Fox Haven Marina -

 August 26, 2001 

We left Put-in-Bay on Thursday morning after having spent a second, very lazy, rainy day (Wednesday) in the village and chilling out on the boat. It was only a quick 1 1/2 hour cruise to Catawba Island/West Harbor. We had a wonderful visit with Brian's Dad, Mom, sister Cindy, brother Kevin and his family, sister Marcia, and cousin Kay over the last four days. For the most part, we simply visited, talked ... and ate. Brian and I want to thank each of them again for driving us around (we got to go to a Wal-Mart!) and for driving up/down/over to see us. It was great seeing you all! [For the boaters, the Fox Haven Marina, although apparently not a big transient marina, worked well. The regular slip holders were very friendly and the 700+ slip marina clean and professional ($1/foot/night). However, the shopping area (Wal-Mart, IGA, Boat/US, etc) is approximately 5 miles away.]

By the way, the peaches and melons from this area at this time of year are wonderful!

As a side note, we have taken and gotten 7 rolls of film developed thus far. Some of the pictures are pretty good (if we do say so ourselves), especially considering we are using a basic 35mm point-and-click camera. Seeing Brian's family and showing them the pictures gave us the opportunity to "re-live" the trip all over again - - we are ready to go back and do it again!
