Wednesday, August 23
The grounds outside Creation Museum are beautiful – especially on a sunny, warm, late summer day.
The lighting on this flower was a bit shaded, but I like that the shot captured a bee.
In this photo you can see part of the zipline challenge course.
The petting zoo is in the middle of the walk through the gardens.
Wallabies are animals that look like God used a few leftovers when making them. 🙂
A cow looks pretty ordinary to me.
After leaving the petting zoo we were in the next section of gardens.
I like swinging bridges.
Across the lake from the museum
The bridge was closed for repair, so we had to go back through the petting zoo.
This time the camel was out – checking on the people.
I think he/she is the one used for camel rides.
What an interesting animal.
Getting a scent on me.
I wonder what it is thinking?
I’m not sure what it means when they hold their heads up extremely high.
Checking the area for grass and grain.
Look at those feet.
Cerwin took a picture of us – the camel and me – with his cell phone.
Leaving the petting zoo
Pretty berries that I did not notice on the first walk through the gardens.
Leaving the museum
Cerwin told me to choose a restaurant on our GPS. The first one that came up was Riverwatch. It sounded interesting so we followed the directions to Lawrenceburg, Indiana. I think it was about three or four miles from the museum.
Loved the uniqueness of this location on the Indiana side of the Ohio River.
Our table was on the left in the open area of the restaurant.
The view above us.
The view behind me.
The view to my left. There were also restaurant tables on the dock to the right.
We enjoyed watching boats go by. This one docked behind us and the people came into the restaurant to eat.
The ducks were hoping for restaurant crumbs.
Cerwin’s hamburger That is an onion ring between the bacon and cheese.
I chose a small entrée (appetizer) so I could enjoy a piece of key lime pie.
A tug and barge came by as we were enjoying dessert.
Leaving a most delightful atmosphere behind us.
It was difficult to imagine that the river got this high.
The blue tag – high water mark – is that blue plaque on the upper right. The river below is where we had supper.
Our motel – on the outskirts of Lawrenceburg – was a welcome place at the end of a full day.
Our next day visit was the Ark Encounter.
Come back to see the pictures from that visit.
