Yesterday was a perfect day for a walk through the campground –
Want to come along?
This is a pretty full service campground – it even has its own wedding chapel!
But of course, its real claim to fame is the Noccalula Falls –
Even though the falls were a little wimpy today, there is a local legend that goes along with the falls which involves an Indian Princess (Noccalula, of course), a forbidden love and a leap to her death to thwart an unwanted marriage.
Whether or not the legend is true (or just a late 19th century marketing tool), the area is quite lovely.
And when there’s a bit more water – the falls are pretty impressive too!
(Photo borrowed from HERE, where there is also more info about the legend (or not)!)
Even walking back along the highway enabled a beautiful view –
We did have one small mystery. See the ducks along the shore?
Here – a bit closer…..
I couldn’t find these guys in our bird book, and the closest thing I could find online is a Muscovy duck. What do you think? Any other suggestions? I just love a good mystery bird!
Thanks for coming along for the walk. =) Today we moved into our November project and are getting settled in at Eagle Rock Boys Ranch. I’m a little concerned that there is a freeze warning tonight – but surely this is just a temporary cool down, right? After all, we’re in Alabama, right? Right?????
