On the way to Florida last summer we spent an extra day in Barren County, Kentucky.
We stayed on the Interstate in Cave City, down the road from the county seat so we could visit area caverns, among them Mammoth Cave (as in big, but not terribly interesting).
With teen boys in the car, we couldn’t stop at Cave City without visiting the knife store.
And since we had already seen Mammoth Cavern, last year we went to the much more interesting Diamond Cavern.
Diamond Cavern is so much better than Mammoth Cavern.
We ate dinner outside at Colton’s Bar and Grill in the Barren County seat of Glasgow.
On the way there, we passed Wall Street.
Who knew that Wall Street could intersect Happy Valley Road?
On Sunday we decided to drive around the county.
There was a funeral procession.
We saw cows headed for a drink.
Others farmers raised goats.
We passed an Amish buggy.
As we continued our tour, we saw big gourds strung on a wire at 1620 Peter Creek Road.
And what else did we find of interest?
There was an oil well.
We approached a caravan of vehicles on a really back road.
People were all dressed up headed for a stream in the hilly countryside.
I noticed an upper grade school boy dressed in a white shirt, tie and suspenders.
Then, I saw that the group was headed to a stream where some had already gathered.
I didn’t have the foresight to take a photo from that angle, but when I realized it was a baptism, I leaned got a shot down the hill of the parked cars and the parishioners walking to the stream.
