“What flatterers say, try to make true.” ~ German proverb
After a day of adventuring, we found our way to Maysville. There, we came across a great restaurant situated beside the railroad tracks and the river. The restaurant sits beside the Amtrak station that isn’t actually open anymore which is pretty sad. The tracks, the station, and the restaurant are on the outside of the flood wall like sacrificial lambs. The river has been rising from all the rains upstream since we got here. I don’t expect it will raise above the tracks, but it’s happened more than once, and I just can’t imagine what it must be like to have a home or business that’s a sitting duck for floods. Disasters aside, we’ve spent a lot of time beside the river today and there’s just nothing more soothing than flowing water. What a beautiful day we’ve had.
