But this morning there was an elemental joy. The campground was virtually empty. Schools are still in session and families have not begun the summer vacations. In the summer, it probably hums with the noises of a temporary town, with the camps sites separated by strips of grass like the lawns of townhouses communities. But this morning, the camp site was virtually empty
Mostly, I stand and watch. Framed by the green hills, the Lake Sutton was covered with swirling mists. It reminded me of the legend of Arthur, wounded in battle, and setting sail through the mists to the shores of Avalon, an island out of time.
The rest of the day was devoted to driving-about 360 miles to Louisville, KY, with stops at Biscuit World for breakfast, and a surprising discovery at lunch--there are White Castle hamburgers in Kentucky! and they sell pulled pork barbecue along with the traditional hamburgers!!! In Lexington, we visited the Buffalo Trace distillery to learn how Kentucky Bourbon is made, and to taste several. Camping tonight across the Ohio from Louisville in Indiana. I use the camps wireless connection to write while seated at the picnic table lit only by candlelight. How very bizarre!
