Sept. 23, 2010---Ron Friend got up early to bid us farewell. He went out to the point to take pictures as we left the marina.

Beautiful morning as we pulled away from the fuel dock.

Making way on the Ohio River.

Another view leaving Manhatten Harbor marina located in Dayton, KY. Thanks to Ron for these photos.

About two miles from the marina is a view of downtown Cincinnati, Ohio.

Great American Ball Park. Home of the "Reds".

Paul Brown Stadium just a short way down river from the baseball park is the home of the "Bengals".

Thought this was a little unique. Fed Ex at river mile 477.6 crossing on the Anderson Ferry from KY to OH.

Made a short stop at Aurora Landing at Aurora, Indiana, mile 497.

Had lunch at the Acapulco Restaurant.

Caught a window shopper in action. Look farther and see Keith moving briskly toward the camera with Maryann trailing behind.

Walked around town looking at the many neat pictures painted on the buildings. The town is mostly in an area about six blocks long parallel to the river and extending back about four blocks.

Continued down the river to Rising Sun, Indiana. Tied up at the courtesy dock for the night.

Huge welcome sign painted on the wall just above the dock.

Grand Victoria Casino is about a mile back up river from the dock.

Keith found Maryann sitting in a large chair. Taking a break on their walk back from the casino.

Sure we went to the casino! Left only a few dollars for Indiana, but had a fine dinner at the buffet. From the fourth level of the casino the Dream Manor can just be seen along with a few smaller boats at the courtesy dock.

Stores in Rising Sun have fall decorations nicely displayed.

Video below was taken just down river from the mouth of the Great Miami River and I-275 bridge. The border between Ohio and Indiana is between the bridge and the river. This is another point where there are three states, as Kentucky lays from the middle of the Ohio River to the south. Traveling in the middle of the river we were surely in all three states at the same time!

Great Post. Thanks for the cudos on my pictures. The video was good even with the wind.
