Memorial Day Weekend arrives!…A welcome start to the boating season.

As we take time this weekend to honor those who have served and sacrificed for our country, we are also excited that the boating season arrives at last. Mother Nature may sprinkle in a pop up shower, but the time has finally arrived for some hot-hot-heat and the flat lakes of summer.

We have been busy as bees getting the marina ready as starting Saturday Putter-Port returns, the Romper Room opens, and the Pool opens as well. See the side column for “R” hours.

Plus, we will always have your favorite flavor of Ice Cream here at your home-port! So be sure to join us this weekend as we celebrate and thank the servicemen and veterans for their service to this great nation and offer remembrance of those we have lost.

We hope to see you dockside!….

How to get a Sunny Disposition…Just add water!

Sure it’s Northern Ohio and we just saw a tad bit of snow last weekend. But hey, you’ve waited the customary 5 minutes and now the Sun is a shining! In fact over the next couple of days there looks to be a lot of it with more on the way.

In fact next week the forecast even calls for near 80 degree temps! And that means, it’s time to get the boat launched and the season underway.

Happy Mother’s Day…to all the hard working Moms out there!

And we think keeping a marina on track can be challenging at times, we know that being a Mom is the top job on the planet. So, with that in mind, why not give mom something she can enjoy all summer. That is a summer of fun at your family fun marina!

The boating season is just about here, so don’t delay. Give Mom a summer at the pool and the kidos can enjoy all the other fun from Ice Cream to Mini-Golf, plus some splash time on the lake! Not only that but we are pretty sure Dad wouldn’t mind some time out in the water as well.

To all the Moms out there, we salute you and know that we’ll be right here dockside when your ready!

So long April, Hello May….Let the fun begin!

You can bet we’re busy as bees in fact, we didn’t let the cooler air slow us down, we even found a nice pool under that winter cover.

Launch Season Arrives… We have what floats your boat!

We’ll take it!..Temps have been at or near the mid-60 mark for several days this week, so several more boats set sail for fun.

Well, to some it may seem a tad early to hit the water, but we have already seen several Captains splashdown as the early bird boaters are put in the water in some very unseasonably mild temps. Some already on their second or third fishing adventure on to the Lake.

Sure we know the saying about April showers, but it’s hard to wait when your getting excited for the May part to get here. Even a soggy start can’t dampen our spirits, or those of some diehards as we have put more boats in the water this week. Now that’s optimism, for even as the rain clouds approach we can see the signs of better days ahead.
