Devou Park and haunted Prisoners Lake. Covington, Ky

If you live in or near Covington, Ky. You most likely have visited the Devou Park. This is a 704 acre park that has everything from a fishing lake, a museum, a 18 hole golf course and a view that is breathtaking. 
There is places that you can have picnics and also play areas for kids. 
They also have an amphitheater that is home to the Kentucky symphony orchestra's summer concert series. 
This is a very beautiful park, you can spend the day walking or biking the trail or enjoying a picnics. 
My dad use to fish at the lake (that is called Prisoners Lake) all the time when I was younger. I have heard all the stories about the lake and how it is suppose to be haunted. I think spending alot of time at the park and lake with my dad is what got me interested in ghost hunting. 
There has been all kinds of stories about the lake from Mobsters bodies being dumped there, to the story of the two lovers who leaped into the lake, but this lake does not have a bottom. 
This lake is fed by natural springs so it stays cold all year long. 
I have always got a really strange feeling every time I would go to this lake. There was always the feeling that you were not alone and someone was watching you. I have had people tell me that they have been fishing by their self's and have heard sounds like moans coming from the lake. No telling what or who is in this lake. 
The Devou Park is located in Covington, Ky. 
If you know any stories or have hard anything about the lake being haunted let me know. I would love to hear more stories about this lake since I spent so much time there as a child.

White Oak Garden Center

We took a trip to the White Oak Garden Center and let me just say this is a flower and garden lovers dream. Now I have to be honest, I can not grow anything. A green thumb I was not born with ( can you say kill a cactus, that's me). I went there for one reason and that was because I saw that they had Minions made out of straw. Yes you heard me right Minions made out of straw people, now who would not want to see that. 
They also had the purple people eater. This is a little purple VW bug that is made up to look like a people eater ( so stinking cute).
They have the the big chair that you can set in and its a great photo op. This place had some of the most beautiful flowers and plants and at this time of the year they have a ton of pumpkins, Halloween and fall decor.
We bought a BIG pumpkin and three small pumpkins ( 2 orange and one one white, that I love).
The people that work here and all very sweet and helpful. They really do care about great customer service. They were fine with us taking pictures inside the store. The very sweet lady that was helping us said that people come there to have their Christmas photos taken. 
I will be going back when it gets close to the Christmas season to see how they have decorated and to pick up a few Christmas items.
I will be buying alot of planets and flowers here as gifts for my parents since my mom has the green thumb and loves flowers. 
I would recommend for everyone to check this place out, you will love it and you will also get great customers services. 
They are located at 3579 Blue Rock Road. Cincinnati, Ohio.

New Richmond, Ohio

When we went to Fatboys, Utopia, and Ulysses S Grant birthplace we went to and through New Richmond, Ohio. This is a really neat town that has a lot to offer. They are a river town and it is a beautiful town. 
It was founded in 1814 and its along the Ohio River in Clermont County. It is the largest and most flourishing village in Clermont County. 
New Richmond is home to the Cardboard Boat Regatta, which is where people make boats out of cardboard and race them down the river. They also have a cardboard boat museum. 
It is also home to the Woodland Mound ( which I will have a post on )
They have the Freedom Underground trail which we are going to see soon.
There is so much to see and do and so much history that I am sure you will love this place.
