Memorial Day Drive through Southern Indiana

Margot and I and the dog took a drive through Southern Indiana and a bit of Northern Kentucky this afternoon.

Came across the Lincoln boyhood home national monument. Looks interesting. We'll go back with visitors some day when it isn't raining.

I thought this barn was interesting. It is just down the road from where Lincoln won his first court case. He was defending himself against a charge of operating an illegal ferry across the Ohio River. The barn is in Kentucky.

Lots of thistle in Kentucky.

It is pretty despite being a pretty noxious weed.

We came across this scene at the Perry County Courthouse in Tell City, Indiana.

The sun came out for a few minutes.

Albert Hemphill gave his life in the Spanish American war.

Seems like a lot of crosses for such a small county.

I didn't have a chance to talk with this woman. We were discussing Memorial Day with another visitor at the time. I wonder who she thinking about.

Another view.
