Sundays In My City: Louisville Waterfront

Not my city... but a city we enjoyed visiting!  These are a small part of our getaway last weekend to Louisville, KY.

We hung out by the waterfront.  Fantastic parks and walking paths.  Had a great time on a rented 4 wheel bicycle surrey.  Saw a coal barge going down the river- I have memories of my own growing up and my dad's connections to coal mining and how he used to always point out the barges hauling coal to me.  We easily could have spent most of the day on the waterfront with the assortment of playgrounds and the giant splash park!










Plus, spotting Santa on the off season is always a bonus.  Who knew he was a fan of Joe's Crab Shack?



I also spied an exercise group- 4 women and 1 leader doing a variety of exercises along the riverfront.  We spotted lots of cyclists and runners and walkers, too.



But what I really loved was catching someone doing cartwheels!

Santa! He's all over the place. I've spotted him in Asheville and in New Orleans.

I like the Jeff/Zach Marvel hero shirts...

Nice pictures. I've been there a few times and driven over the I-65 bridge (what a mess of ramps on the KY side). I was wondering if that old RR bridge is accessible by foot or bike. Last time through there it looked like it was. There are no trains on it for sure.

1) Gorgeous waterfront

2) We SAW that Santa one summer in Hayward - - - well he SURE looked like that anyway. He actually let people call him Santa 'cause he knew he looked the part. Hmmmmm wonder if it WAS the same guy?

3) You could not PAY me enough money to wiggle and jiggle my fat self out in a public park in front of God and people and everybody like that!!!!!
