Sometimes it is nice to just have a little stroll around a town that you are not familiar with. You just never know what you might find.
Chris and I took a morning to take in the sights in Port Clinton on a sunny day in June. Port Clinton is also known as the Walleye Capital of the World and while I did not fish or eat any walleye while we were there I still consider the trip a success.
Boasting just over 6000 residents the sleepy little town comes alive during the summer months when Lake Erie tourists can be found eating, drinking and shopping in several of the establishments that line the streets.
Some of the buildings feature old architecture which is always a great thing to photograph.
We stopped into several shops including this popcorn shop where they freely dole out the samples of their many flavors of popcorn. Yum.
A little park where there is a Little Free Library and a pretty nice statue also features a beautiful mural.
We ate lunch on the waterfront and I was thrilled to see that Chris had gotten me a special gift.
Not really but it was a great photo opp for me and I loved that there is a Port Clinton boat bearing my name.
Birds were everywhere,
The mayfly invasion had just started and since they favor light colored buildings this was the case on many of the buildings.
Port Clinton is the county seat for Ottawa County and is located about 44 miles east of Toledo. It is a popular destination for boating and fishing and has a downtown that appears to be trying to serve locals and tourists alike. If you are in the area take a walk down the main street, stop in for some free popcorn and enjoy lunch on the waterfront like we did. I don’t think you will be disappointed.

Looks like a charming place. Love the old buildings. Lucky you to have a boat named after you!!
Looks like a quaint place to visit and how nice that you found “your” boat there. 😉
What a fun place to explore!
What a gem of a little city! Though, I suspect the popcorn place might enjoy it if some people bought popcorn too… LOL 😉
My kind of town.
BTW, Baudette, in northern Minnesota, promotes itself as The Walleye Capital of the World. Interesting, huh?
It looks so pretty. The blue sky is such a nice backdrop against the older historic buildings. And hello, nice “gift”. 😂
A charming little town with a lot to see.
It is a fun little town. I am sure there is a lot going on during Walleye season!
It looks like a nice relaxing day for you and Chris. Love the boat and the statue of the granddad(?) and little boy.
It was the perfect day. Soemeimts we have the best times when it is a casual and unplanned day.
