Day 279: Florence


Not sure why I put off driving past Florence, Kentucky for so long. What a treat! Apparently this water tower addage is a huge embarrassment to the residents of Florence. To me, it just reflects the our old state catch phrase,”Kentucky. We’re just that friendly.” A little creepy and a whole lotta southern.

I must say that Unbridled Spirit is a little bit cooler for a state that is known for its horses and racing. Outside of the U.S. do they know us for our horses, corevettes, and bourbon? Doubtful.

My brief conversations in Costa Rica often included the response, “oh! Kentucky Fried Chicken!” Thanks, Colonel.
I need to visit the home of the first KFC someday. Corbin, KY, for those of you who are interested.
