Summer Sunday in Cincinnati


Since I took the summer off I have quite a few photos I haven’t shared on the blog. These are from a lovely summer Sunday I spent in Cincinnati, my home town, with my parents. Most are from the riverfront park. There are some amazing multi-person swings that sit on a ridge ¬†overlooking the river, but they were very busy. Someday I’ll go back in the middle of the winter so I can sit on one!

BTW–There was a mix-up over on the Familiar Legacy blog, so I won’t be there today, as I thought. But there is a fun new post by another Trouble author!


Looking back at the city.


What a beautiful spot for a wedding.


Trolley time.


Steps up to the bridge. It was too hot to walk across and back.




Such a cute maze.




My first trip on a boat was on the Ohio when I was 5. It was terrifying.


Riverboat from Nashville.


Fancy irises?


Such a view.


Honeybee feast.


I always forget the name of this bridge.


Party boat.

    Lovely photos of states I’ve never visited. I adore boats, Laura.

      Ohio has a little bit of everything. Except ocean, desert, and mountains. Hills, but no mountains. I’ve always wished I liked boats more. They’re great in theory, but I dislike being surrounded by water. Have you ever had a boat?

        I have never owned a boat, but it was my husband’s dream—to have a sail boat and just take off in it. Many of my friends had boats ( all types), and I spent week ends on cabin cruisers and traveled ion the Atlantic Coast. It can be lovely when weather and undertows are cooperative. The rivers are a bit tricky, however, there are currents that I never expected. Lakes are heavenly.

  2. Laura, loved your photo display. Cincinnati is a lovely place. I’ll put it on my bucket list of places I plan to tour in the U. S. And I’ll look forward to your Familiar Legacy blog.

      Yes, you must see Cincinnati. I enjoyed your pics from your recent cross-country trip!

      I had no idea. Glad you liked them. It’s a very photogenic city, and so much interesting architecture.
