On Saturday when we left “Roar on the Shore” in downtown Erie, we rode to Presque Isle State Park. We got behind a long stream of traffic going to the state park. The traffic was understandable, as it was a hot summer day!
We ate lunch at Sara’s Restaurant, located at the gateway to Presque Isle State Park. We each ordered an entree-sized grilled chicken salad. The chicken was marinated and warm. The salads were fresh and tasted quite good. As we ate our salads, we noticed people walking away from the counter with orange vanilla twist cones. Boy did they ever look good! We couldn’t resist. We each ordered an orange vanilla twist cone. I learned later that Sara’s Restaurant is famous for its orange sherbet twist cones. The cones tasted every bit as good as they looked!
After lunch we rode to Perry Monument in Presque Isle State Park, where we boarded the 3:00 PM tour aboard the Lady Kate. Our 14-mile, 90-minute tour took us on the open waters of Lake Erie. We enjoyed views of Presque Isle’s shores, Erie’s skyline, lighthouses, ships, the beaches, and Gull Point Nature Preserve. A knowledgeable guide identified and described points of interest along the way.
