Taking Route 22 east out of Lancaster,Ohio one passes one of the remaining outdoor theaters The Skyview drive in theater


As a youth I spent many enjoyable evenings at the SKYVIEW but I don’t remember watching the movies. Next take a right on route 37 then a right on Lake Rd. and you may want to stop at Berne Station for some “refreshment”

100_2769 “In 1907, Bremen, Ohio, was considered Oil City”


After the Oil boom of the 1920’s many of Bremen’s citizens returned to agriculture


Well we are almost there but a must stop is PUMPKIN VINE GOLF COURSE 



Finally, I get to Bremen,Ohio but after 18 holes of golf I’m getting pretty tired. So I will have to finish this post at a later date. Some refreshment first:

100_2778  Ms. Wolfe served a foot long hot dog and soft drink for $3.00 (Not Bad)


Make sure to stop by SkyWatchFriday to see some beautiful skies.

Oh, yes, what a fun look back! And beautiful skies to go with it!!

I have thought of renting out space on the deck because we do have a terrific view, but I'm afraid the dogs would get jealous!

Have a great weekend!

We have one outdoor movie theater left in our area. It might be the only one in the state. I haven't been to it in about 15 years. I just drove past it a couple of days ago and was missing it.

Joe: That was a fun trip to Bremen with some neat skies. Can't wait to see the rest of the travels through amish country.

I have never been to a drive in movie, there weren't any in New Zealand where I grew up. Thank you for some wonderful photos.

Though there aren't any drive-ins where I live now, I remember seeing "The Singing Nun" at one when I was a child, great memories. You take beautiful pictures. Thanks for stopping by my blog to see my sky picture (actually my moon picture).
Have a good day.

Wonderful skies and a nice trip through your city and area ! Very creative way to show this.

I've got a couple of good drive-in stories, too. :-) Too bad most of them have disappeared from the landscape.

Great post. Have a wonderful weekend.

I remember going to the drive-in. My city doesn't have them any more and I haven't seen an oil well for a long time. Good thing there are still golf courses. Beautiful sky pictures!
