June 21, 2010---Drove to Paducah, KY to shop and have lunch at the CC Cohen restaurant. The building has been featured on
TV as one of the most haunted places in the United States.

After lunch two tourists were spotted traveling at different rates down the street. The pace was due to the heat, very HOT day in Paducah.

There is lots of history in this area where the Tennesse River flows into the Ohio River.

The flood wall is very nicely painted depicting the establishment and growth of Paducah.

River Heritage Museum is just across the street from the wall. It was time well spent visiting this site. In some of the pictures the Ohio River can be seen past the wall.

When you enlarge the picture of the high water markings it can readily be seen why the flood wall is so important to help protect the city. This building is two blocks up from the river. Markings show: 1884 @54.2 ft,
1913 @54.3 ft, 1937 @ 60.8 ft. The year of 1937 is considered the 500 year flood.

June 20th was Father's Day. We enjoyed a nice brunch at the Yacht Club restaurant at Green Turtle Bay.
