I left work early today to prepare for a test tomorrow but before I left the city I went downtown and took some pictures to share with you. One of the main reasons I wanted to go was to get some pictures of our new ice skating rink located smack downtown on the parking lot of the Farmer's Market.
I wasn't impressed. To me it looks like an above ground swimming pool that has been frozen. But, to be honest it is made to be put up and taken down in January and after all, it will probably help to attract shoppers to the downtown area.
What do you think? Oh, here is some flowers next to the skating rink that are still blooming. I love fresh flowers.
Here are some more of the downtown area.
This is a nice gazebo where horse-drawn carriage rides are offered during the summer.
The Market House Theatre
2nd street next to the Market House
This is 2nd street on the other side of the Market House. Note the cobblestone road. Those are original, and very bumpy. But I don't mind, I love it.
Here's a picture of the Ohio River. Dang that water looks blue.
This sits on the city side of the floodwall.
When was the last time you saw a red caboose?
I love our downtown area. So much history is there. We have an artist relocation project that has brought talented people from all over the country to our fair city. They are offered an old home for a cheap price in return for the promise to restore it to its former charm and beauty. That makes for an awesome neighborhood full of great homes, galleries and shops. It is really quite remarkable. You all should come and visit
