County Inn & South Sandusky South for Cedar Point

Back in early spring when the second nights free option at Club Carlson was disappearing we planned our travel out for 2015.  One of Husband’s choices was Cedar Point.  There are two Club Carlson hotels near Cedar Point.  One is 28,000 and the other is 38,000 points a night.  We went with the Sandusky South location at 28,000 points a night.

Our Sorrowful Mother Shrine Ohio

While at the Seneca Caverns we saw a sign showing the local tourist attractions.  One right around the block from the cavern was Our Sorrowful Mother.

We got a little turned around but eventually found the long driveway leading to the shrine.  (I should have written the address down.) There was one other car in the massive parking lot.  There is ample bus parking and signage for the shrine.

Seneca Caverns Bellevue Ohio Tour

We headed to Ohio for a weekend at Cedar Point not too long ago.  I had some Club Carlson points to burn up when they were in the process of taking away the second night free perk.  We made plans back in April to visit Cedar Point on a Saturday leaving Friday open for either driving or something touristy.  Some thing touristy that I cannot do at home is tour a cave.

I have vertigo issues that come and go so I figured if it came down to it I could read a book at the car while Husband and Daughter went into the cave.  We easily found the location on our GPS not far from the Ohio turnpike.  There were several cars in the parking lot next to the cemetery.  (If you are traveling with a trailer or motor home they do have ample easy parking for you.)  Bathrooms are clean port-a-johns next to the parking area.  And they have a cute cut out for a family picture outside.  They also offer the mine slouching for kids but we did not take the time.

Fair Trade Friday 1 Year Anniversary!!!!!!

Can you believe it has been a year since the first Fair Trade Friday box?  Neither can I!  They recently wrote on their Facebook page “A year ago we started with 82 members, which seemed overwhelming as we packed the boxes. This month, we mailed out packages to more than 850 members. Happy birthday to us!”

Crazy!!!!!  And amazing!  I love getting new items each month.  I love it that they have a waiting list so others are joining in.  And I love that we are helping other women and families!
