Put a little….WOW…in your weekend!

Below are some pics to BOUY you spirits…

With a hot and sunny 4th of July Wednesday already making this a great week, we now look forward to this slight cool down before the Summer temps return for the weekend. In the meantime, our staff here at Romp’s Lake Erie Marina has sent us some pictures taken this week to make sure you don’t get left dockside.

First up Jeff sent us this awesome sunset…

Then, as if not to be outdone, Kyle has sent us this pic of the boat lights in rriver traffic taken at night using still photography. Begging the question how did they go that fast without making a wake?

Celebrate with a bang…

And although Vermilion has already had its fireworks season during the Fish Festival, there will be more from nearby Huron or Cedar Point for you to view if traveling on the water this weekend. All we need is some favorable lake conditions. On another quick note, Vermilion Road has re-opened for travel to and from your family fun marina, and just in time for the busy holiday.

As we all know the marina if full of boats that are also full of gasoline, our environment is not suited for any type of fireworks. So we ask that for the safety of all of our Captain’s, Crew, Guests and their property; that fireworks on Romp’s Property are strictly prohibited.

We wanted all of our Captains and Crew to be aware that Vermilion Road (Right next to Dairy Dock) is closed at the Railroad Tracks for road repair and resurfacing. This will effect all inbound folks who use this path from Route 90/2.

Instead we want you to know you can still come by Baumhart Rd, Sunnyside Rd, and Route 60 north to Liberty Ave.
