What do you do when the day you picked for your annual day trip to Put-in-Bay turns out to be virtually nonstop rainy? You go anyway!

Another stop was the Lake Erie Islands Nature & Wildlife Center where animal specimens from around the country provide lessons about their place in their ecosystems and an outdoor pond offered a place of contemplation between showers. And the Chocolate Museum was open for business, with its display of vintage candy boxes and tins, its continual screening of the famous I Love Lucy chocolate-wrapping assembly line episode, and its large selection of chocolates and ice creams for sale.
