Kentucky Road Trip

The Kentucky River in late April. Nicholasville, Kentucky.  When I was a child we would swing from these trees by a rope and drop into the river.  The swimming hole of my 1960’s youth. It hasn’t really changed in over 50 years.

The thing I’m liking about retirement is not having to work if I don’t want to work.

I’ve been laying up here at home the past few weeks, recovering from a back injury. The downtime has allowed my poor old pulled back muscles to return to functionality. I’ll have a few more days of rest and relaxation before I begin my road trip to Kentucky on April 25th. I seem to generally choose the last week of April to make that trip, when made. Derby Week. Meaning the week leading up to the Kentucky Derby which is held each year on the first Saturday of May.

I’ve finally mustered enough coherent thought this weekend to attempt a blog entry.

The photographic theme will be Kentucky today.

The State Capitol Building in Frankfort , Kentucky.
Thoroughbred Foal in Kentucky Bluegrass.

All of these photos were taken in late April, but in different years.

I’ll be starting my road trip back soon and while I’m on the road I hope to share a photo or two.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year in Kentucky.
