Yesterday was our 49th wedding anniversary. John has been my best friend and the love of my life for 49 and a half years—since I proposed to John in October 1964. We have had a wonderful life so far with adventures and challenges and incredible opportunities. We look forward to the future and continuing to grow old together.
We didn’t go out to dinner or do anything special. We did exactly what we wanted to do—relax in a great Corps of Engineers campground and cook a steak dinner and twice-baked potatoes.
We had been so busy sightseeing in Memphis and Nashville, we came here for five days to be quiet and relax. We are also getting caught up on a few things. I had planned to get a little more caught up, but our Verizon broadband is slow to nonexistent.
We have seen lots of birds, including blue jays, cardinals, a black vulture, ducks and a blue heron. As the heron flew off, I at least caught its reflection on Cordell Hull Lake.
This cardinal was fighting with its reflection in a hub cap.
We have also seen deer, ground hogs, a turtle and lots of rabbits and squirrels.
Debra, a COE volunteer, is parked a couple of sites down the road. She and her dog Gracie came to visit one morning.
We have had fog and rain, as well as sunshine since we came here. I can take reflection pictures forever. I hope you enjoy these views of the campground and lake.
