We continued South toward Louisville, Kentucky where we planned on stopping to see Churchill Downs. They had just had a massive amount of rain in Louisville which caused a lot of water damage to the Museum at Churchill Downs. We didn’t know what to expect but we were excited to pull up and see the complex just as it appeared on TV. The museum had several vans out front to help with the water damage, and the Museum was closed.
We took some photos out front then headed to Gate 17 to find the gift shop. We try to pick up a Christmas Ornament on each trip we take an had been slacking so far on this trip so now was our chance. The problem was that there was an entrance fee to get into the gift shop. That’s not very smart, who wants to pay just to see if there is anything in the shop worth buying? Looks like the photos will have to do, back on the road.
The National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky was our next stop.
Warren has a ’67 and this was his pick for a place to stop on this section of the trip. The museum was not dog friendly so I volunteered to wait with them in the car. (Actually I wanted a nap) So while Sandra and Warren took the tour and got to see the history of the Corvette, I caught some z’s.
When their tour was over Sandra had me run in to see the Corvette nursery. This was where people had ordered their corvettes and the cars were waiting behind a rope for their owners to come pick them up. Each car had a sign next to it with the name of it’s owner and the date they were coming to pick it up. It was a cool way to present the cars and they all looked fantastic.
