We traveled to Lexington, KY July 7 - 11 to visit Jay's family. I was sick the entire time. In fact, this summer cold had me down for two solid weeks. As in zero-energy-can't-breathe-sore-throat-want-to-curl-up-in-bed-for-a-week sick. Not being up to snuff, I didn't have the energy to get photographs and missed several opportunities for a college and structural columns, among other things. But I did get a few shots in Kentucky.
#2 - an ornate door knocker
Okay, I suppose technically it might be a gate pull? But it looks like a door knocker to me. And what is really cool is that this knocker belongs to this:
The Castle Post in Versailles KY, just outside of Lexington. It was built in 1969 by the Martin family, so it isn't really old, but designed after old castles in Europe. It is now operated as a luxury bed and breakfast. You can't tell from this photo, but the 4 towers at the corners are just part of the outer fence. The castle really only takes up the very middle of the photo.
#12 - a public restroom
#20 - a natural body of water:
This is the Kentucky River as seen from inside the in-laws Jeep Wrangler while crossing on the Valley View Ferry. The ferry only fits two cars at once. It was a rainy day when we were out, so we didn't leave the vehicle for photos on either side. The ferry was founded in 1780 and is believed to be the oldest continually operating business in Kentucky.
The few other photos I have from Kentucky are of horse farms and don't fit any of the scavenger hunt requirements. And honestly, I didn't really get anything good.
