Ohio Renaissance Festival - Part 1 of 3

Good morning,

My Honey and I had a wonderful day at the Ohio Renaissance Festival with our grand kids Alex and Kate.  Today's images are of the mini road trip we took through Southern Ohio to get to the Festival a couple of weeks ago.  I'll have more images of the Festival tomorrow and the next day, too.   
 As we headed North on I-71 we were passed by some folks on motorcycles.  Grandson Alex was quite impressed by the huge American, Marine, and POW flags on the back of this motorcycle.

The cyclists above provided a teaching moment to tell the kids how important it is for motorcyclists to wear helmets...
 ...as their friends are doing.
 Here we are crossing the long and high bridge over the Little Miami State and National Scenic River.
 It' was an absolutely gorgeous day and we were happy to finally see some Fall colors.
 The motorcycles left the expressway shortly after we crossed the bridge.
 Alex was busy entertaining us with songs and games.  ;)
 Do you know the game, "Who can be quiet the longest?"

Kate was sitting directly behind me so I didn't get an image of her until we got out of the car at the Renaissance Festival.
 The fields were very, very brown after our ten week drought.
 As we neared our destination, we passed a picturesque country church.
 Finally we arrived at the Ohio Renaissance Festival.
 Big sister Kate is doing a great job of keeping an eye (and hand) on Alex.
There's the front door over there.  Tune in tomorrow for more of our Ohio Renaissance Festival adventure with the grandkids.

Very best,

The Jeremiah Morrow Bridge you went over is just 8 miles from me(maybe 4 miles by bird):)

Good morning,

Yes, this was a great outing. We all had great fun. The weather was perfect.

The Renaissance Festival is North of Kings Island and South of Columbus. It's at the same exit as the Caesar Creek Flea Market, just further down the road to the West.

Yes, we are pretty close, aren't we Wanda. :) It's such a small world.

Thank you, everyone, for stopping by.

Very best,
