July 23, 2010---On the move again. About one mile upriver from the marina is the town of Aurora, Indiana. Noticed a landing that might be fun to try on the return trip.

Main street is within walking distance of the landing. Appears to be another neat town that needs to be explored.

Landing is just up from main street.

Several planes passed over as they descended into Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.

Anderson Ferry crossed the Ohio River in front of us at mile 478.

Cincinnati skyline looms ahead. Ohio has been on the port side since we crossed mile 491 where the Great Miami River flows into the Ohio River.

This double decker bridge is where I-75 crosses between Kentucky and Ohio.

Paul Brown Stadium, home of the Cincinnati Bengals. Stadium covers 22 acres, is 157 feet high and seats 65,535.

Great American Ball Park serves as the home of the Cincinnati Reds, baseballs first professional franchise.

Murals on the wall of this large complex.

Another view of the Cincinnati skyline.

Hooters has a courtesy dock at mile 469.7

Hooters is located in Newport, Kentucky.

Tied up at Hooters for lunch. Cincinnati in the background on the other side of the river.

Next stop is Manhattan Harbour marina located on the Kentucky side of the Ohio in Dayton, KY.
Today's travel took 4.7 hours to cover 31.5 miles.

Gotta love Hooters having a dock! I live in St Louis and am really frustrated by the lack of any kind of city dock for pleasure craft.

Have you guys ever decided on your preferred prop? The 20x27? I assume now you're back to the Hy Torq 20x26 but was wondering what happened to the 20x22s you liked so much that let you get your rpms up.

Anyway, safe travels McGees! I love your blog and read every update.
