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!
