After Houston we set our sights on Lake Lurleen State Park in Alabama to meet up there with Steve and Cher, friends from Texas. From her Facebook we realized we were close and decided to get together. The lake is named after Lurleen Wallace. We fueled up on the way.
Layered sky at the truck stop and somebody stole my seat!
The weather had turned cool and rainy so we enjoyed catching up over Mexican food and margaritas. We planned three nights at Lake Lurleen and the second day was cool and rainy too. We took the kitties out; they loved our site right off the lake. A walk was cut short by rain but we read our books and enjoyed the day. We all had Happy Hour in the bus that night.
Our site on the lake. Cher and Steve had a great lakefront site with room for their new (to them) canoe that Jim helped them rivet before we all left. We got to paddle all around the lake when the weather turned nice. Cher’s dad is in hospice care at the VA hospital and that takes up part of her day. She also keeps up her 10,000 steps a day; has now for over 450 consecutive days! Quite an accomplishment.
180 and 360 degree panoramas from the canoe.
Cher planned a cookout for Saturday and the weather cooperated. We celebrated the 11th birthday of their motorhome with delicious steaks, potatoes, corn on the cob and her perfected Brussels Sprout and kale salad. We put together a campfire to take the chill off the evening air and had a great visit.
Playing around with wide angle lens and selfie stick. Need to work on that.
After a stop to buy some steaks at Winn Dixie, recommended by Cher, we plan to spend a couple of nights at the Elks Lodge in Childersburg, Alabama and try to figure out where the heck we are going next! We have ridden all the bike trails of any length in this area and need to spend a day or so finding some new ones.
