When in...

We try to enjoy our little blessings in life. Our trips may not be grand but it's a joyous journey to remember.

When in Cleveland, Ohio

When in Door County, Wisconsin

When in Cleveland, Ohio


Even just spending a day on a particular place, visiting the local market and meeting people are always a great fun.

Visit West Side Market, Cleveland's public market

Inside you will find a big horn head

Some hot chili, "SLAP YA MAMA"

Try the local food like Frank's Bratwurst with sauerkraut yum..

And Crepes De Luxe children and old alike are  lining up for


Find some interesting walls like  this one at the wall of the Market Garden Brewery.

Meet some locals like Rocky

Take a dip at Lake Erie even if you are not that ready.

Get your feet wet

Even do a dab which young gen are doing

Have fun.

And just explore...

When in Door County, Wisconsin


A quaint kind of town

Visited the village of Ephraim, a four hours drive from the place we call home.

Summer is the season to enjoy the sun
while you dip your feet in the cool water of Lake Michigan

Boats are a plenty. You can do jet ski, paddle board and kayak 

obviously enjoyed by the people who visited the village.

Had lunch at Wilson's Restaurant & Ice Cream Parlor. Food was good. I had a Whitefish sandwich basket while my wife tried the Mushroom burger. The kids had a cheeseburger and a hot dog. Wilson's make their own rootbeer and an array of delicious ice cream flavors.

After lunch we hung out along the shore and took some photographs.

Before heading home, we made a final stop at the Peninsula State Park.  It's over 3.7K acres. Due to the vastness of the park and time constraint, we were able to visit only two spots - the Eagle Panorama and the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse.

The Eagle Panorama provided a glimpse of Horseshoe Island. We used it as a background for a family photo.

Placed it on the palm of my hand...

...took a bite of it...

...even pushed it with our tiny little finger.

There are a lot of trails you can take... but we never did!

The Historic  Eagle Bluff Lighthouse was built on 1866.

The museum was closed so we just stayed out on the grounds and took more pictures of us.

One more  photo before we go.

Adjacent to the Peninsula State Park was our next stop - the village of Fish Creek .  The main reason we were there was to have dinner at Pelletier's Restaurant for the "Fish Boil".

While waiting for our table, we watched Master Boiler/Owner Matthew Peterson perform an actual fish boil.

Just before the fish and potatoes were taken out of the fire pit, Matthew threw some kerosene on to the fire.

And then the beast was released

I had to take a few steps back, not to capture this picture as it got bigger,  because it's way too hot to be standing next to the fire. Since I was wearing shorts, I was afraid that the hair on my legs burned.

After the fire show while waiting for our seat, we visited some shops.

Had another chance to see a fish boil.

They served whitefish (little bony) with potatoes and onion.  The meal was great. Got a local brew beer to go along with my dinner.  


It was a perfect day that ended really well.
