|Good morning, Tennessee!|
|Fueling up with some cheap diesel at Sam's|
|Just some pictures of the drive today|
|This made us hope for a nice day|
|There are a few of these huge beautiful crosses on our winter route|
Once on I-75N we could relax as we were on it for most of the trip. Our plan was to stop at Lexington, KY. Yesterday, that was the plan. After doing the extra hour yesterday, it shortened today’s drive. When we crossed into Kentucky around 9, we stopped at a very crowded Information Centre but we didn’t feel that there was room to open our slide safely. Therefore, we didn’t make ourselves a coffee. We stopped for fuel at a Shell station around 11 and bought one and had one of our snack bars that we keep in the truck.
|Sorry for the blur but we've mentioned weird town names before|
This one made me plug my nose, just in case
|A bit of a snag up due to construction|
|but it didn't last as long as we first thought it would|
|Time for some water towers - because I can|
|tall skinny ones|
The manager was outside and we asked him about spending the night and moving along the back of the property instead. He couldn’t have been more obliging as he welcomed us. Another Cracker Barrel meal. Yay! The remainder of the day was peaceful. I made myself a tea and Bill had a hot chocolate while we ate our lunch sandwiches. We were pretty hungry. The sky is clouded over completely and it is 57F. Not too bad for being this far north.
I’d finished Cradle and All last night and I know that my sweetie won’t enjoy it, so tucked it away to drop off at our park. It sure wasn’t a typical James Patterson story BUT it was typical in the sense that I kept turning the pages! It was quite weird into the religious side of the Virgin Mary. I found a Michael Connelly, one of his later ones with Harry Bosch and got into that last night and then more today. Bill downloaded pictures, read some of his book and then dozed.
|This could be (and was a bit) intimidating but also pretty with the skyscrapers|
|Ohio River? We weren't sure|
So close to home now!
|Looks like this overpass should have a fancy name|
|Yum, and no dishes again!|
|Forest Park is where we found our overnight spot|
I didn't get a picture of us in the Cracker Barrel
|Uh, just let me know when we get there|
