Happy Fall! Our last few days in the Birmingham area were filled with friends and activities. Carol, our good friend who lives in the area, joined us for several outings. One of them was to her hometown, Sylacauga. There we visited an Amish gift shop owned by a good friend of hers, Debe. We picked up several things that we managed to get out of Indiana without, some homemade Amish noodles and a few other goodies. We ate lunch at a BBQ restaurant, also owned by friends of Carol. Jim and I shared an order of bread pudding that I swear must have been made with donuts, it was so rich.
Last Wednesday it was time to move along, back on I-65 north to Tennessee:
Our travel day was blissfully uneventful! We arrived at Defeated Creek Corps of Engineers (COE) park and found our reserved full hook-up site:
which has a large yard next to the lake:
We’ve been meeting new friends, like Sandy and John:
And catching up with “old” friends, like JoAnn and Doug:
Most of the people who are here in our group have met through the RV-Dreams web site and chatroom, along with Facebook. It was organized by Lisa and her husband, Tony. They live in the area and spend lots of time camping in this beautiful park. Besides the above couples, there are Netters & Mac, Leno & Kevin, Natasha & Boris, Donna & Nolan, Cathy & Chuck, Jenny & Don, and today Cindy & Ken are expected. Did I miss anyone?
And of course, whenever a group of RVer’s gets together, it involves happy hours and food. Mac and Kevin at the grills:
I do have more pictures, but they are on my phone, and it decided to stop communicating with my computer. Yesterday, we had “girls day out” and I stopped in at the Verizon store to see if I could get it looked at. The folks there had no answers, but the phone is under warranty, so they’ve ordered a new one which I’ll get tomorrow afternoon.
I spent one day grooming dogs:
Monday morning several of us went over to the covered picnic pavilion to practice some line dancing. A couple of other women who are just here camping with their families joined us and we had a fun time. We hope to get another session or two in!
Relaxing, visiting, playing, dancing, well you know – someone has to do this, as Jim always says!
