....Sunday, 12/21/08 was our anniversary and we took a drive through Scott County, KY to view the Buffalo Gals Barn Quilt Trail. We stopped in Shelbyville to have lunch at the Claudia Sanders Inn, the restaurant of the wife of Cournal Harlan Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame. The food is a wonderful spread of homestyle, country cooking.
...We saw maybe half of barn quilts as we left too late in the day to complete the entire trail. It is about a 1 hour drive from Louisville so we hope to do it again before long and see the rest of them. I took photos of some of the quilts but the weather was terrible and they did not come out well. The skies were overcast and the temperature was in the teens with a 20 mph wind chill around -2*, so getting out of the van to take photos was avoided as much as possible and trying to steady myself in the wind was completely impossible. I should have taken a tripod but I forgot it. Oh well... next time!
