Very nice trip all in all. On Friday night we went to the movies and saw Secretariat. My husband really wanted to see it. It was a very good movie.
Cincinnati needs to invest in two things. Street signs and Street lights! Would have made a few trips easier. Our hotel was okay. It was in a good place, and it was next to a skyline chili so I now understand why they’re famous. So good! I have found the vegetarian chili recipe online and will try it. There was also unfortunately a very busy train track right down the street. It was so loud. All night. It wasn’t the train engine but that damn train whistle. Over and over and over again!
The weather for wandering around weird cities was gorgeous.
I loved the way the zoo was layed out. So many gardens and water features and lush areas.
As is our unintentional habit we picked an event filled weekend to explore this new zoo. This weekend they were having their Pumpkin Path for the kids. We were surrounded by hordes of costumed kids tweeking on sugar. The bears also got a more healthful treat of pumpkins.
Cincinnati is really very hilly. I like this house up on the hill.
Cut a little closer.
I wish we had not been tearing down a street filled with curves so I could get better pics of these houses. They were marvelous. I saw so many three and four story houses that were so very narrow! It was unexpected in this part of the country.
The stadium of course.
They have a long mural running down their waterfront.
I liked the bridge so here are a couple of more pics. We’re standing on the Kentucky side of the bridge and that’s Cincinnati Ohio across the water.
This bridge made me laugh. It’s very old and ugly and has deep metal beams on the top. You can’t see the highway signs until you are right on them. Hilarity did not ensue.
