Road Trip-Kentucky Version

by Kay~Kacey on 6/12/2008

So right after we got back from our Texas Road trip with the boys, SuperGuy and I headed out to Kentucky for a wedding.

Lexington, Kentucky. Beautiful and gorgeous part of the country.

Kentucky Country Road

We drove around these lovely Kentucky country roads. SuperGuy and I arguing :wink: off and on about whose turn it was to drive…we both wanted to be the passenger so we could get pictures. I’m having a love/hate relationship with SuperGuy having his own camera…

Kentucky horse farm

The horse farms there are amazing. Beautiful, sprawling, go on for miles farms. With lovely wooden fencing. Almost all the farms had either this black fencing or white fencing. Hey, any of you horsey people know why most of the farms had double widths of fencing about 6 feet apart. Well, fencing around a pasture, then another whole row of fencing about 6 feet inside of the outside fencing.

limestone walls

The area is known for its old handmade limestone walls. Which are just gorgeous and surround many of the older farms. (gorgeous seems to be my word of choice for this town).

embassy suites

After driving around the countryside we came back to the Embassy Suites. They are awesome. Free drinks and appetizers for happy hour and a free breakfast..and not just the crummy cereal and stale bagels some hotels call “free breakfast”. Though, I guess “free” is relative, isn’t it?? :mrgreen: Anyway, they had a nice bar there too…secret tip… :secret: ask for Art and ask him to make you a martini.

You wouldn’t believe what we saw across the street from the church where the wedding was held. Well, I’ll just show you tomorrow, ’cause you wouldn’t believe me if I just told you about it…

Kasey, I think the fencing your talking about is runs. To move the horses from one area to the other and keep them off certain pastures. So maybe it will grow. The horses will eat it down to the dirt. They pull it up by the roots and then end up with what you call sand bellies. That can cause some major problems with a horse.

Beautiful shots. And I love Embassy Suites, too. My kids always want to stay in one! :beer:

I have never been to any south eastern states and I think I should remedy that in the future. Looks lush in a different way from the Northwest…
You are putting the miles on…

Beautiful country in Kentucky. Love the tree lined road.

Oh, I want to go to Kentucky! Well, okay I’ve been there as a kid when we went camping, but that was way too long ago. And we didn’t drive around the horse farms.

That picture of the stone wall…..BE-YOU-TEE-FULL. Of course, I am quite partial to all things stone/rock.

You’ve certainly had some traveling fun lately, Kacey! That’s so very nice! :smile:

We went through Kentucky (and Lexington) on our move from TX to MI. We fell in love with the greenness and lushness of Kentucky, that we didn’t want to leave. Especially my horse crazy daughter! Just gorgeous!

Beautiful. :)

I remember the first time I drove through Kentucky. I thought it was gorgeous, all the hills and valleys, but I also thought, “I could never love here.” I couldn’t see the sky!
