But then we remembered, and also remembered the reason we had planned the trip: to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary. So, celebrate we did.
Since Sunday morning, we made a tour of eastern Kentucky that included Harrodsburg (for church and lunch at Beaumont Inn), Berea (for a stroll around town and the college campus, dinner and a stay at the historic Boone Tavern) and Pine Mountain State Park (for a round of golf, hiking, reading and cooking) and then back home today, via the eastern Kentucky towns of Harlan, Hazard, Hyden and Winchester (with a pleasant lunch stop at the Engine House Deli and Pub).
|Sunday service at United Presbyterian Church in Harrodsburg|
|Lunch at Beaumont Inn, famous for its yellow-legged fried chicken |
and two-year-old Kentucky cured country ham. We had both.
|The scenery on the Wasioto Golf Course more than made up for any bad shots.|
|Our hideaway in the woods.|
|Hiked to the top of chain rock, |
a huge bolder held in place
to keep it from crashing into the town of Pineville directly below.
|Found nothing to buy, |
but filled our pockets with acorns, buckeyes and ginko seeds
to scatter around Farm Dover.
