Mar. 2 - 5, 2010 --- On the 2nd Carol & Allen drove to Columbus, MS and spent the night on the "Dream Manor". The boat looked a little lonesome when we first arrived. It was great to spend time checking things to make sure there were no winter problems. Everything was just fine except for the cold. Temperature in the mid 30's made a person wish for a warmer climate!
On the 3rd Carol & I made a final inspection and continued on our journey. Not being in a real hurry we spent the night in Goodlettsville, TN. That is a little ways north of Nashville. Crossing the Cumberland River in the car certainly had seemed different looking toward the dowtown area of Nashville where we enjoyed much of last summer living on the boat.
On the 4th we arrived in Louisville, KY and checked in at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Located across from the entrance to the Fair Grounds will make it convenient to walk to the "National Houseboat Expo".
First day of the boat show was the 5th. Doors did not open until 2:00 p.m. so there was time to look around downtown Louisville.
Carol is standing in front of The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts. Watching a film on the history of Kentucky was very enjoyable. It was nicely done presenting pioneer days, Statehood and up through the present. Discussed industry, entertainment, beauty of the land and spirit of the people.

Parking near the Ohio river gave a view of the water and a contrast of old buildings versus the newer and taller ones in the background.
