The more clients David welcomes into his “financial care,” the more friendly acquaintances we come across out about everywhere in Campbellsville. Alas, on weekends, David, being an introvert, needs space from all the people he deals with during the work week. To avoid running into acquaintances, we thus can stay home for the entire weekend or go out of town. We do choose to stay home and withdraw from the world on many weekends for the wonderful purpose of recharging. However, we also take many excursions to Louisville to eat ethnic cuisines (Vietnamese, Thai, French, Mediterranean, Cuban, etc.), sightsee, enjoy nature and attend events and activities not available in a small town such as the theatre, the orchestra and sport games.
Here are some of our recent activities in Louisville.
Big Four pedestrian bridge
This is an old railroad bridge spanning the Ohio river connecting Louisville, KY, and Jeffersonville, IN. People come here for a nice view of downtown Louisville, a leisurely stroll or to bike. It was completed in 1895, updated in 1929, taken out of rail service in 1968, and converted to bicycle and pedestrian use in 2014. It was named after the “Big Four Railroad” — nickname of the defunct Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis Railway.
During the day, pedestrians enjoy hearing classical music the entire time they are on the bridge. At nighttime, Big Four glows with many colorful lights. I took these photos from various sources on the Internet.
Bernheim Research Forest
We were happy to finally be able to come back here to take a long walk around and look at everything. It was closed throughout last year due to COVID.

Our first football (soccer) game ever at Lynn Family Stadium
We were very excited to be attending a football match live in a stadium. We have recently watched several highlights of the past and current activities of the US Women National Soccer Team as well as highlights of World Cup qualifying matches in Europe and the American continent. We look forward to the next FIFA World Cup taking place next year in 2022 in Qatar. James brings a soccer ball with him to school everyday to play with other boys during recess. At home, David, Jacob and James sometimes play football together in our backyard.
In this match, Louisville FC played against New Mexico for a spot in the playoff of the National Championship. Louisville won 3-1. Louisville FC has been national champion for 2 consecutive years.
Thank you for reading! Until next time.
