Riding the Duck   Leave a comment

While my mom was in town, we thought it would be fun to take her on a cruise in the ohio river, in a Duck! These amphibious vehicles were designed in World War II, but now operate tours in many cities, including Newport.

My daughter was quite excited.

Once in the water, we got a great view of the Roebling Suspension Bridge.

I like the riverboat passing by.

We got an interesting view of the Riverboat Monument.

One thing we got to see were these boxes behind Great American Ballpark. This is where they launch post-game fireworks–the boxes are the fireworks.

We had a great time riding the duck.
