Location: Diamond Lake Resort, Owensboro, Kentucky
Dates: July 24 to 26, 2017
Our first stop heading west from our Kentucky events was at Diamond Lake Resort. We have friends that co-own the campground that we met through their daughter (and her horses) via the internet. Though we’ve only known them three years or so, it seems like much longer.
Once we got set up, we stopped back at the office so the Smith’s could feed us lunch (they offered) at the grill. We enjoyed our food and visited for a bit before heading back to the trailer. Malcolm got some work in the rest of the afternoon and part of the evening. Otherwise, we just relaxed and took it easy.
On Tuesday, we headed into downtown Owensboro to check out the re-vitalized riverfront area. There is a lot of new construction nearby and a really nice park all along the riverfront area.
After walking around the park for a while, we headed to the post office to drop off some items that needed to be shipped. We also did some shopping, including groceries, and had lunch at Donato’s pizza.
We headed back to the trailer to put groceries away, then went over to the nearby antique mall, called Preservation Hall. It is set up in an old school building (there is a newer building a mile or so away) and was fun to wander around.
After shopping there for a bit (Val found some clothes), we headed back to the trailer for the rest of the evening. Malcolm caught up on some more work.
On Wednesday morning, we got hooked up and pulled around to the front to say goodbye to our friends the Smiths. We then headed on out west for our next night’s stop.
