Germantown, Ohio

I was about to head to Kentucky for the weekend when Billie texted and said to meet her in Germantown instead.  I knew the place.  We had once stayed at a wonderful little bed and breakfast called The Guest Quarters of Historic Germantown, Ohio.  It’s pretty unassuming from the outside, but the inside is like a little respite from the world and Mo, the owner and breakfast chef extraordinaire, is fantastic.  I highly recommend a visit, but this isn’t really about the bed and breakfast.  It’s about the surrounding sites and natural beauty.  I visited Germantown Metropark, Twin Creek Metropark, and explored the area in general.  So, to get on with it, here are some of the pics from our adventure.

Looking at the back of The Guest Quarters of Historic Germantown, Ohio on the left.  It’s a cozy little place with a tiny formal garden outside the back door.

Looking off the dam at Germantown Metropark.  It’s high and a little intimidating with no rails.  I took this photo over a very low concrete wall.
