Have a hearty lunch at the Overlook Restaurant, where it simply serves any food that is nice. Out of the restaurant's windows, you can view the sinuous Ohio River. Just outside the restaurant, there is a boardwalk with white wooden rocking chairs where you can enjoy the river scene, the sunshine, and the crispy air.
After sunbathing for awhile, I drove down to Patoka Lake, created to serve the people of Indiana flood control, water supply, and recreation. It was isolated. Besides my partner and I, we saw no one there. Perhaps the weather was still freezing. Not an appropriate time to make this trip. On the other side of the lake, there was a marine adorned with opulent yachts. One called "The Admiral". We did some exploration on the boat, apparently no one was there.
Driving our car back to the town, it was near to sunset. The sky was mottled pink, blue and violet as the sun dipped closed to the horizon – with a menagerie of cows and horses foraging on the lush field. Afar, a labyrinth of vine maples once dressed in autumn hues had withered their leaves for winter. As the glow of the sun faded, a serenity and idyllic scene was left behind.
