It feels like...
the season is changing. I don't mind it but it can be a bit of a shock.
It is August so this happens.
Isn't the view in the photo just beautiful?
A long, European garden setting.
The French inspired building is elegant and perfect in this setting.
Climbing to the top for a sweeping look towards the city.
This is Ault Park, or just a snippet view. It was taken in the fall.
I need to go back down there. I have been meaning to do this all summer.
It is a beautiful, large park that is very calming - and yet you can put a little effort into it and hike the trails. There is no shortage of hills in Cincinnati!

Just one more...
Near Ault Park is a very interesting place called the 'Rookwood.'
It was originally the very place where Rookwood pottery was made.
As a place to eat now, it is interesting because of the history of the company and the fact that you can actually go into one of the dome-shaped kilns and eat! They seat about 8-10 people. These kilns were huge. And the food is pretty good too - plus there are nice views of the Ohio River and the city of Cincinnati as well. I like the two rooks perched there on the post. A bit farther off there are two more...this is just a nice place to visit.


  1. I like the old looking house, a great photo indeed and the park also looks very nice. Reminds me of course of Europe. Vive la France. Or even better, Long Live England.

  2. I love the pictures! Ault park is a hidden gem. If I could only afford to buy a house in that area! The Rookwood is so amazing. It is one of my top 5 restaurants. We need to go back so very soon. I always seem to go when it's cold! It has great food and such a beautiful scene to gaze upon. I wish I could just drive up there somedays take a blanket and just listen to some good music. That would be a great moment! Great pics mom! Ly

  3. You could afford it!! I love Hyde Park an def East Wallnut Hills!!!!!


Let me know what you think!
