort notified me that a storm the day prior had resulted in the beach being covered with an abundance of sea kelp. Due to the lack of any shore excursions that interested me in the area, I opted to rent a golf cart ($75 U. S. for the day) from a kiosk in the port area and explore the area on my own. About two miles south of the cruise port area, which like most Caribbean destinations consists of a large tourist shopping mall, you will find a small fishing village, Mahahual, which is where I spent hours cruising up and down in my golf cart and just taking in the real beauty of this area.
