Days 51 - 52- Lexington, KY

Lexington is Horse Capitol of Kentucky.  Our short two hour drive from Louisville was over beautiful still green rolling hills lined with the preverbial white and brown flat board fencing.  Countless horses dotted the pastures.  Lexington is a beautiful city, well organized and well maintained.  The homes are spectacular and we spent three days here.  We found a great campsite at the Ft. Boonesborough State Park right next to the historic fort reconstructed from Daniel Boone's days.  UPon arrival we got to a movie theater to satisfy our hunger for a great film.

On our first day we visited the Mary Todd Lincoln home, wandered the historic downtown and had a taste of Bourbon Ale at a local pub.  Lots of the tourist sites are closed on Monday and Tuesday so we wandered quite a bit and then took in another film.
