Lakeside F-U-N ~

Hooking at Lakeside, Ohio, is now just a wonderful memory.  Three days of hooking heaven.  Gorgeous weather, great food, wonderful hooking friends both old and new.  I just can't say enough good things about Katie's retreat.  This is the "cottage" we stayed in.  I think it can sleep about twenty.  If interested, it is for sale and the price has been reduced to $890,000.00 :) .  It is not a lakefront property, but looking out from the front porch, you look upon a park and the lake is beyond that.  

Remnants of an old fountain in the park . . .

. . . sitting near the cannon.

Hotel Lakeside, built in 1875 is nearby.  

VERY Victorian.

Looking out on to Lake Erie.

Just a few of the "cottages" at Lakeside.  See the plaque above the door?

How fun is that?  What a great mom and dad :)

Friday's sunset over Lake Erie.  The sky changes quickly in a matter of minutes.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  In my next post, I will share some hooking.
Pug hugs :)
