Oktoberfest

Yesterday, Rob and I ventured down to the local Oktoberfest at MainStrasse.  The weather was so incredibly hot we didn’t stick around after we got our bierwurst with sauerkraut and our mandatory cream puff.  Hopefully when Cincinnati has their Oktoberfest in a couple of weeks, the weather will be a little cooler!   🙂

This is the clock tower in the middle of the park, and I’m absolutely in love with it.   Hope y’all had a great weekend!

Day 318 – Christ Church Cathedral

It’s still raining here in the N KY.  As of this morning, we’ve gotten 11.32 inches of rain since April 1.  The next dry day they are forecasting is Friday.  Hoping that does not change…I miss my old friend sunshine.

Went back to the archives today and found this photo of the steeple at Christ Church Cathedral in downtown Cincinnati.  Photo was taken on March 19, 2011 and is SOOC.


Day 170 – Great Combination

I love finding steeples that are also clock towers.  Two of my favorite things rolled into one awesome package.  🙂


Day 147 – Double Duty

Rob took the day off today, so we ventured to Gordo’s Pub and Grill for a burger and what turned out to be the most delicious macaroni and cheese I think I have ever tasted.  And I must say, I make some pretty kick ass mac and cheese myself.  But this was better.  And the burger was delicious too.

On the way back from Gordo’s, Rob drove through downtown Cincinnati so I could get some photos.  We came across this church steeple which also doubled as a clock tower, so it was a total win/win in my book.


Day 115 – Two Towers

Y’all know I love me some towers, especially clock towers.  And this one is a beauty!  Paired with the awesome steeple, both standing tall against the brilliant blue sky, what’s not to love?

This was taken in downtown Maysville, KY.


Day 89 – Clock Tower Take Two

If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I love me some clock towers.  If not, you do now.  🙂

This bit of awesomeness is located somewhere between Xenia and Jamestown, OH…don’t remember exactly.  We did a lot of driving around that day!   I do find it interesting that the clocks do not show the same time.  🙂


Day 15 – Clock Tower

I absolutely love clock towers.  I have ever since I was a little girl and first saw the one on the Amtrak building in Richmond, Virginia.  (Thanks Rob, for helping me locate it again after all those years!)

This is the clock tower in the Main Strasse Village in Covington, KY.  Using Picasa, I played around with the saturation and I must say, I really like the results much better than the original.  I have posted both, first the saturated one, and then the original.
