We had a great little getaway and are now back home. Here are a few pics.
In the first one, we were in the upstairs of the Old Talbott Tavern in Bardstown, KY.
Talbott Tavern is said to be the oldest western stagecoach stop in America as the westward expansion brought explorers from the east into Kentucky. According to legend, figures straight from the history books sought lodging here during their travels; as a young boy Abraham Lincoln and his family stayed here, Gen. George Rogers Clark, Daniel Boone, and exiled French King Louis Phillipe and his entourage stayed here, even painting murals on the upstairs walls. There are noticeable bullet holes in the now faded paintings and Jesse James is said to be responsible for them.
We had an excellent dinner here by candlelight and then the hostess gave us the keys to the upstairs guest rooms that were not in use, and we did a bit of "ghost hunting"
(No, we did not see or hear anything)
On our way to Shaker Village, we found a huge primitive store and spent a good 2 hours browsing. I was in Heaven and wanted to live there!
We ended our trip with an overnight at Shaker Village, our most favorite place for a mini-vacation.
Break is over, back at it now!
