The day before I got to Susannah's, I spent the afternoon at Smale's Riverfront Park in Cincinatti! It was the first time I had ridden a bicycle since the accident. I had a blast. The grounds were almost perfectly flat...a good re-entry to biking after a broken foot! It was a picture perfect day and the scenery was just a great! Cincinatti is but a bridge across the Ohio River away from Newport on the Levee...a retail entertainment center in Kentucky.

The bridge has a secure lane just for bike riders so I took advantage of the opportunity and off I went. There were many restaurants, an aquarium, a comedy club, bowling lanes, shopping, and a movie theater...and of course, great views!

The day after my visit with Susannah, I spent a couple days at Barkcamp State Park, also in Ohio. It spans over 1,000 acres and was turned into a fishing a game reserve in 1955. Belmont Lake and Barkcamp Creek run through it. There are hiking and equestrian trails, a beach and plenty of opportunity for pictures! It was very beautiful there and peaceful.
