I was happy to have my son, Jaffe Worley, visit this past weekend. He generally lives in Seattle but is in Madison, WI for a while so it was fairly easy for him to make the trip to visit. He hasn’t been to Louisville for nearly 15 years.
We took in the sites of Louisville and he attended a Louisville men’s basketball game with me. (My thanks to Lyndsey Gough of Spectrum News and Eric Crawford of WDRB for adjusting their seating so Jaffe could sit with me on press row for the game.)
On Monday, we took in the Big Four bridge and walked around downtown. As usual, I took several photos of ‘people being themselves’ in those locations. We are currently experiencing some flooding of the Ohio River, so I took a few shots of the high water marks.
Of course, we couldn’t leave out one of Kentucky’s signature products — Bourbon. Heaven Hill Distillery operates a small distillery in downtown Louisville called the Evan Williams Experience. It is named for Evan Williams, the first commercial distiller in Kentucky and one-time wharf master of Louisville. (Evan Williams is also a bourbon label for Heaven Hill.) I posted a few photos of the tour in the photo galleries.
Jaffe’s timing for a visit was great in that the weather was very nice. Lately, it’s been unseasonably cold in Louisville, which has hampered my photographic efforts. So all-in-all, it was a great four days.
