Louisville, Kentucky

by Rosemary West

We made a short stop in Louisville, where we had a great time visiting our friends Johnny and Stephi Wolff.

That weekend, there were a lot of events going on. We went to a couple of art festivals, including a very popular one near the Big Four Bridge. This former railroad bridge across the Ohio River is now a pedestrian and bicycle bridge connecting Louisville to Jeffersonville, Indiana. We walked across and had lunch in Indiana, then walked back.



From the Big Four, you can see the Abraham Lincoln Bridge and the John F. Kennedy Bridge, so close together that from this angle they almost look like a single structure.


We strike a pose.



Paddlewheelers still travel the river.

Louisville is known for its many great restaurants, and that includes terrific places to get breakfast. We didn't photograph our food, but maybe we should have. Eggs Over Frankfort and North End Cafe were two of the breakfast spots we enjoyed. For dinner, the Fat Lamb and Noosh Nosh were completely different in both style and substance, yet both were excellent choices. And who could forget the Red Yeti?

We weren't in Louisville long enough to see and do as much as we would have liked, so we hope to be back soon.
