Kentucky & Ohio

 We stopped and visited the Maker's Mark Distillery on our way through Kentucky.  
This is the first liquor store in America.
 The owners home sitting up on the hill.
 Most Bourbon is made in Kentucky because of the water.  
This is a little stream coming down from the lake in the mountains onto the property.
 Distilling Whiskey.  See the bubbles.  This is a huge wooden vat that is probably 20 feet deep.

 A stop off for coffee on our way to Lancaster, Ohio,
 It was such beautiful country.
 Our hosts at the Bed &Breakfast in Lancaster, PA were in the Peace Corps.  
This is a painting hanging in our room done by an elephant.  Very colorful.
 The garages at the Bed & Breakfast in Lancaster.
 A picture of our Bed & Breakfast.  A lovely home with a wrap around porch.
 While Pat was setting up the computer, I sat out on the porch on this swing.  
It was a wonderful day.  While sitting out there, an Amish buggy and horse went by with a woman in it.  
The horse was so pretty.  I wished I had my camera.
 Another section of the porch to enjoy.  Pat and I went to some wineries,did some tasting and bought a bottle of wine.  Then on to dinner at The Fireside Tavern.  When we were parking the car to go into the restaurant the same horse and buggy went by on the road.  Again no camera.  
We woke up to this breakfast the next morning.  It was an egg souffle, ham, sauteed sweet potatoes and banana bread.  Sara even served us dessert.  Too much food for breakfast.  

This house was across the street from our Bed & Breakfast.  
It was so nicely painted.  Very Pennsylvanian...
