As you may have guessed from the photos we are in BOURBON COUNTRY. Visiting the folks and having a blast just catching up and shopping in town.
We don’t get to see Michael’s parents as often as we would like and the new coach puts some distance restraints on where we can stay near them. Bardstown is Dad’s home, so it makes for a nice visit.
This time around we skipped the distillery tours – after all I am already a Maker’s Mark Ambassador – and just stayed in town shopping. The fellas were patient and great about all of it because they knew The Rickhouse was the finish line.
We met up with Tom and saw his beautiful and throaty Shelby Cobra — as a Tesla owner I can tell you I do not miss most things about ICE vehicles — but when it fired up and I could feel it in my chest. Oh how I wished my Daddy could have seen it.
So, back to the shopping.
Hurst Discount Drug was a nice little shop. Diner, pharmacy and gift shop all rolled into one.
The Olive Spout was fabulous. Alexis was very helpful. I sampled several vinegars and came out with a 750ml bottle of my favorite – Gravenstein Apple White Balsamic.
We popped into Making Good Scentz and it smelled so yummy in there!! I came away with several lip balms – because you know I am all about the lip balms – and a lotion that smelled so yummy I had to. After all, when you are in BOURBON COUNTRY you will buy all the things BOURBON!! Yep, BOURBON BARREL scented lotion!!
And before we went to the Whiskey Museum we made a visit to Kentucky Bourbon Marketplace. Soft t-shirts, bourbon chocolates, bourbon, and a ghost story closed out the visit.
Again many thanks to our wonderful parents. We had a fabulous day and we are so grateful to you have you both in our life.
*BIG RIG note — White Acres Campground in Bardstown, KY is a great place to stay while you are in the area. Easily fit us, with pull throughs at about 90′ long. Spacious, and easy in and out.
