My Old Kentucky Home


Kentucky is noted for horses and bourbon
so after a morning at The Old Friends Horse Farm,
we drove a few miles east to Kentucky's oldest distillery.

Woodford Reserve, the first Kentucky distillery
Cozy lounge with large leather chairs and sofas.
and shelves and shelves of bourbon in all shapes and sizes.
We met our new RV rowdy roadies at the distillery lounge.
And we are sober!  Honest!  
Beautiful rolling hills on the distillery grounds.
We don't drink bourbon, so we didn't take the tour.
Well, I did order a mint julep a few years ago in Savannah, Georgia,
in celebration of the Kentucky Derby.
But after two sips, I couldn't finish it -- way too strong for this lady.
so ...
A long, windy, narrow road led us to my kind of hangout ...

Prodigy Winery and Vineyards
Prodigy Winery and Vineyards is the perfect place to relax, kick off your shoes and
do some wine tasting.
Lots of extravagant lady's Kentucky derby hats,
gifts, and wine!
A complimentary wine glass with wine tasting.
Because I'm such a good girl, Robinski bought me a bottle of dry red wine.
Calm serenity overlooking the vineyards (a pond is to the right)

Travel Tip:  Try not to cram too much into one day.

After such a full day of touring, its always nice to come home
to our home-on-wheels, Moon River and have a glass of vino.

Rob and I thank the Lord every day for the opportunity to
travel across this beautiful land,
and meet kind and generous people who want the best for our country.
Let us continue to pray for our country,
for our men and women who are serving our country,
and for our President.

Before the mountains were brought forth, 
or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world,
even from everlasting to everlasting,
thou art GOD
Psalm 90:2

I wish you oceans of summer travel blessings!
