I have returned from my whirlwind trip to Asheville, NC. We had a terrific time, ate good food, saw lots of sites, took a bazillion pictures, and watched Matthew Crawley from Downton Abbey smash his lovely roadster, wiping his name off of the line-up for next season's episodes. For those of you who are not watching Downton Abbey, (there are probably only about 2 people left who are not) we, who are Downton fans, are now in mourning for the passing of the 2nd member of the Grantham household during this season....which was far too short I might add.
On our way home today, driving very close to Lexington, KY, we took a little detour into horse country, finding rolling hills, beautiful horses, and grand stables and homes. We turned on Crawley Ln., which I thought was quite appropriate in honor of Matthew's passing and found this splendid horse farm....(it was really just pure luck that we happened to turn at this corner and I couldn't resist stopping to get a quick pic)
Isn't this a beauty...and with that Kentucky sky, wowzer.
Here is a close-up of the horse barn....they sure do know how to treat their horses in Kentucky.....the home of fast women and beautiful horses (or so they say).
Linking with Trish's Barn Charm....off to bed now, pretty darn tired after driving back and forth through six states. Will catch up with everyone soon.
Until next time.....
