In my head we would get up nice and early and drive to Bowling Green but I think the cold was making for some very tired girls and they didn't wake up until 10. The idea of a vacay is to rest and relax so I wasn't about to shake them awake and hurry them along.
Once the girls were up we headed to parts unknown. I just plug an address or area into Waze and off we go. We exited the highway and within feet of where we got off was, Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby. I was flabbergasted and obviously quite impressed by the sight in front of me however it came as such a surprise that I failed to take even ONE photo. Duh. It's quite a magnificent place.
Our destination was Bowling Green. Why? I have no idea other than it was the closest big city to where we were. Turns out there was lots to do so after lunch we headed to Lost River Caves. BUT IT WAS SUPER COLD. I like cold weather but I couldn't keep my hands warm, turns out I completely forgot to take handwarmers and didn't even realise until we got home. We braved it for a while as it was gorgeous and the gift shop there was outstanding.
