We left Bardstown this morning around 8:00, driving eastward on Route 150. Saw lots of beautiful horse farms and and we saw many homes that looked as though they had been abandoned 100 years ago, except for the refrigerators on the porch and the new F150s in the drive. Very interesting to see such contrasts on one highway.
Mona soon realized we were driving very near to Cumberland Falls. Along with her first husband and her daughter Laura, Mona (Laura’s dad) had spent two vacations there and she thought I’d like to see thefalls. Sounded good to me so we took a little detour off into
the Kentucky wilderness and meandered to the falls. Even as we parked we could hear the water flowing through the rocks….one of Mona’s favorite sounds!
the first observation platform. We walked a couple of trails to see several different views of the falls. This would definitely be a great place to vacation!
We saw The Avengers and loved it! Great fun movie with lots of action and comedy. Be sure to stay to the absolute end!
By the end of the movie the rain had slacked off so we went geocaching and found our 800th cache. Then to Chili’s for dinner. We met three guys there….one of which had played fastpitch softball at Borg-Warner field in Decatur. Also, the bartender was born in Springfield, Illinois. Small World! (But I wouldn’t want to paint it!) (Hmmm…do you know where that line came from?)
