Vermilion: A Small Town On A Great Lake

A couple of weekends ago I drove with Poppy and Sebastian out to Ohio for a big family weekend at his dad's beach house on Lake Erie. Sebastian's dad Ted is a Fellow at the Cleveland Foundation, and about a year ago he and his wife Shannon moved to Ohio so that Ted could be closer to his work. In addition to their home in the city, Ted and Shannon have a lovely waterfront cottage in the town of Vermilion.  The town's little main street looks like a movie set (complete with an adorable soda fountain), and is nestled along a river and harbor which are full of lovely sailboats. We spent plenty of time at the beach (which was dog friendly!), had a picnic on the water, visited an auction, did some antiquing, and ate lots of ice cream.
Ohio, you're for me.
