Ohio River at Maysville, Kentucky
This is the Simon Kenton Memorial Bridge across the Ohio River at Maysville, Kentucky, as seen from Aberdeen, Ohio.
Maysville, Kentucky, is home to Rosemary Clooney, aunt to the famous George, and Nick, father to the famous George.
We chatted with some very nice people here who said the Mississippi Queen had just left a couple of hours earlier after over-nighting at the Port of Maysville. Back in 1989 I took my Dad on a Delta Queen cruise and we also over-nighted here in Maysville. Back then I got a kick out of a port tour that was sold on the ship for a walking tour of Maysville. My Dad and I took our own walking tour and completed it in about 20 minutes.
We were happy to see Maysville from the Ohio side this time.
All the best,
