    We took a short trip (1 hr 20 min away) to <a href="http://parks.ky.gov/findparks/histparks/wh/">White Hall</a>, <a href="http://parks.ky.gov/findparks/recparks/fb/">Fort Boonesborough</a> and <a href="http://www.hallsontheriver.com/">Hall's on the River</a>. The history of these places can be found on the linked web sites. Basically, all important Kentucky landmarks.

    Panasonic G2 with 14-42 kit lens. I wish the lighting wasn't so harsh, but overall it didn't turn out so bad. I think the G2 will be a nice vacation camera :)

    Now for the photos!...

    WHITE HALL
    Unfortunately, they don't allow photos of the inside of the house. That's a shame because the inside was the best part!

    Allan got hot and tired of waiting for the inside tour.

    Very nice. The site pix look like they came right off the pages of a travel brochure for the site.

    Some nice pics (particularly the candles and shots inside the log building), but I think the one of Allan crashing on the fancy white seat is the best!

    An interesting and colourful set and as an Aussie I hate to admit we grew up with Daniel Boone too. We are getting over our 'cultural cringe' and today's kids know more about Ned Kelly (Ned Kelly - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) than Daniel Boone.

    Thanks everyone :)

    Ned Kelly....hmmm....never heard of him. Looked at the wiki entry for him - interesting character. So how do people view him now? Hero or villain? From what I gather from wikipedia entry, he was a troublemaker to the English authorities? And at this time, this was a time when Australia was still under English rule? Sorry, I don't have my history down too well for Australia. I do know though, Australia is one the top places I want to visit when we have the time and money. New Zealand too (I.E. Middle Earth).
