Scenes from the Ballpark

This past weekend I spent many hours at the ballpark.  This was the view right next door.  



I might explain that it was in Lexington, Kentucky, also known as, "The Horse Capital of the World".  



These views were right outside the ballpark.  The entire city is gorgeous, with horse farms at every turn.  


Our two days of games did not yield a tournament victory for the girls, nor did I have time to visit my favorite bookstore, but the team came together and played better than they have recently.  Getting their confidence back after a recent slump is the real victory.

  8. I'm jealous of such beauty and tranquility!!! Wow. Extraordinary images Michelle.

    By the way, your header? The calf [or is it full grown cow?} peaking through the iron gate/fence is a hoot! Made me giggle.

  10. This looked like such a beautiful area! Those rolling expanse of dark green grass looks so pastoral. We have not had rain in a long while and our hills are turning brown again.

  15. Yeah, I think I'd be watching the horses too. We lived in Mt. Sterling, KY which is 30 miles from Lexington for 11 years. Love those rolling hills, horse fences and KY bluegrass!

  16. Ah, the baseball tournaments! How you brought me back to those days! Sorry they didn't win, but I'm glad they were able to pull together as a team. Those slumps are hard going.

  21. Beautiful country . . .
    A win feels wonderful but playing a good game, without winning, feels good too . . .
    Season finished, now what?

  22. Yes, Lexington is indeed gorgeous. There is a reason they call it bluegrass country.
