Aug. 4, 2010---Anchored just below the Meldahl Lock and Dam on the Kentucky side of the Ohio River was a good spot. Some morning entertainment as we watched somebody stuck in a side by side ATV.
Downstream where we had spent two nights landed on the sand, some of the equipment onshore was loaded onto a barge with a crane.
Apparently the ATV was being used by the crew that we had seen laying rock along the bank on the river near the dam. A dozer was sent to pull the ATV out of the wet sand.
A closer view of the work barge.
Weighed anchor and went back downriver to New Richmond, Ohio. Docked the boat and started to walk toward town. Capt. Joe Vogel gave us a ride to the cafe. Found out he is the owner of The Landing Restaurant.
Inside the restaurant is a display case with some wonderful carvings to see. The carvings were done by Capt. Joe's grandfather.
Cardboard Boat Museum--may be the only one of its kind. This year the cardboard boat races will be held August 20th, 21st, and 22nd. The annual event draws about 20,000 spectators.
A lot of creativity goes into the construction of these boats.
One of the projects near the museum is restoration of the home of Dr. Rogers.
Carol was excited about the road runners she found at Mr Grim's. She will add these to her growing collection at home.
Bob Lees owns the Front Street Cafe.
Part of the crew seen near the cafe. should not be hungry, we just ate.
