Wow – I can’t believe all the things I’ve wanted to write about, but somehow haven’t made the time. Here’s a brief catch-up!
Life quieted down at Camp Overton. After the Junior Campers (and crew – about 140 total) left on Thursday, we all took a deep breath and relaxed. We had a nice adults only dinner on the deck that evening and posed for our group picture. Since Gary & I were the only Sowers on the project, we decided that Reba and kids were really our “group” – so here we all are (shadows and all!)
It was wonderful working (and playing) with these folks. After dinner we played some wild dominoes – here are some silly shots from that….
Saturday we saw the sights of McMinnville. Ok, so it included a fabric store and Lowes, it still was a day out. We checked out Falcon Rest, “the Biltmore of Tennessee” (that was kind of a stretch), took a long detour around a factory that was burning (pretty drive – just wish I knew where we were!), and played with our new toy (a handheld GPS) and our new hobby – Geo Caching. “Geocaching is an outdoor treasure-hunting game in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers (called “geocaches” or “caches”) anywhere in the world. A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook and “treasure,” usually toys or trinkets of little monetary value.” More on the geocaching later – we had fun getting started with it and I can just hope that we get better the more we do it. I have some great pictures that I haven’t had a chance to up load yet, but I’ll get to that soon (promise).
Right now we are at the Highland Inn in Pulaski, TN (south central TN). We’ve taken a couple days “off” and are driving around this beautiful state seeing what there is to see. Mostly we have been reminded that lots of local points of interested are CLOSED ON MONDAYS!!! Grrrrrr…… But tomorrow is Tuesday, so I trust we’ll have better luck. Why, right here in Pulaski is the Sam Davis Monument, doncha know! (I’ll figure out who he is tomorrow too!) But I am enjoying the free WiFi!!!
I took lots of pictures today – but I’ll leave you with just one. It’s from Falls Mill in Belvidere, TN (they’re closed on Wednesdays!).
It was a good day.
