Our Whirlwind Trip






We spent the night here at The Cumberland Inn in
Williamsburg, KY.  The hotel and museum complex
are owned by The University of the Cumberlands.








 





 Clint and I both agreed, we drove some long distances
on some very treacherous back roads.  One was Hwy 95   from
Middlesborough to Williamgsburg, KY, the closest way
to travel to Cumberland Falls State Park.


 

There was heavy fog in the mountains this morning.





How disappointing, I searched going and coming and could not find the old house I had written about in my previous blog!  I am not one to give up easily, I will search again soon.  The house was on a long road, I may have gotten on the road before or after where I remembered the old house. 

This is a "mini" blog, we just got back from Kentucky about an hour ago and I am exhausted.  I will be writing more about our trip.  I can't  believe how much we were able to accomplish since noon yesterday when we left.  I have to say Clint and I both had a wonderful time and it was an adventure!

Back to my friends, later .... have a wonderful evening.

Glad you're safely home, Cindy! Sorry you couldn't find that old house. Do you think it might have been demolished since your last visit? The inn is magnificent. I can't wait to read all about your adventures. By chance do any of them revolve around Clint and his penchant for mannequins? (LOL)

Cindy I enjoyed the Gatlinburg and Kentucky posts. Scrolling down your blog to read your past posts is always enjoyable for me. Loved the silver lined clouds photo!

Hope you go back someday to find that old house... sounds really interesting.

Love

The part I loved best was when you drove us home. I asked you if you were tired and you said "no". Then, you turned turned on to our street and promptly turned into the wrong driveway. Whew. I'd hate to see you if you WERE tired!

Shady, we did run across one mannequinn, she must not have been Clint's "type", she had coal dust on her face and was at the park's visitor's center. Actually it was down right tacky, trying to pass off this figure as a realistic coal miner! (Sittin' here laughing) It has been almost 14 years since I saw that old house, it seems like yesterday. I will continue my search. That is a possibility that it has been demolished. Appreciate your visit, Shady! Stay cool!

Hi Lidj, hope you are doing well. I need to visit your blog. Yesterday I spent most of the day trying to assemble a bookcase we ordered. Not fun! Today I assemble the second one. Thank you so much for your kind words and compliments. Take care, Lidj.

Angela, just a few minutes ago Clint was telling me you had a great blog post today. I am going to read it. You are a talented writer, one of your many gifts. Thank you, Angela for your visit.

Petra, you are such a faithful friend! Hope you and your family are doing well. I need to apologize to everyone for not visiting their blogs as I should. Have a wonderful day on your island, Petra, thank you so much for stopping by!

Clint, I truly did not feel that tired when you asked me the question. You know how I get my "second wind". It usually hits me that I am tired when I step inside the house.
