Spring Park

                         I am joining Outdoors Wednesday and Today's Flowers 
                                        when they become available.

                                                    To see more photos, please visit the above memes.

Our day at Spring Park was so pleasant. I had the company of family, the thrill of seeing something new, the day wasn't too terribly hot. It couldn't have been better.

The park is centered by a large pond where swans, ducks and geese abound. 

The waterfall is the tallest man-made fall in the world.

Beautiful magnolias at a nearby restaurant.

A covered bridge to enjoy

A couple of cool looking water wheels.

There's nothing better than to spend time enjoying the out-of-doors with those you love.

Eating Out

You just don't go on trips without trying the restaurants in the area. We ate at three the four days we were in Alabama. We tried out a goodly number, wouldn't you say?

First of all we went to Luvicie's in Athens. We got a table with a window view. Even though it was getting dark outside we wanted to see 'things'. And, the food was great. Would you believe that I was there without my camera? But, my son and I were captured enjoying the time together by someone else's cell phone.

The next day we were off to Big Bob Gibson's Barbeque in Decatur. They've won all sort of awards for their barbeque, even some international ones so naturally we had to try them out. 
It was some kind of good eating!! 

This is my plate of ribs! Okay, my eyes were bigger than my tummy but take-outs are always good.

My son enjoyed his sampler plate.

And, then on Monday we stopped by The Rocking Chair Restaurant in Tuscumbia.

The interior was very nice. A homey, pleasant atmosphere in which to dine.

Again, my son and I enjoyed our meal and time together.

I loved their salt and pepper shaker holders. 

Our view out the window

Yes, we had some great food, some great times together.

An Eye For Sunday

For Sketches and Paint Party Friday I think I will submit this.

I had never tried to draw an eye before. Well, nothing human at all. And, I see my mistakes. Next time will be better..... I hope!!
