Once we were safely in Louisville (cheaper than Lexington), we headed out--but I told Donna we needed to stop and find a liquor store so that I could get come Bourbon barrel Ale and some "Bourbon I couldn't get in Texas".
So we found the Liquor Barn....which we both envisioned as a drive through type set up.
Nope. It's a freaking warehouse.
AND we had a very knowledgeable man tell us all about local bourbons. We settled on three that were relatively inexpensive, but that would give us three different flavors, and not your "run of the mill" bourbon. I was very excited to try them!
Once we finished (after Rox made some killer almond milk ice cream with frozen strawberries and bananas), we started to talk about our upcoming trip to Africa in June. Larry brought out the "big gun"......er, perhaps I should say "lenses", since it's a photo safari.
It was quite a spread, to be sure. Larry's letting me use the smallish canon almost hidden in the back with my lens (uh, that I bought from him) attached. The rest of it is all his and Rox's. They are serious about their photography. And I have seen the brilliant photos they brought back last time they went, so I cannot wait to see these miracles for myself.
So tomorrow I'll get a chance to try some of this swag out as the first Rolex riders go at 9:30 am. I see a trip to Quillin's in our future, then it's on to the horse park!
