The boat tour is a very romantic, and there are some on Lake Erie. So, we jumped into the car and hit the road. The place should be with the beach, port, and museum. Port Dover has all three. The town is a south point of Highway 6, which becomes Walker St. and ends straight on the beach. We found a parking spot on St. George street.
Port Dover is a resort town with a lot of places to stay. The wind was pretty strong, and all boat tours were canceled. A lot of people spent breezy time on the pier. Lake Erie is the shallowest one compare to other Great American Lakes, but it took lives of fishermen.
The museum is really good. It shows the history of the north shore of Lake Erie and the ways people survived the storms. This pretty lake swallowed over 2200 ships! The second flow of the building represents the ship from inside. I couldn’t resist the temptation to play Morse code on real telegraph device and pull the cords of steam whistles.
The museum also has a big room with everything for fishing and about fishing. But the life there is not only the fishing. Port Dover is a resort town with beautiful houses, cabins, churches and farmers market.
Nice town. Will go there again.
