South Bass Island
Put-in-Bay & Kelleys Island
July 12, 2011 - The two RV Gypsies and their grandson Alex went island hoping on the Jet Express, the fastest way to Put-in-Bay and Kelleys Island. It traveled at 35 knots (about 40 miles per hour).
The two RV Gypsies and their grandson boarded the Jet Express to Put-in-Bay which was half the fun of getting to Put-in-Bay and Kelleys Island. They got to relax while enjoying a narrated tour of the history of the island.

The first stop was Put-in-Bay (also known as PIB). Put-in-Bay is a village located on South Bass Island in Put-in-Bay Township, Ottawa County, Ohio. Many believe that the name originates from some early maps of South Bass Island that showed the harbor being named Pudding Bay, probably because it was shaped like a pudding sack.
