A Beautiful Day....

What a beautiful day to get outside and play....After a week featuring cancelled schools, traffic snarls and cold, bitter, snowy conditions, today has literally been a breath of fresh spring air. We hope folks are getting outside to walk the dog, paddle a river or lake or otherwise take advantage of the great weather. The Ohio River is looking on the high side (at almost 34') but falling soon. We are so ready for many paddling trips on the Ohio and its tributaries this summer.

Tonight the plan is to visit the friendly Village of New Richmond to enjoy music and food. There always seems to be action in the Village these days on weekends. We absolutely loved the new stage that was constructed at the Green Kayak Market & Eatery. Very cool! We really hope this little Village can turn it around and become the much-needed nearby summer destination locale for the region. We will stop by the in-progress exclusive kayak ramp and see if any progress is being made and then enjoy a glass of local wine (probably Harmony Hill) at the Kayak while listening to whomever is playing on what they call "The Old Lodge Stage." (Hopefully that giant white truck and tractor aren't still  clogging up the entrance to the ramp). We will report back....'til then, "Get Out and Play!"
