Kentucky Adventure

We took a little vacation to Lexington, Kentucky, last week basically for two reasons. This,

and this.

They were both held here

just over the hill from each other.
If you click on the picture with the scroll button, you will be able to see all of the different things offered at the park. It if VERY large and VERY pretty.

Of course, we got much more than expected.
In Lexington, you can visit the Mary Todd Lincoln home, which we took pictures of but didn't go through because we were either heading through early or late after normal operating hours.
We got to see our tax money at work (or is it China's $?). Anyway, this is what it looks like.

The green sign reads Project funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Orange sign says...Putting America To Work.
A little way down the road on the right from this is .....this.

The Lexington Cemetery.
It is cool. Some folks might think it is morbid to tour a cemetery, but we found it most beautiful and interesting. It is extremely large. You can pick up a bird watching brochure to possibly locate birds that have been spotted there. You can take a walking tour of special trees that are marked with a plaque. It is peaceful and a place I would encourage people to visit if you are passing through Lexington.

I will post pictures of Border Collies doing their thing next time.
