Berea, KY Sunday May 27, 2007

Another day on the road with Dennis and Kathy and Ray and Linda

Another great day in and around Berea. We departed the RV park around 10 am and headed up the road to Richmond, KY in search of a waterfall.

Ray was the designated driver today and I was the navigator. We headed north on 1-75 about 10 miles to the Richmond exit. We then headed west per instructions from our park host. We were told to take a small vehicle since the road does not allow trucks and soon turns into a country road. Take this to mean hilly, winding and narrow. After about three miles past some really nice large estate homes we came to the falls.

The remarks from the driver and backseat were not kind. Something like we drove 775 miles from home to see THIS!!! Nonetheless, we did pull over and take some photos of the dam.

Not the largest falls in the world, certainly not Niagara Falls (that's later in the trip)

We headed back in search of the city of Richmond. Stopped along the way to check on one of the nice houses we saw, Neat house only $430,000 on about 2 acres. This house would have been $1 million at home.

During our tour of the city of Richmond discovered that the driver does not listen to the navigator and as a result there were several times we had to turn around and retrace our steps.

We stopped for lunch to kill time since the ladies wanted to shop in a shoe store we had passed but did not open until 1:30. Our waitress was cute but not the sharpest knife in the drawer. Richmond is the home of the Eastern Kentucky University. The Gators have played them in the past. This coming season the Gators open against Western Kentucky.

We chatted with our waitress about Eastern Kentucky and Western Kentucky and she wanted to know if we were Gator fans. Well it was tough to answer since Ray was wearing an orange and blue shirt that said Florida Gators etc. Then she asked if the Gators were playing Western KY at home or at Western. How do you answer a question like that with a straight face?

Ray said in spite of this that they are "good people" :(

Returned to the RV park via the back roads to view some of the rolling hill countryside. Thus ended another adventure.
