Lawrenceburg

While visiting Cincinnati we decided to do a day trip to Indiana and maybe do a hike or something. Well, as we went there, with 95F temperatures we thought that any type of outdoor activity would be not the best way to spend the day. So we decided to stop for lunch at the first town, see what it has and then get back to air conditioned places in downtown Cincinnati.

Lawrenceburg is the town that we stopped for lunch and it appears that its main attraction is this big casino. As we turned off highway into the town, it seems like the road and all signs tried to get you into one of the parking garages of this casino. We had to really pay attention and make right turns to bypass all those traps and not end up at the casino. Obviously, as you can see we did walked from the downtown of Lawrenceburg to the casino. It was so hot and sunny outside and I wanted to take a few photos in Indiana, so we went to check it out. Lots of old people in casino, seems like it is what they do, go and give their money to the casino, probably not many leave it on the plus side.

We ate the restaurant down there on the right, called RiverWatch, seating on the open deck next to the river with some wind blowing, it was actually not that hot.

While eating lunch, this came through, carrying some kind of liquid, maybe oil or something else.
