Eaten & Seen in Kentucky

DSC04528We started the weekend at Sky Bridge Station, an adorable hostel and restaurant with all local brews and gourmet hot dogs, right on the edge of Red River Gorge.

tapsSky Bridge Station had all local brews from West Sixth and Country Boy.  Cliff Jumper & Shotgun Wedding were quite good.

DSC04582We stayed at Eighth Pole Inn, a bed and breakfast in Lexington.  It was classic Kentucky, complete with a horse farm and plenty of Keeneland memorabilia.

    This is your “darling mother!” And I have to say, after anyone reads the comment about my picnic spread and that I am “darling”, the next photo is a huge picture of a smiling, “darling” horse – when I noticed this, I laughed out loud!! 😉
