Ohio Vacation Day 7 – Waterfall and Ducks
We ate lunch at Fisher’s Cafe & Pub in Peninsula. We ate at Fisher’s earlier in the week. The food and service was good, so we made a return trip. We weren’t disappointed eating here again.
After lunch we drove to Viaduct Park, located in Cuyahoga Valley National Park’s Bedford Reservation. In Viaduct Park is a waterfall–the Great Falls of Tinkers Creek. Going to the waterfall was the reason for the drive to Viaduct Park.
This morning, before leaving for the Akron Zoo, we saw a couple Black-Bellied Whistling Ducks in the wetlands.
Back at the Airbnb later in the day we once again saw two Black-Bellied Whistling Ducks. I took a close-up picture of one of the ducks.
It is rare to see these ducks so far north. Our Airbnb hosts said it was the first time they had seen a Black-Bellied Whistling Duck in their pond. We were thrilled to see these ducks and to have the opportunity to photograph them!
The next day (July 2nd) Bob got up at 5:00 am. I got up an hour later. We packed, got showered and dressed, and said goodbye to Deborah (John was on a grocery run). We were on our way home at 7:20 am. By the way we didn’t see any Black-Bellied Whistling Ducks before our departure.
Our first stop was for breakfast at Bob Evans Restaurant in nearby Streetsboro, OH. After a filling breakfast, we were back on the road at 8:15 am.
We returned home around 11:40 am.
We had a wonderful vacation! We look forward to visiting Hudson, OH again and staying (hopefully) at the same Airbnb.

Pretty Waterfalls. The Whistling Ducks are so cute, I am glad you were able to see them. Great photos. Take care, have a happy weekend!
Oh my goodness, that waterfall is so very pretty as is the video. Those whistling ducks are so cute! Sounds like you had a wonderful time and your photos and video are great!
Just spent quite awhile catching up on your Ohio getaway, Linda, but didn’t comment on every post because. You and Bob had some great excursions and wildlife viewings. I especially liked the waterfalls you visited. That airbnb looked like a wonderful lodging complete with aviary friends. We were away during the same timeframe visiting family in RI and CT and catching up on things at home and blog reading this week.
Love the beautiful photos especially the cute Whistling Ducks.
Love your pictures. Thanks for sharing
