Lunch With the TriState Explorer's Club

I met with the TriState Explorer's Club today and had a wonderful time.  They have a deep interest in getting out there and seeing what this area has to offer.  They drive and hike, visit stores, outdoor areas and museums, and try many different restaurants.   Today it was Adrian's in Calcutta.  The food was wonderful, as always there, and the company even better.  
We talked about the Legends of Columbiana County, like Charles Arthur Floyd, and Gretchen and Esther.  We discussed the Grimms Bridge Area and Thompson Park.  At about 1pm we went down to Gretchen's lock and talked some more.  Then several members decided to walk back to Gretchen's Lock, #40.   Despite a fallen tree and a somewhat hot day, the walk was pleasant.  I learned a little about Scenic Vista Park.  Enough to wet my appetite to go there and have a closer look. 
I hope they had as good of a time today as I did.  I would gladly do this again. I hope they would too!
