Day 59 New Harmony, IN to Kenlake State Park, KY

The day began with breakfast outside at the Red Germanium with Connie, the Director of Historic New Harmony, a department of the Southern Indiana University. Her group is responsible for managing nearly all the historic properties in New Harmony. Connie is an expert on the history of New Harmony and gave us an excellent tour.

New Harmony is one of the best kept secrets in the USA and just a fascinating town to visit. The photo shows the Labyrinth designed for meditation. I had to climb to the roof of the View to get this shot.  A labryinth is not a maze.

A class from the Owen School of Business at Vanderbilt was spending a week in the town. I spotted the Dean of that school and spent a few minutes with him. It seems they have been coming here for several years.

At noon we left for Poseyville. Boating friends operate the General Store in this small town. It was like a Wal-mart squeezed into a smaller space. Unlike Wal-mart we could get real milkshakes made the old way in a 100 year old soda fountain.

We crossed our “wake” at Cadiz Kentucky and got to the marina at 5:00PM. We will spend our last night at the campground and the weekend on the Katy Leigh.
