I can scratch off another experience from my bucket list…a Segway tour! It was fun…a bit dangerous…and we had a beautiful day for it. I took my son, whom I infrequently do anything with and he loved it. There were six people on the tour of Eden Park in Cincinnati. After a 20 minute lesson…we were off. Up and down hills…along skinny sidewalks with steep drop offs…and even off-road.
I had to laugh watching the tour guide give Justin his lesson…she was about 5’4″ and in comparison to his 6’9″ frame…it was quite comical!
Unfortunately, a couple in their late 50’s or early 60’s fell off of their Segway a number of times. Luckily only their pride was injured. They are quite tricky – when you step on or off…they sense your presence and react by moving.
The mighty “Ohio River” was sparkling in the sunlight!
“Twin Lakes” were very tranquil. I haven’t been to Eden Park in many years.
We sat outside in Mt. Adams for a late lunch afterwards and went shopping afterwards. It was a great day. I’m blessed to have a wonderful son to spend time with!
Hope your day was great too!!

I wouldn’t do the ziplining but this looks fun!
This was a great post. I’ve always wanted to try a segway. Now I know I have to do it! Great shots, too!
