Here’s where we think you should stay!

Last Week At The Bay

Well, if you were not here last weekend, you missed a lot. If you were here, you would have great memories of your weekend. The music all over the island was the best it’s been all year. Then we had an awesome fireworks show over the water to cap off a great long weekend. My suggestion would be to call your favorite place to stay and reserve your room for 2024’s 4th of July weekend. Next year  the 4th is on a Thursday, so I am sure many people will take advantage and come up for all 3 days.

The Week Ahead At The Bay

It is hard to believe, but the days are getting shorter already. But you still have time for a summer visit to Put-in-Bay.
The big news is that Good Morning America will be doing their show live from Put-in-Bay Thursday, July 13th from 7am to 9am. So get up a little early and watch the broadcast before you go to work, or just record it and watch it when you get home. But it will be a must see. Our little island is going big time!
Other big news, a long time island performer, Bob Gatewood, has put together a recording of all of your favorite songs including the Island song Friends of the Bay. You can order it on iTunes or you can go to and order the CD on July 14th.

Downtown Dave’s Thought(s) For The Week

The thoughts of the week:

This is a list of things that I have learned in my life.

That when you are in love, it shows.
That when a child falls asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.
That being kind is more important than being right.
That no matter how serious your life requires you to be, everyone needs a friend to act goofy with.
That life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end the faster it goes.
That money doesn’t buy you class.
That sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand.
That under everyone’s hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved.
That when you plan to get even with someone, you are only letting that person to continue to hurt you.
That the easiest way for me to grow as a person is to surround myself with people who are smarter than I am.
That no one is perfect until you fall in love with them.
That life is tough but I AM TOUGHER.
That a smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.
That one should keep your words soft and tender because you might have to eat them tomorrow.
Last one Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain. They think that they will be happy when they get there. But the real happiness and growth occurs when you are climbing the mountain.

Have a great week everybody and we will see you at Put-in-Bay this weekend! One more note please check out the live cams and make them a favorite on your computer. The cams will bring back old memories from your trips to Put-in-Bay and it will make you come back for more.
