Photo Journal: Lexington, KY

Chick in Costume

 

If it hadn’t been for Jill, I most likely never would have gone down to Lexington, KY. I’m glad I did despite the travel mishaps. There was a lot to see and plenty of cool places to go. Besides that, it was also an incredibly scenic place complete with a cute city and gorgeous, wide-open plots of land. It’s such an interesting mix of landscapes and fun people (especially that chick in the superhero outfit), I couldn’t help but like it.

Some jockeys are practicing while others bathe their horses in the cold morning air.

I had a lot of people ask me why I was going down to Kentucky. In fact, I was starting to wonder that myself. Did I really want to go to a bunch of Bourbon distilleries in the course of two days. I had just learned that I didn’t get Columbus Day off so sadly we had to make the trip back on Sunday (a ten hour drive). I felt bad because I couldn’t drive so my friend, Jill, had to drive all the way down and back both days. That’s a lot of driving. For some reason, my travel never goes according to plan.
