Food and flying things

Perhaps I have always been observant, but probably not.  On this tour, I seemed to notice more than usual. I tried to eat local thing or items that I had not eaten before (except road kill, I hold the line there).

When I visited Tennessee and Kentucky in August, I was impressed with the number of butterflies.  At that time I saw a lot of all yellow butterflies and some black ones. This time I saw a few Monarchs.

Dave took me to dinner in Reelfoot, and the lake there was created by an earthquake.  In fact, the lake is the only natural lake in the entire state.  Since I missed out on catfish last visit, that’s what I had. I also had frog legs for the first time.

For my last evening in Louisville, KY, we had dinner at a restaurant that overlooked the Ohio River. It was a beautiful location, and the food was great.
