|Kat and Mandy - The Warrior Girls|
As you can tell Mandy and Kat had a great time having their picture made in a Corvette. Heck for that matter so did Mary and I. It was fun to sit and be photographed. After the museum we headed on to David and Susanna's. Thank goodness for GPS units. We keyed in their address and it took us right to the front door. I called David from the courtyard to tell him we had arrived and he thought I meant in Louisville. Louisville is an awesome city. There is a lot of diversity, rhythm, and pulse. After we got settled we took David to supper at the coolest restaurant. If you watch the Food Channel, which I do religiously, and know who Bobby Flay is...then you must know that not only did he do one of his infamous Throwdowns here.....it is also one of Oprah's favorite restaurantes. The place was charming. I ate a hot brown, dish very famous in Louisville. It was yummy. We all had something different and shared bites. Everything was so good.
After dinner at Lynn's Paradise Cafe we toured Louisville at night. David took us to see Churchill Downs (which was beautiful, but not anything like I expected it to be. It is right in the middle of the city....not out on some 100 acre tract of horse ranch - that was a big disappointment) and 4th Street (a famous night spot). What a bustling town. I was glad when we returned to the apartment and settled down for the night.
It was a good day for sure. Monday we would get up, have a wonderful breakfast casserole fixed for us by our wonderful host, David, left David's apartment and stopped at the Mary Alice Hadley factory and then the Louisville Slugger Museum, then headed on to Michigan. We were shooting for Grand Rapids....but were willing to go all the way to Traverse City if we were able. Tomorrows post will be pictures from our second day of traveling. Hope you enjoy my pictoral blog. Who knows maybe you will visit some of these places one day because you saw them on my blog.
