We had a really nice cruise around the city on the Goodtime III. We both learned a lot of interesting history and had a nice time in perfect weather.
Cleveland Aquarium is just a tiny little place but full of so much history! And had these guys which I LOVED watching. Turtles may be slow but when the high school volunteer accidently leaves their cage open when he is cleaning they can sure move!!! :-) LOL
West Side Market . . . this was my first time at anything like this and WOW!!! Fresh meat, herbs, baked goods, fish, seafood of all kinds, pork heads . . . you name it, it was there! Overwhelming to say the least! Got some amazing pepperoni rolls, sourdough bread and sweet, fresh popcorn for the kids.
The newest landmark in downtown Cleveland. This chandelier right over the street in the theater district. Quite a sight all lit up at night
While we were in Cleveland we heard, along with the rest of the city, that LeBron James had decided to return to Cleveland to play basketball. For my Cavs fan husband, this was a really fun experience to be downtown and see and hear all the cheers, see the signs appearing everywhere and the TV crews all around the city getting feedback from the people. Didn't mean much to me, but I was happy for him that he was downtown for all that hype and experience. Capped it all off with a trip to the largest Candy Warehouse in the US and an Indians game!
A trip to Melt on the way home for the best Monte Cristo I have ever eaten was the icing on the cake. Thanks to my parents for watching the kids for a weekend so we could go. Although our legs were exhausted from all the walking around the city, we were absolutely refreshed!
