Lexington, KY and we awoke to the distant whistle of trains (no more blue grass this am) along with humidity of 87% and drizzle. The tent campers were busily adjusting the blue tarps hastily placed during the storm last night.  I loved our nice cozy, little RV even more while watching them.

We drove past black fenced horse farms to Georgetown (founded 1741) for breakfast.

We happened to find a unique little Mom and Pop restaurant called Fava's in the old part of town.  It was started as a candy shop in 1910 and blossomed into a very eclectically decorated eatery over the years.  Food… lots of it and excellent.  I loved their flaky biscuits and Dave’s glass of orange juice was enough for a weeks worth of breakfasts.  Overall it was a southern down home, friendly regulars, busy place to spend time people watching and eating. 

We drove back roads to Louisville to view more of the huge horse farms (large decorative gates with black fencing criss crossing the fields).  We also saw many of the bourbon distilleries that KY is so famous for.  We had done a tour of them on a previous trip so continued on our way through Louisville out of KY.  Every time we are in KY we think this is where we want to live…but then reality strikes with the heat and humidity making WA look very comfortable.

We are on a mission to reach MO for a quilting seminar so made time through Indiana and half way across Illinois.  I didn’t see any deer at all today but we did see 3 turkeys in a field munching on something. 

Big thunderstorm after parking and hooking up in campground. 


Miles:  282  wow!

Connie....I enjoy catching up on everything you are seeing, sounds like a lot of fun. Weather here very variable, after lots and lots of rain just had a not too shaby weekend...with sun! Went to Everett Legon park for their annual garden show and it was lovely to just wander round for a few hours, enjoying all the plants and crafts. Have a good next leg of your journey.

I love the sound of train whistles too. Can't wait til Saturday when we leave on Amtrak. I'll have my computer with me so I'll check in for your blog updates as I can. We'll be crossing each other in the same time zone too! Keep having fun. :)
