When I returned to Hotel Kilbourne from Mr Smith’s Coffeehouse, Bhavna was still asleep. She’s generally not an early riser. She always complains about missing the sunrise, and I always explain that in most parts of the world, the sun rises before 10 AM. I sat on the edge of the bed, eating my bacon, egg and cheese croissant sandwich, drinking coffee and exploring Sandusky via Google Maps. The food truck we had seen the night before at the Jackson…

Water Street, Sandusky

Water Street, Sandusky, Ohio

Before returning to the Kilbourne Hotel, I explored East Water Street starting at Columbus Avenue and stopping at Wayne Street, after which I turned around and walked back to the Kilbourne Hotel.

The stairs that enter the plaza at the intersection of Water Street and Columbus Avenues leads past the water fountain, to Shoreline…

Sandusky Wine Merchant

Sandusky Wine Merchant

After finishing our cocktails at the Moseley's Rooftop Bar, we exited onto Water Street to explore the downtown. The streets were bare compared to Princeton, yet the air felt vibrant and alive. The Sandusky Wine Merchant is next door to our hotel, tacoria, and rooftop bar. The Sandusky Wine Merchant offers wines from Australia, Chile, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, New Zealand and Spain but also has a good selection of local wines. I started talking to the store's charismatic owner,…
