Cincinnati Heights

Lauren and I had a little adventure the other day.  It was a bit challenging because Lauren does not like to spend time in the city.  The traffic, the heat and numerous other reasons surfaced when I proposed this jaunt but she humored me and off we went to visit the Carew Tower.   The shadows were amazing in the sunshine of Cincinnati however my camera didn't seem to pick up on them very well.

It wasn't difficult at all.  Street parking for two hours gave us ample time to walk the two blocks and travel to the observation deck.  

The views were stunning.  This is the second tallest building in Cincinnati. I have never seen this deck before and I even stayed at The Netherlands  30 years ago this summer.  How we missed this, I'll never know.

 We even had time on the parking meter to dine in one of the restaurants inside but  someone else even had a better idea

This couple was having a lovely picnic on the deck!  How romantic!  They allowed me to take a picture and I asked for a business card to send them the link to this blog.  It turns out he is a well known glass artist!  It's good I didn't know that at the time because I might've been babbling about how much I like art glass and asking for his autograph or something! You can see his beautiful work at www.DarrenGoodman.net it was quite exciting later when I realized I had crossed paths with someone whose work I admired so much!  It's not always we get to know that!

Our lunch was delicious though!  

We chose the deli in the building

And we were quite satisfied with the delicious  Asian noodles and chicken salad!  It was a fun afternoon spent with my granddaughter, Lauren.  I'm grateful for small things!
