I said goodbye to my Aunt this morning and headed to southern IN / northern KY to spend the night.
I was thankful for it being Sunday with no traffic as I drove around Chicago.
There is a whole section in western/central IN where there are many windmills.
I was doing well on time and I decided to stop at Tera Haute, IN to play disc golf.
Last year I played this same course. I liked it and figured I would try it again. The only thing is today it's very windy.
Not on this hole, but another, I was working on getting par on a basket. I laid up to the baskets with two throws, leaving 30 ft left to put.
I don't often make a 30 ft putt, and with the wind, it was doubtful that I would make it. I waited and a long time for the wind to subside. After a minute or two I had a small lull in the wind and took the putt.
I made the basket and then I heard clapping and I turned to an audience at some distance giving approval for my putt.
This group consisted of 6 disc golf players heading in the opposite direction that had paused to watch me play. I now had a first in my disc golf career.
Before dark I headed to downtown Henderson, KY to see what it looked like along the Ohio River. Above is a picture of a train bridge.
This plaque commemorates Lewis and Clark passing through on their way to explore the the Pacific Northwest.
The town isn't too interesting, although of a good size and the parks along the river were minimal. In comparison, up stream is the town of Owensboro, KY that I visited last year and enjoyed more with a beautiful boardwalk with a lot of people out on weekends.
