Sans labor in Kentucky

Charles and I spent Labor Day weekend in Kentucky. Why Kentucky, you might ask. Well, it was close and we've never really been there.

We stayed at a very nice B&B called the Scott Station Inn. It was very much like staying with family. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. The breakfasts were delicious and the room was comfortable. I highly recommend a stay here. The owners are actually looking to sell the B&B so they can move closer to their daughter. I considered it for a brief second. But then realized I have absolutely no reason to move to KY.

On Saturday night, we went to a Lexington Legends baseball game. The pitcher threw a no hitter which has never been done in their history. And there were fireworks. Minor league baseball games are always a good time.

On Sunday we visited the Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill. It was a nice "living history" museum. We walked around and saw a pumpkin patch, cats, goats, apples and more. It rained a little bit, but it was nice to walk around. We ate lunch at a local deli. Charles had a really interesting sandwich. It was ham, munster cheese, and apple butter wrapped in a tortilla and put in a panini press. It was pretty tasty! After that, we rode the riverboat in the rain, which was very relaxing.

I love visiting small town America. It's so peaceful.
