I Never Expected ...

I never expected to enjoy Kentucky so much.
We have driven through the state before, spent time in Louisville, 
but on our recent trip there, I soaked in its beauty like never before.
The stately horse farms and beautiful fences,
the deep green of Kentucky bluegrass ...
So much feasting for the eyes.
We stayed in a very small town, and I may just have
enjoyed that most of all.
I loved being able to walk everywhere.  I loved the sound of the
train coming through town, and the old fashioned drug store
where time has stood still.
On the way there, we spent a few hours at the ark.
Truly amazing.
And yes, big!


  1. Small town USA! I have fond memories of the ones I grew up in. Were you visiting someone or just passing through?

  2. Small towns have a certain feel to them, don't they? I enjoyed seeing your lovely photos of your visit to Kentucky. The Ark is enormous-Wow! The flowers, the church, the stone wall, the quaint downtown--all so pretty and peaceful. ♥

  3. What a fabulous place to spend time. I love small towns and of course the beautiful horse farms. I took a drive yesterday and spent the day in Micanopy, FL...that was fun. Enjoy your day! Hugs!

  4. We used to spend a summer month with my great grandmother in Danville, KY. I remember summer mornings and brilliant blue morning glory on her front porch. Night brought out fireflies. We fell asleep listening to train whistles. Precious memories!


  5. We visited KY for the first time a few years ago. It was so beautiful and we were able to find the area that my family originally came from. Hoping to go back soon for another visit!

  6. Did you like the Ark? We are thinking of going in the fall...

  7. I think you just turned into our new Travel Agent!

  8. It's nice to know there are still small towns like that out there somewhere! Wow, that ark is very impressive.

  9. Very pretty...a line of my family settled in Kentucky and they love it there. So...will you tell us more about The Ark?

  10. I've never been to Kentucky, but I enjoyed seeing its beauty through your eyes!

    Wow . . . The Ark does look big! And it is recreated in the original proportions, right? Amazing!

  11. Well you will certainly get no argument from there for 11 years, we were able to appreciate the beauty of the state. We lived in the small town of Mt. Sterling near Lexington (right in the middle of horse country) and it had many of the characteristics that you described, train and all. We have not made it back to the Ark but would really like to visit it one day. It sounds like a very enjoyable trip!

  12. We're hoping to make the trip to the Ark this summer. It's just down the road a piece from here. Kentucky has some beautiful scenery. Thank you for sharing your journey.

  13. It's so nice to be able to spend the time to appreciate an area. About that ark...

  14. It looks like you stayed in a beautiful area. Small towns are wonderful for walking and absorbing the culture and scenery.


I enjoy the conversations that come with comments!
