Lighthouse Agenda as of 27 June

Light House Trip Agenda (rev B - as of June 27, 11:00am)

Check all maps posted before you go.
Bring a flashlight, tripod, charged batteries, spare memory, rain gear for you and camera, beach shoes, etc.

My phone number is 440 527 1751. I probably won’t answer while driving, so leave a message. Note that I never have it turned on on normal days, so don’t call me on it after the trip.

Saturday – June 28 am

Whenever you feel like leaving – Head North to Amish country to find the items on the scavenger hunt. The idea is not to “race” up North in our usual hectic time-driven manner, but to follow country roads to see Ohio and the Amish lifestyle. Get a map and wander off the super highways. A prime consideration is to be very careful, Amish buggies travel on these roads at about 8-10 miles per hour. It’s a good idea to have one person to drive and one to look for photo opportunities. I have prepared a Photo Scavenger Hunt list for the trip on the last page of this document. You can post individual pictures or make a collage of the ones that best represent the trip. Use common sense when parking for pictures.

Noon – Lunch in an Amish restaurant, Berlin Farmstead Restaurant in Millersburg at 4657 township road 366
Berlin, Ohio 44610
GPS: 40.563876 -81.792748
Phone 330 893 4600

This place is about 2 hours from Dublin, if you don’t take a scenic route and stop for pictures

1:00 pm or so – Head North in the same manner as the first leg of the trip working on the Scavenger Hunt project. I hope to get my Amish pics during the morning and head right up to my hotel to check in and take a nap.

5:00 pm - Dinner at Pickle Bills in Grand River, Ohio at 101 River Street, Grand River, Ohio, 44045. Phone 1 800 352 6343. Be careful, apparently GPS navigation can lead you astray for some reason.

6:30 pm or so - Go to Headlands Beach and look for photo opportunities or go to Fairport for close ups of the Fairport Lighthouse and then go to *Headlands Beach.
The Dunes area at the East end of the beach is a nature preserve and they don’t want you to wander on the dunes outside of the paths. There are some rare protected plants there (Beach Peas) that you should not disturb

8:00 pm – On Headlands Beach, set up for sunset pictures of the West Breakwall lighthouse

9:30 pm – Go to the Dark Park (Optional)

Sunday, June 29
Optional go to Fairport Harbor for breakfast. Because many people get breakfast at their hotel, I made no reservations for breakfast. There is a restaurant across from the Fairport Harbor lighthouse that opens at 7:00 am.

8:00 am We will rally at the lighthouse in Fairport for the last time, then people can head out on other adventures or head back to the heart of Ohio. I am heading home via Pennsylvania to see family.

Head home via any route you choose. Remember that Amish Restaurants are closed on Sundays.

We will discuss area scenic spots such as Marblehead lighthouse, waterfalls, Clevelan Aquarium, Squire’s Castle, etc, at dinner and breakfast

* Use the extreme Eastern parking area at Headlands Beach. They close the other areas at dusk. (You can enter that area from the main entrance during the day, but it has an entrance/exit on the road just to the East of the park entrance for after dark use by fishermen. See the detail map I posted.

FYI - Headlands Beach is the Northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail
Scavenger Hunt for The Lighthouse Trip:

1. Amish Buggy
2. Amish Dress (remember, they do not want their faces in pictures)
3. Amish farm house
4. Amish Hat (remember, they do not want their faces in pictures)
5. Barn
6. Pretty beach stones
7. Bridge
8. Cow
9. Gull(s) They hover nicely by the water for in-flight shots
10. Horse
11. Horse drawn farm implement
12. Lighthouse, round
13. Lighthouse, square
14. Sand dune
15. Small town shop
16. Sunset
17. Water sport

The idea is not to just shoot a snapshot of the above, but to try to make an interesting picture that includes the item. You can capture several items in one picture.
