This weekend, Jay and I packed up our fambly and headed to Portsmouth Ohio. It’s located directly on the Ohio River. One side of the Ohio River is in Kentucky, and one side is in Ohio. We had an awesome weekend. The area was beautiful, and Mayo (the dog) enjoyed splashing around in the Ohio River. Below are some of my favorite pictures taken.
This is Jay and Mayo right at the bank of the Ohio River. This was a couple blocks away from our hotel.
This is the Ohio River. I couldn’t believe how HUGE it is! Saturday was a gorgeous day to wander around on the river.
This was taken at the Shawnee State Forest, about 20 minutes outside our hotel. Mayo looks like the star of the picture (even though Jay claims to be the star of EVERY picture)!
This was Bear Lake at Shawnee State Forest. Right at the edge of the lake, there is a drop off and mini man-made waterfall.
This is a side view of the drop off at Bear Lake.
This one cracks me up. I love how Mayo’s looking out from underneath Jay’s arm.
And here is Jay showing off his weapons. Brass nuckles, his Escrima stick, and I’m not even sure how many knives he was strapped up with. He was prepared in case one of those “Wrong Turn” situations happened!
This is Jay and Mayo walking along the Ohio again. Everyone and everything was coated with muddy sand by the time we got back to the car.
Oh, yeah. And THIS was the view from our hotel. It’s a little pixilated-looking because the picture was taken through a screen. You get the idea, though.
