Murdo Girl…the road trip..heading for Kentucky

Today was moving day. We didn’t have to check out until 2 pm, so we took our time packing up and walking the dogs on the beautiful trail by the Wabash River. 

We finally pulled out of Lafayette about 11:00. Our goal for the day wasn’t that ambitious. We wanted to get as close as we could to the Creation Museum, which is in Petersberg, Kentucky. 


Here are pictures of the beautiful scenery along the way. 

We went by this

And this

And it rained most of the way… like this

As usual, we didn’t plan ahead because we didn’t know exactly what day we would be heading for Kentucky. As soon as we got on the road, I started the hunt.

It took a while, but I found an RV park only ten miles from the museum. I was told we could have the last spot if…we could be there by no later than 5:00. When I asked why, the lady said it was down by the river and someone had to help us, so we had to get there before they closed the office. A little unsettling, but hey…it was closest by far to the museum. I didn’t even ask how much. I already figured it would be high. 

We pulled in at 4:32. This was the 2nd time on this trip we got the last remaining spot for miles.

I was standing beside the RV when I took this picture of the lake. There is a walking trail on the other side.

After such a long hard day, I was still able to muster up the energy to cook. Yes, I said cook. I made dinner from scratch. I used all fresh ingredients and even dirtied two pans. I found a recipe online for french toast and bacon. Come to think of it, bacon might not be considered a fresh ingredient. It was apple smoked, so it must be cured with burning apples which means it has fruit in it, right?

Kip really liked it. He said he especially liked the bread I used.

I even washed the dishes. I’m turning over a new leaf.

So we’re settled in and Kip is paying the bills with a little help from Dollie.

We’re going to the museum tomorrow. It’s a 75,000 square foot museum that’s supposed to bring the Bible to life. It sounds really interesting. I’ll let you know how it goes in my next blog. 

I should find another recipe to cook tomorrow, but I don’t know if I will.

      If you have a Walmart get their Great Value regular sliced apple smoked bacon. It’s delish 07. 🤗
