We have just entered Kentucky – another new state – but we may regret it. We have booked into a very cheap lodge in a beautiful State Park but it appears that alcohol is not available, even with meals. Gwen is in particular need, in order to recover from the excitement of seeing our first snake of the trip. In the words of a passing dog-walker it was “only a rat snake” but Gwen does not appear to be convinced that this is a strong recommendation. However there is also a profusion of woodpeckers here, and they don’t seem to mind showing themselves, so our wildlife quotient is quite high.
Tomorrow we drop the car in St Louis and begin the public transport phase, so we have to pack everything away, a discipline I could do without.
