Good Morning Sunshine!!
Happy Thanksgiving!! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Janet, Nick and I went camping at Lake Guntersville State Park in northeast Alabama (about an hour from Huntsville). Janet and Nick have an Aliner camper and it was nice and cozy with the three of us:) After we got to the campground and everything was set up, we had a picnic by the lake and went for a walk. Later in the day we drove into Guntersville and had Thanksgiving dinner at Cracker Barrel. We had turkey and dressing and all the trimmings - and no dishes to wash. You did not hear any complaints from any of us and it was really quite good. Thursday the weather was cloudy and we knew rain was coming that night - and come it did!!! Since we couldn't have a campfire, we stayed inside playing Yahtzee and Phase 10. Janet and I were triumphant that night but Nick paid us back the next night. He was getting Yahtzee's right and left - I think a total of seven in six games or something ridiculous like that.
Friday, we went into town and Janet and I shopped while Nick watched Auburn beat Alabama. Dinner was ready in the crockpot when we got back and then it was time for another round of Yahtzee and Phase 10. Friday night it got into the twenties!!! Thank you Doug for storing your sleeping bag at my house - it was nice and cozy when we ran out of propane at 4:00 a.m.
Breakfast compliments of Chef Nick
Saturday the weather was gorgeous and we were able to eat breakfast outside. We went hiking on the Waterfall Trail but never found a waterfall. After lunch and another round of Phase 10 we headed for home.
Beginning my new life as a "sixty and single" woman started with a "Grand Adventure" of a five month road trip. Included in my travels were a stop in the Grand Canyon, two months in Berkeley, CA, and a ferry ride to Juneau, AK. After my two month Alaskan adventure, I returned on the ferry and visited several more national parks before relocating to Franklin, TN. (its great to have children in fun places) I spent the summer of 2012 working in Yellowstone National Park at Fishing Bridge General Store. Wanderlust has struck!!! I have purchased a Casita 17' Spirit Deluxe travel trailer . . . the adventure continues.
