Great article on Colonel Sanders and the Colonel Sanders Museum with information on how he originally started the restaurant and what it’s like to tour the museum.
Great post about the Ark Encounter and Williamstown, Kentucky.
How apt that thunderstorms were forecast this morning as we made our way to Williamstown, Kentucky to visit Ark Encounter, a life-size Noah’s Ark. Locals tell us it’s the most rain they’ve had in ages and we kept rain gear on all day.
Only open for 2 months we were impressed how organized the whole property is from the acres of parking to the efficient people mover buses that leave every few moments. I heard a little boy say “wow” when the Ark came into view.
For the loggers in our lives the Ark was made with 3.1 million board feet of timber and is the biggest timber frame structure in the world. At 510 feet long, 85 feet wide and 51 feet high it’s HUGE !!
A staff member told us it cost $100 million to build and can hold up to 10,000 guests at a time.

On Saturday night, the staff of Everything Kentucky ventured out in to the country….Horse Country to visit a cute, quaint little restaurant called the Windy Corner. This little country store and restaurant certainly lived up to its reputation. We’ve only ever heard good things about this place and it certainly didn’t disappoint.
When you walk in this place, country living is the immediate feel. From Kentucky Pride goodies for sale all around to the hustle and bustle of the filled tables of people eating good food and enjoying a wonderful Saturday evening, this place has a little bit of everything.
This little joint offers a wonderful menu and their dinner specials are very unique. I had the Shrimp and Grits and it was to die for. Seriously, some of the best shrimp and grits I have ever had and my family knows grits, honey!
Cons: The only thing that I didn’t like is you walk up and order. I’ve never been a fan of ordering and then sitting down. The line was huge and you always have this one annoying person that has stood in line for 20 minutes, finally makes it to the cash register to order and STILL has no clue what they want. COME ON! This is just my preference and not a deal breaker by any means!
Definitely want t to try their breakfast, it looks really good! We will for sure be back!!
