Leisure in Lexington KY

McConnell Park Hike and Bird Watching Event

After celebrating Mother’s Day with Julie and family by volunteering at Humble Design/Chicago, we drove down to Lexington, Kentucky for a change of scenery and some warmth. It’s the home of the University of Kentucky. Lodging here is very reasonable and we are staying at a motel that is right in town. There’s a delicious Indian Restaurant in town. We read about the McConnell Park Bird Program and decided to begin our adventure there. Here are some pictures of the Owls at the Bluegrass Birding Festival. These owls have been wounded and that is why they are out of their natural habitat.

Visit the many restaurants and coffee houses downtown. Have fun taking pictures at the Village Idiot restaurant, but the food was marginal.

It’s not ever day that I have an owl on my shoulder. Hoo would have guessed.
Visit the Kentucky Home Park and Museum. They have an interesting store, too.
Have fun taking a crazy picture at The Village Idiot Restaurant but the food was not great.
