What a Difference a Day Makes

Monaco, Cherokee Landing Thousand Trails, Saulsbury TN

Wednesday Morning – Saulsbury TN

AAA RV Park - Union City TN - Passport America

Wednesday Afternoon – AAA RV Park - Union City TN

it may not be much to look at but it has ALL the goods. . .

awesome 50 amp service, great water pressure. . .

and best of all. . .sewer hookups. . .yaaa!

and all at Passport America rates of $16 per night. . .

very, very pleased!


PVs Hut Hamburger Place, Union City TN, Larry and Donna Mullins

as soon as we were set up. . .Donna and Larry picked us up,

and took us to PV’s HUT. . .again. . .not much to look at,

but a really, really great burger. . .diner style!

and a slice of homemade lemon icebox pie. . .yum!

known for it's Cypress Trees and knees - Reelfoot Lake - Tennessee -

later Wednesday me made a trip out to see Reelfoot Lake. . .

a Cypress Lake and Swamp. . .much like our area of the country. . .

only with semi-clear water instead of the muddy brown stuff we know and love.

Barn Owl - in for rehabilitation - Reelfoot Lake - Tennessee -Bald Eagle - being rehabilitated - Reelfoot Lake - Tennessee -

my pics really don’t do justice to the lovely park

and boardwalk area where we we walked out to view the lake.

There was also a rehab center for injured birds of the area. . .

this Barn Owl was having an absolute fit. . .hissing and carrying on. . .

very dramatic and traumatized. . . I’m not sure it should really

be out where it can be harrassed by the public. . .

not that anyone was bothering it,

but it’s cage was entirely too close to all the foot traffic. . .

Prothonotary Warbler - page 346 - totally a guess? Reelfoot Lake - Tennessee -

and check out this beauty I photographed out over the swamp. . .

I’m thinking it MIGHT BE a warbler. . .

but it’s really difficult to determine without seeing it’s markings. . .

it’s gorgeous though!

Donna and Larry Mullins - took us out for dinner - Lakeside Restaurant - Reelfoot Lake TN

and of course. . .there must be more food.

a delicious Catfish Supper treat by Donna and Larry. . .

I repeatedly requested a Hummer for our tow vehicle. . .

and that Donna. . .she’s a laugh a minute. . .

she and Dave make quite the pair!

She decided she simply MUST experience this two story slide. . .

she was thinking it was just the normal, run of the mill

slide you find in the park. . .ha ha. . .NOT SO!

She came out of there like a bullet. . .HILARIOUS!

We’ve had such a great time here in Union City

with Donna and Larry. . .

 

 

Will always be looking forward to

each and every time our paths cross. . .

 

Headed to Kentucky on Saturday morning. . .

‘til then,

Janice and Dave
