The below quotes are from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, as are many quotes on this website:

"Marblehead Lighthouse in Marblehead, Ohio is the oldest lighthouse in continuous operation on the United States side of the Great Lakes. It has guided sailors safely along the rocky shores of Marblehead Peninsula since 1822, and is an active aid to navigation.

Marblehead Lighhouse and the sign
Contractor William Kelly built the 50-foot tower of native limestone on the tip of the Marblehead Peninsula. The base of the tower is 25-feet in diameter, with walls 5-feet thick. It narrows to 12 feet at the top with 2-foot thick walls. Through history, 15 lighthouse keepers, two of whom were women, have tended the beacon.

The lighthouse is now part of the 9-acre Marblehead Lighthouse State Park. The park features picnic tables and offers views of Lake Erie, Sandusky Bay, Kelleys Island and South Bass Island (Put-in-Bay).
The sign pictured below tells about the view from alongside Marblehead Lighthouse. Cedar Point is the amusement park that the two RV Gypsies and their grandson will visit after leaving here.

Alex photographed a water moccasin snake - they are protected at Lake Erie, and are NOT said to be poisonous.

Back at the RV of the two RV Gypsies, Lee and Alex wrestled for the recliner. Each evening has been full of laughter as these two mess around. Alex will be missed when it is time for him to fly home. This RV is the only home of the two RV Gypsies, so they don't have to fly anyplace.
