Arrived in Lexington

Current Location: Kentucky Horse Park Campground, Lexington, Kentucky

We took our time this morning getting packed up and hooked up in Ashland. The drive to our current location in Lexington is only about 2 hours with all but about 3 miles of it on interstate. As we drove into the Horse Park campground, we noted a few spaces we liked that looked fairly level (many of the sites here are angled up- or down-hill). We picked site 207, which is almost dead center in the park near the camp store and office. We have three nice pine trees on our door side which provides nice shade.

Once set up, we ate lunch, then headed downtown to do a little shopping. Our first stop was at Failte Irish Imports, one of our favorite little shops in downtown Lexington. We had decided that the next time we were in town, we were going to pick out matching Celtic wedding bands. We found a pair that fit great and paid for them along with a couple other Irish goodies.

After the Irish shop, we stopped by Magpie Yarn, Val’s favorite yarn shop in Lexington. She shopped for a bit so she could pick up some yarn for a couple projects. Malcolm sat on the husband chair and checked his various social networks.

Once done there, we stopped by the grocery store to pick up a few items, then back to the trailer to drop off the groceries and relax for a bit. We were supposed to meet Val’s sister about 45 minutes north of the campground for dinner. On the way there, she called to send her regrets as she had to work. We went on and had dinner out anyway, but we ate at Skyline Chili instead of the original planned stop at Cracker Barrel.

On the way back to the campground, we detoured to the Frankfort area to try to find some of Val’s relatives in a cemetery outside of town. She wasn’t sure where the gravesites were, so after walking around for a bit, we got back in the truck and headed back to the trailer. We spent the rest of the evening relaxing.
