Downtown Vermilion, Ohio

Another day date after a morning of fishing. We love to walk downtown Vermilion, look in store windows and people watch. Saturdays they have their outdoor market and it attracts a lot of tourists. The vermilion yacht club pool was filled with everyone trying to cool off. It was 90° outside but no one cared as they were all trying to enjoy as much summer as they could.

Rudy’s for lunch
Probably the best chili I’ve ever tasted
My side salad hit the spot
Fall and Winter candles have arrived!
John’s store!
Monroe decorated the windows with vintage Vermilion High School memorabilia!

Day date!

Last Sunday we enjoyed a delicious lunch at Rudy’s in vermilion. It’s a bar and grill near downtown Vermilion, Ohio. The menu has a large variety of appetizers, burgers, wings, sandwiches and sides. The head cook is amazing and she always has the freshest food and the best recipes for her menu. After lunch we walked around and checked out all the quant little shops. Now in typical small town America, a lot of places are closed on Sunday’s. As inconvenient as this may be, i secretly love that they do this because years ago (many, many years ago) most places were closed on Sunday!!!

Fish Festival

What a wonderful day in Vermilion, Ohio! Father’s Day weekend is always the weekend they celebrate the Fish Festival. Friday evening they kicked it off with fireworks. Saturday they had food, live entertainment, kiddie games and vendor tents throughout the downtown area. Sunday they ended the festivities with a parade!

We walked around and enjoyed some live music by about a dozen elderly people. They were all dressed in tropical button downs. They each played a different instrument and they sounded really good.

John was very excited to eat a perch sandwich. He said it was really good. I stole a fancy fry! I packed my lunch so i didn’t have to eat anything unhealthy!
