Whiskey Island and Old Coast Guard Station

I've read about Cleveland's Whiskey Island and the development of Wendy's Park many times and finally decided to go and see what it was all about. Laura and I parked near the Whiskey Island Marina and watched some of the boating activity, then walked along the Lake Erie coast to Wendy Park, and finally to the old Cleveland Coast Guard Station. The views from Whiskey Island of downtown Cleveland are really cool and worth the trip itself.
The old Coast Guard Station(built in 1940 and abandoned in 1976) is photographic gold - a beautiful building and location that will hopefully be put to use for something eventually.
It was a a perfect day and a stroll on the beach was an awesome break from the 90 hour work weeks on the farm.
