As I recovered from my cold, Rob's put him down for several days. We took one day to drive through Mammoth Cave National Park, but we did not take any cave tours. Neither of us felt up to it. So our time in Kentucky consisted mostly of hanging around the Beast with nothing but the usual suspects (Louis, Brandy and Ollie), our pretty view, Ruby Throated hummingbirds and Camp Kitty to keep us company. For just a moment I thought we had wasted time, but then I remembered that we can always come back and that we were fortunate to have 7 full days of rest in a lovely place. We will return.
Now we are in Milton, West Virginia, for two nights at a KOA. They couldn't have put us any nearer to the freeway if they tried! I don't like the highway noise, but this park is otherwise very nice.
Our next stop is supposed to be Mount Nebo, West Virginia. Rob was meant to paraglide near there, but he just spoke to his contact in the area and found out there is no flying. I did some checking myself in February and I recall information online stating there was flying in the area. Lesson learned. If Rob wants to fly, he's got to make contact and get the scoop before I make reservations. I will no longer do it for him because I'd just be wrong. Sigh. And now he's talking about changing reservations, which could be expensive, rather than just spending the week where we do have reservations. He's concerned there will be nothing to do. There is a lake. I say we rent a canoe and do some paddling.
Here are a few more photos from Kentucky.
