So, on Friday I’m happy to say I felt better. Drove up to Cedar Point at about 2pm, check-in wasn’t until 4 so we wanted to time this correctly. I used the GPS even though we know how to get there, we weren’t sure how specifically to get to the Hotel. My GPS didn’t show Cedar Point, so I had to do it by the address for the hotel. Just so you know, there is also a One Cedar Point Road, and it is not by One Cedar Point Drive. Is it however an unbelievably beautiful place. Gorgeous houses, with fantastic Views. If you see some grey condos in the pictures, that was the place we went by accident.
Back on track found the hotel. To get to the hotel you take a road that goes around the amusement park. It’s pretty cool to see everything from the back. Hotel was pretty cool, room was very small, and in the section of the hotel that has not really been updated in 60 years, except for a few odd things. Our room was on the first floor, looking out onto the pool and Lake Erie. Fan – freakin – tastic! And the Window opened!! Of course this meant everyone coming out of the hotel looked directly into our room. Oops. But the sound was so nice. There was also a great breeze coming off the water which made the accoustic ceiling tiles ruffle. It was really funny.
The amusement park was a two minute walk along the boardwalk next to the water. The park was so cool! First time I’ve ever been there with so few people. There are huge coasters there (that we don’t ride) but normally the lines are two and three hour waits. They were running them Not Full! The whole halloween theme was really fun, lots of fog and lights and scarey people jumping out at us. Good times.
Saturday was kind of a bust! It was rainy and dreary. We drove to Port Clinton, ohio to go through the African Safari but decided not to when we got there. To much water coming out of the sky. We did however have lunch a place called Dianas Restaurant and Deli where I had a fantastic breakfast and oogled good looking young men.
So we drove around Port Clinton, then headed home. On the way home we stopped at Magee Marsh wildlife preserve and went to the beach there. They closed the beach so it’s kind of interesting to see it reverting back to a non-human beach. No garbage, no cleaned sand.
