Here are a few photos of my Oct. 1 Turner Coach day trip to Overlook Restaurant in Leavenworth, IN.
Our buffet lunch was delicious and the 20-mile panoramic vista of the Ohio River was awesome. I made the best photos I could on this overcast day.
I also got to visit old town Leavenworth on the banks of the Ohio.
Sometimes the craziest titles just fit!
Keeping with the circus theme in my previous post, I thought it was high time you also met Curly the Clown. (He too has been a draft post for more than a year.)
This post also doubles as last week’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgia post.
This sign is just rusting away alongside the Historic National Road (U.S. 40) in Seelyville, Indiana. I pass this iconic piece of Americana everyday on my way to work in Terre Haute.
When searching the Net to find out more about this once animated ice cream sign I found out that he is just like the original Dairy Queen sign. I’m not sure if the ice cream shop years ago in Seelyville purchased Curly the Clown from Dairy Queen, then painted their own business name on the sundae container … or maybe Circus Conies & Cones custom ordered the same sign as Dairy Queen from the same sign company.
Anywho … The original Dairy Queen version also waved and a bulb in the curl of the sundae would light up at night.
All photos taken while standing on top of the dam at Cecil M. Harden Lake, more commonly referred to as Raccoon Lake.
In case you can’t tell … that’s one of several buzzards that would circle overhead, then swoop down along the shoreline in search of food.

This beauty danced with the beasts of the woodland next to my house about a week ago. I’m not sure if it is a moth or a butterfly.
Photo of the Week series: Every Sunday in 2012 I will either share a photo from my archives or something new I just can’t wait to get feedback on for future art shows/exhibits.
Blogger participation: My hope is to receive enough input on each week’s photo to later post a Bloggers’ Choice of the Month and wrap up 2012 with a Bloggers’ Choice of the Year.
