56th Day - Run for the Roses

The temperature was in the mid 50s this morning. The temperature later rose to 68F in the afternoon. It was overcast most of the day but the sun did show through on and off on Route 64 through Kentucky.
I really enjoyed visiting Churchill Downs especially the Tour where one can walk out to the racetrack. The track surface is made up of what one calls 'sandy loam' which consists of sand (75%), silt (23%), and clay (2%).
I also thought the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory Tour was interesting. At the end of the Tour a Mini-Bat was given out. Zachary are you listening?
The plan is to visit a Glass Factory and Harpers Ferry tomorrow.
In the meanwhile its time for some shut eye!
