Okay, Okay. The first real day of travel started out quite stormy and windy and rainy. Such fun. We headed out south of Cincinnati en route to Eastern Kentucky and the weather got progressively nicer the further east we went. Kentucky is beautiful this time of year. We saw some cool sights on the way down
Finally stopped back up beyond at family property. It’s lovely to sit on the porch and listen to the birds chirp and bumblebees drone instead of city traffic and tires squealing. It’s almost as if I can feel my spiritual energies revving back into gear after being oppressed by the city. It’s a good day.
I think the Garmin is definitely trying for the most scenic routes. We went some back way across a mountain I’ve never seen before because of a closure on KY-7. Beautiful, but a little concerning as it appeared to be someone’s driveway more than a public road. All told, however, we got here safely and have settled in for a few days.
It’s good to be back on the farm. I was hoping for some blackberries, but I guess we’re here a little too early in the season – looks like just buds on the canes. The cherries are in bloom and the bugs haven’t reached their inevitable crescendo (yet). We passed some little stores on 172 that I’d like to drop by before we leave the area. (There’s a general store that has a variety of really nice preserves if I remember right, but the sewing shop is not on my list. I think Sean will want to strangle me if I try to get any more fabric stuffed into the trailer.)
