7/1/11: Westlake OH to Albany, NY

Went down to the beach on Lake Erie, near our hotel in Westlake.  My squeeze had never seen a Great Lake before.  

Looking east toward Cleveland.


Not much to take pics of this part of the country.  It's all farmland.  Went through a sliver of Pennsylvania.

And this is when I really started to get sad that our trip was nearly over.  The bulk of the country was behind me.  I was on east coast time now.  

First sign for Massachusetts.

Day 6:  approximately 511 miles

Most memorable moments:  Checking out Lake Erie, 'Oh crap we have to walk back up all those stairs?', going through Cleveland, really running out of things to take pictures of except the grape vines in Northern NY, staying our last night at an Extended Stay hotel just like when we started in Washington, delicious pizza delivery to the hotel, no ice machine in the hotel.


  1. Very cool! I feel like I am along for the ride. It sounds like you are having an amazing time.


  2. This was actually last year. I wish it was this year! We had such a fun trip.

  3. Just caught up on the entire adventure. Sure sounds like it was a great trip last year! Hope you will be able to have another adventure again in the near future :)

  4. Nice pics JoJo! I love lake Erie.

  5. I have given you an award! Please stop by when you can to pick it up!


  6. Hey you.

    Popping in to say hello. I'm not getting around much anymore... well in blogland anyway. Been really preoccupied and just trying to keep the wheels in motion.

    Love your photos as always. Hope you and yours are well and happy.

  7. LOL looks like you didnt run out of things to photograph after all :)


  8. I'd really like to go to Cleveland and spend some time. I was born there and lived there until 1957 when I was 6 years old. I haven't been there since 1970 and then only barely passed through. I'd like to just hang around there for awhile to see if it sparked any memories.
