Yesterday, my friend Dee and I went exploring in Clifton, an area of Cincinnati next to the University of Cincinnati. I haven’t been there in five years and enjoyed walking around, taking photos, and having a bite to eat!
Here’s some of the architecture…
We stopped in a wonderful wine shop called “Ludlow Wines” and here’s a photo of Mike — the extremely hospitable owner! He loves his business and is expanding into a larger building down the street. We had a tasting of four wines for $5.00.
Next, we went through some of the shops that lined Ludlow Avenue. I have so much fun just looking at things with an eye for photography. It keeps me busy and an added plus…I don’t spend money!
This is an African shop owner and some of his wares…I remember going in here and buying a ring back in 2006.
We went for a short walk through Burnett Woods. Dee was going to go for a hike with the Tri-State Hiking Club through Meetup.com, but she knew I needed some company, so she came with me. I’m thankful I have good friends like Dee!
We filled our tummies at Sitwells. I had a Gouda and Guacamole Sandwich. Our waitress was cool…she had red-eye shadow on and a few piercings. I love when people feel free to express themselves through fashion/makeup/body art. She was very pleasant and sweet also!
This picture was in Sitwells…when you look at the lady from one angle, she looks like this…
and from another angle like this….
No matter where we live, there is beauty and interesting people…so let’s get out and explore our own backyards!
