41st Anniversary

June 10, 2009

Our wedding anniversary is June 8th but we celebrated on June 9th and 10th with a trip to KY.  We began with a visit to Fort Boonesborough (1775) SP which was of interest because of its connection to famous pioneers Daniel Boone and Simon Kenton who lived in Springfield.


We shared a four course dinner at the Jean Farris Winery & Bistro on the Old Richmond road south of Lexington and then drove to downtown Lexington to walk through the Gratz Park Historic District where Transylvania University is located.  Afterward, we drove about 12 miles north to the Jordan Farm B & B which is a small working horse farm.


On June 10th we started the day with a walk around Jordan Farm and then spent most of the day touring the Kentucky Horse Park.  We saw the Hall of Champions show, Mare & Foal show, Parade of Breeds, International Museum of the Horse and finished by watching (in the rain) some of the jumping competition that was taking place in several of the outdoor arenas.  The world Equestrian championships will be held here in 2010 – the first time ever in the U.S.



We took a short side trip to the Woodford Reserve Distillery, famous for its top shelf Kentucky bourbon, before driving back to Ohio.
