Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, to Cincinnati, Ohio

Good morning,

Today we are making the last leg of our journey home to Ohio from Port Canaveral, Florida.

We are on the road just North of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
It wasn't long before we were in the Bluegrass State.
The weather was beautiful here.  The ice and snow were gone.
The green of Spring was just beginning to creep into the valley below.
 Of course, Kentucky is home to beautiful horse farms...
 ...the cows love bluegrass, too.
 This is tobacco bundled to go to auction.  I haven't seen this for years.
 Here near Lexington is the first road sign listing our destination:  Cincinnati.  :))
Beautiful farms and barns are everywhere.
 This is part of the Kentucky Horse Park.  If you haven't been there, be sure to add it to your bucket list.
 A tobacco drying barn...
 ...and just a few miles later we come over the hill where we can see Cincinnati on the other side of the Ohio River.
 To our right is the Covington, Kentucky, clock tower.
 Now across the river in Ohio, we will pass downtown Cincinnati...
 ...past the gazebo...
 ...Krohn Conservatory...
 ...the Eden Park Water Tower...
 ...under the Eden Park Bridge...
 ...and past Mirror Lake where we have taken so many pictures so many times.

The next stop was home, greeting dogs, emptying the car, starting the laundry....  ;)  There's just no place like home!

Our daughter arrived shortly after we did.  It is so good to be home.

I hope you've enjoyed our journey with us.

Very best,
Lois

...today was fantastic...a perfect day for you to come home (at least temperature-wise...near 60!). Loved seeing these return shots. I love Lexington...and once you hit it, not too much longer to get home (but sometimes that last stretch is the hardest!). You definitely have a very exciting life with lots of wonderful travels...you're so lucky!! :-)

Nice views of Cinci! Always been a bit prejudiced - Ohio State and all! But I might try a visit someday. Its close enough.

Good morning,

Yes, being home is wonderful. We have dived right in to all of the home activities. The transition is very fast when we come and go. :)

Thank you so much for stopping by and all your good wishes.

Very best,
Lois
