Date 99 - I'm On A Boat!

Date: Saturday, September 21, 2013
Type: Out On The Town, Double, Culture
Cost: $$
Planned By: Both

While living downtown we want to make the most of everything we have within walking distance. Also while living in Cleveland we like to utilize beautiful Lake Erie as much as possible. So for this double date we did both.

Michelle and Jim visited from Columbus for the weekend so we asked them to take do a lunch double date with us. This was no ordinary lunch date. We took a lunch cruise on the Goodtime III!
The day started out very gloomy. We had to walk in the rain down to the boat at the East 9th Street Pier. We got our tickets and boarded the boat. There was a buffet style lunch consisting of roast beef, chicken, potatoes, green beans and carrots, and a salad. This lunch wasn't that great. It filled me up but I was expecting something a bit nicer. For dessert we had brownies, that were actually pretty good!
During the cruise there was a narration as we sailed down the Cuyahoga River. It told us lots of interesting facts about the history of Cleveland as a port city. I mean they weren't that interesting, but I did learn a couple things. For the second part, we cruised around the harbor and got really nice views of the Cleveland skyline. As we headed back to the dock the sun came out! The better weather brightened everyone's mood for the end of the cruise.
All in all, it was nice to do once. I'm glad we went, but I probably wouldn't do it again. They do have dinner cruises, and dancing cruises that might be a bit more upbeat, but the lunch cruise wasn't that exciting.
