I honestly didn’t know much about Marietta, Ohio prior to my visit, but I discovered that the area has a lot to offer visitors. Marietta is positioned along the Ohio River which provides lots of opportunities for outdoor adventure.
Jane’s Saddlebag is a local destination that has been on my list for a while to check out. My boys and I finally made it there during a free farm tour event that allowed visitors to learn more about each of the farms in the area.
There are some situations that you have to take advantage of in that moment, otherwise you could miss out on them forever.
How many times do we see something and think that we will get back to it only to discover that we forgot about it or we no longer have time to do it or that the moment is no longer there.
I was faced with one of those moments on my way to Sandusky, Ohio. I was driving across the bridge from Northern Kentucky into Cincinnati, Ohio and I noticed how incredible the Ohio River looked frozen over. I was on my way out of town and I knew that there was a good chance that this scene would not be waiting for me when I returned so I decided to quickly deviate my route and take a few minutes to get a few shots of this incredible wonder.
I grew up in the area and this is not a scene that I can recall many times in my lifetime.
I still arrived at my destination on time….but first I had to stop for one more frozen view. This time it was to see 98% frozen Lake Erie in the backyard of Sawmill Creek Resort.
Hope you get to take a little time to enjoy the view where you are.
I’ve been wanting to check out the Newport Ducks Tours for quite a while. My husband and I went on one several years ago in the Atlanta area and we knew that our boys would love it. We enjoy learning about other cities but also like to take advantage of tours in our own backyard.
My husband and I recently enjoyed a wine tasting cruise on the BB Riverboats.
