Bucket List Photo Challenge: Day 209.

Day 209 of my Bucket List Photo Challenge!

IMG_8850

I think most people, when thinking about Put-in-Bay, an island in the western basin of Lake Erie, immediately think of wine, drunks and golf carts.

During this particular summer, though, folks are thinking about history. In fact, everywhere you travel around the island, you will see flags and other signage that screams, “Don’t give up the ship!”

200 years ago, in the Battle of Lake Erie, Oliver Hazard Perry flew this slogan on his battle flag. Rightfully so, the island community is celebrating history in 2013. Take a moment during your visit to the island and visit Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial. Not only for the view, but so you can imagine yourself sailing with Commodore Perry on the USS Lawrence.

Let’s call this photo GOLF and knock that word off the list!

  1. The curtains that hung in the kitchen of my parents house carried this slogan, which was ironic seeing that my parents did give up the ship and divorced when I was 13. Thank you for giving me a much better reason to remember and embrace this slogan!
