This event on Lake Erie in the NE corner of Ohio looks interesting;

That's odd, I just copied & pasted.

Anyway just type in 'd day ohio' into Google & follow it that way

It's 3 hours from me in Columbus, but it's one of those 'Educational' outings that as a Dad, I like to force take the family to  :rolleyes:.

They are giving rides in the Landing craft apparently ! That sounds like a blast !  :evil:

Then follow the outing up with the 'Dunkirk' movie. It's my birthday month so I try to get away with as much as I can .

I was going to recommend the Beef & Beer diner up on the hill overlooking the Conneaut exit on I-90, but we just came by there & saw that they are closed..... pity - good grub there..... 

A lot of folks around like the White Turkey Drive-In on Rt. 20 near there.....

I spent my US Navy years aboard APA class ships.  We carried 26 of those square-bowed boats (LCVP and LCM's) on board.  Our mission was to land Marines/Army personnel on a beach with some of their smaller support equipment.  You get 30 or so Marines in the well-deck of those "P-boats", with their combat packs on their backs, the bow of the boat can get pretty low in the water.  If the sea is a little rough, it's possible to take on a fair bit of water.
