Ashland, Kentucky Day 1 (GA491)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Seaside, Oregon. I’m scheduled to depart October 22nd.

 

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted May 15, 2013…

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 125 miles from Lexington to Ashland Kentucky.

 

 

Before I talk of that further…I want to talk about the day before yesterday…our last full day at Keeneland Horse Racing Track. Once again we had breakfast at the track kitchen, then walked through the stable area and then to watch the horses at their morning exercise runs on the track. Here are some of the photos I took…

When you are in the aura of these beautiful animals…you cannot seem to get enough photos.

 

 

 

 

 

Okay…it was time to move on. I stared yesterday with the intent of driving on U.S. Highway 60 all the way. But after only about 25 miles…it proved too narrow, windy up and down with too many low overhanging tree branches…

002

 

 

 

 

 

Since it had nothing spectacular to offer…I abandoned it and as much as I dislike them…got on Interstate Highway 64…

About 100 miles later we ended up parked at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Airee #2329 in Ashland, Kentucky…

Even though it is not racing season, there are still horses here which we got to see yesterday morning. I took so many photos that I’ve decided to show the photos taken in the stable area today. Race track photos can be seen tomorrow.

 

 

 

 

 

The day started with a delightful sunrise…

The people walking the horses to cool down after an exercise run are called Hotwalkers. The people taking care of the horses are called Grooms. As a teenager back in New England I did both jobs over a three-year period part-time at Suffolk Downs in Massachusetts, Rockingham Park in New Hampshire and Lincoln Downs in Rhode Island. Wandering around the stable area brought back lots of long-ago memories…
