Journaling: Lexington to Memphis **

On the tenth (October) we bade farewell to our hosts and proceeded in a northwesterly direction to New Albany, Indiana for a visit with Mark and Patty.   Since we knew they would not yet be home when we arrived in town, (would I ever admit I took a wrong turn and wound up on a road to the top from which there was no turning around?) we drove up and over and down Floyds Knobs. a series of beautiful wooded hills overlooking the Ohio River and the cities of New Albany, Clarksville and Louisville.  The summit area is agricultural with truck farms, orchards, and vineyards.

During our visit Craig and Kim with their three girls, Elizabeth, Jennifer, and Anna arrived for the Harvest Homecoming festivities, an event which, I understand, Kim will not miss.  It was good to see them again, albeit briefly.

Upon leaving New Albany, we chose to drive to Memphis via the Kentucky Parkway system to the southwest.  We had never used this route before.  "Bucolic" is a word that springs to mind, but very scenic through the hill, the trees in fall foliage.  We stayed at a state park in the corner of Kentucky and found it to be a very pleasant camping experience.  We arrived in Collierville, Tennessee and found Doug, Joanie and Suzanne awaiting us.  We had a very pleasant visit.

Suzanne and Cookie get acquainted.
