Mariemont Concourse

 Well the calendar says Spring is here but I,
Sweet William The Scot, don't believe the calendar.
So I told Lee lets look at some of the pictures from last summer and put them up today.
These pictures were taken last August.
I showed you my Graeter's Ice Cream Parlor in Mariemont in 2012.
Well sometimes in the summer we pack a lunch and go over to a bluff in Mariemont that overlooks the Little Miami River just before it joins the Ohio River.
The road along this bluff is called Miami Bluff.
Towards the eastern end of the bluff is located what is known as the Mariemont Concourse.
 It is a park that contains a stone trellis overlooking the Little Miami River and the view beyond with built-in benches where one can sit. 
There is also a beautiful landscaped garden.
The hill in the distance is the one I live on.
A storm was moving in so the view was not great.
Okie Dokie if we walk a couple of blocks to the right I know we are going for Ice Cream and if we go a couple of blocks to the left we are going to here a Carillon Concert.
 The carillonneur performs on a keyboard connected to 49 bells inside the Bell Tower.
I will show you that at another time.
I always hope we will walk to the right.
                      Thanks for being a friend                         
       Traveling down the road and back again              
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine.     
Signing Off
 Sweet William The Scot   


  1. Hmmmm...Don't ya miss summer? It'll be back soon! Wish I was there with you!

    Hap-Pee Monday!

  2. Oh Sweet William it is so nice to see flowers and green leaves. It just warms my little heart and mom keeps mooning over the pictures. Glad you posted past summer time fun as I had not found you at that time.
    Your furfriend, Bentley

    1. Oh Bentley you have missed a lot of my city that I have posted about. Like Kyla wrote in my profile "By day, I work as a tour guide for the world, showing the visitors greater Cincinnati, Ohio." Those are the post I like the best. Have a great week Bentley and Gailen.

  3. Nice to remember nicer weather and we so hope warmer times are just round the corner SW. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Ring-ding-ding-a-doo...Sir William, how I wish I were you you...when you travel to the right...for some ice cream delight! BOL I always forget there is a Miami in Ohio...I just know about the Miami in Florida. Totally different, I am sure. I do hope the weather warms up soon for you. You and Lee deserve to be able to walk about and show us more of your great city!
    Your Cairn bestie,

  5. Do they have squirrel flavor sundaes with kitty bon-bons on top?

    1. Oh Kyla besides all their wonderful flavors they have seasonal flavors and I just love the Pumpkin. Taste like pumpkin straight from the field.

  25. Hello my friend!! How have you been?!

  26. I was totally having a sad walk down memory lane as I was mowing my lawn. I took a break and I just read your comment about Half Pence. A year ago today I knew my Piper wouldn't recover from what seemed to be a stroke. She crossed the bridge on April 2, as well. What a sad anniversary we share :-(

  27. We think the walk for ice cream sounds pawsome!!
