Life...Fun and Kentucky Real Estate


The Kentucky River - Clays Ferry - Boonesboro - Valley View

The Kentucky River - Clays Ferry - Boonesboro - Valley View

The Kentucky River at Clays Ferry KY is a hidden jewel. When I was young, my family and I spent most of our weekends on our Sea Ray boat between the two locks of Boonesboro Beach and Valley View.

My cousins that had a camp with a boat dock in between. Back then there was so much river traffic. Many families had boats and we knew everyone. It was one big family... for quite a few years.

There were many unique boats.

I can remember one that was a Chinese junk called the Tiki. I heard that it was brought over in pieces from China and reassembled.

The Kentucky River was an awesome place to be and grow up.

Late in the day we would be hungry and tie up at the dock of Johnny Allmans to go eat fried catfish. Across the street is Halls On The River that is still there today. It's a great place for seafood and fried banana peppers. 

Many restaurants and boatdocks and boats are now gone.

It seems too quiet, but it's so beautiful and calm.

Time stands still at the Kentucky River... come sit a spell.

This looks and sounds like the perfect place to sit and just reflect.  Think I'll sit a spell.
