Oldham and Henry Counties
This weekend was amazing. As our first real trip, we wanted to try close to home (Louisville), so we went with Oldham and Henry Counties. Even though both counties are close to Louisville, I had not spent any time in either. In Oldham, we visited Yew Dell Botanical Gardens, Fox Hollow Farm and attempted to visit Westport General Store (closed). Since the General Store is now closed, we went across the street to Knock on Wood instead for lunch. In Henry, we visited Smith-Berry Winery, Main Street and downtown Eminence.
As our first leg, this was a great one. We met some wonderful people, got to roam through a vineyard that was a tobacco farm prior to the government buyout, see a tractor put a boat in the Ohio, eat lunch in a place that looked untouched since the 50s (best benedictine and bacon sandwich I have had in a while), visit a botanical garden (bullfrogs are super loud) and visit a farm that is covered in stone sculptures (got attacked by a duck there, not the friendliest creatures). It was crazy and I honestly cannot stop talking about it. Coming back to work was hard.
