Two weekends ago, Tom and I ventured along the coast of Ohio to spend an evening on the island of Put-In-Bay. Once we arrived, we took a short ferry ride across the bay which was filled with little sailboats. 
The streets of downtown Put-In-Bay are filled with restaurants, bars, and even little candy shops. Put-In-Bay is undoubtedly known for its bar scene, and we stopped at two bars while we were there. The first was called Mojito Bay, which was set up like a tiki bar with swings for bar stools and sand covering the ground. Their name serves them right, they did have the most amazing mojitos. 
We also stopped at a bar called The Keys, a large bar filled with colorful umbrellas that sits right in front of a popular docking spot for boats. We sipped pina coladas and swapped stories with the couple next to us.
It also happened to be Pirate Weekend while we were there, and people dressed in elaborate costumes filled the island. There were even demonstrations of real cannons in the park, which made everyone on the island jump every time they would go off.

After a few drinks we headed near the water to take in the views of the lake and enjoy the sunshine. We walked along the shore admiring the lake-front houses and all of the boats that filled the marinas.

We were sure to grab an ice cream cone (with sprinkles) from the Put-In-Bay Candy Bar before catching the ferry back to the mainland. As we crossed the lake we were able to catch the most beautiful view of the sun setting over the water.

I can't wait to go back again and hopefully get to spend more time exploring the island.
