USA Trip 2022

Friday, 23 September 2022

Today was a full day–not planned that way but turning out that way. I am staying with my cousins Julie and Eric, and first thing this morning Eric and I rode ebikes over to the local Kroger store to pick up a few items. We rode through beautiful neighborhoods in the Highlands.
Later in the morning, to demonstrate the ebikes to me even more, Eric led me on a longer ride to downtown Louisville and across the old Big Four Bridge, now a pedestrian only bridge, to Jeffersonville, Indiana.
Our destination was the Schimff’s candy store, described as the oldest family-owned candy store in the United States. They had an amazing array of chocolates and other candies, and then they also had this candy-making museum (photo above) displaying old candies and packaging and candy-making machines.
Later in the day Moya and John Dittmeier (seated next to Eric) flew in from Maryland and had supper with us and with Julie and Eric’s daughter Elsa and son-in-law Will and their daughter Poppy.

A great day!
