Finishing Up Christmas Week at the “Overlook”

Christmas outings ended on Friday with a trip to the Overlook Restaurant in Leavenworth, Indiana

Less than an hour away… a pleasant drive k9939853 with the sun shining…

Established in 1948 after the town had to be moved up on a bluff where it stands today… overlooking the Ohio River

First it was a small grocery store/gas station… Later a Greyhound Bus Stopth

… and then  the Restaurant…

Not, crowded… was able to walk right in and sit down… when we arrived…

I grabbed a few photos of the Ohio River… the Restaurant sits right by… up on an “Overlook”
