Mushroom House and More

I didn't take many pictures on my Cincinnati hike. It was hot and I was using all my energy to walk. However, there were a lot of great older houses near the river.

I particularly liked this stately apartment building. The picture is horrible, with wires and cars, but I wasn't waiting around until I got a better shot. Notice the semi-enclosed court in front and the concrete pillars that contrast with the brick. I'm thinking classic 1930s.

I also really liked the eclectic stone work along the driveway for this home.

But the best was this place. It's become something of a tourist attraction and is known as the Mushroom House.

I have seen the mushroom house quite a few times. It is near my daughter and granddaughter's house. Since she adopted her new daughter Grandpa and Grandma are making regular trips to Cincinnati.

Those are some digs. Wonder what it would be like to live there?
