We spent Memorial Day Weekend relaxing with the dogs at Nolin Lake State Park — just grillin’ and chillin’…
Also, fancy bugs.
Overall, we found Louisville to be a hip and stylish city — full of surprises. The people were especially friendly and the food (and craft beer!) was absolutely fabulous.
On our first morning in Louisville, we enjoyed a fantastic brunch at 21c. It’s a restaurant, hotel, and art gallery all rolled into one and we were thrilled at the amount of diverse, high-quality work we found.
Later we hit the “Buy Local” fair. It was unusually hot, but there was cold beer, plenty of shade, and … LIVE BLUEGRASS!
And suddenly it happens. You’re all loaded up and ready to go.
After a cozy dinner on the porch of course. (Gotta eat, right?)
Then it’s time to put someone in charge of navigation and decide where you’re headed.
To escape the freeze-melt-freeze-melt fun of April in New England, myself, Alison, and Sharon decided to spend a few days exploring Amsterdam! We made so many amazing memories that I’ll need to share the highlights in multiple installments.
Ons’ Lieve Heer op Solder is a Catholic Church was built on the top three floors of a canal house during the 1660s. At that time, it was prohibited to celebrate mass, so churches like this had to remain a secret.
To do this, they cut a large hole in the top three floors and supported the gap with iron bars.
While a bit strange, the invention and beauty found in the details are quite astounding.
