We left Texas and stopped in Arkansas. Went to the "Crater of Diamonds State Park". Didn't find any diamonds, not even a tiny one. But we had a nice day.
|Ed sat in one place and sifted through|
|I walked around looking for something to shine but never |
|We were ready to go, we stayed about 5 hours.|
Than we headed to Tennessee to meet up with the kids for a 10 day stay. Stayed at Natchez Trace a Thousand Trails Park. The kids stayed in one of the cabins. We had a great time and even got to experience a flash flood.
|The kids cabin|
|When we were ready to leave we parked on the beach for the night.|
That was the beach next to us which was flooded.
|At the end of this path was a dock.|
|Hey Tracy look out for that tree!|
|Crossing the creek. It was fun driving thru the water.|
|Two of our beautiful granddaughters|
|Our camping spot next to the cows.|
|Two of our neighbors|
|Just had to show this. Ed was sharing his chip dip with|
Calypso. He told her to dip her chip and she stuck
her whole hand down in the dip. Not one of his better ideas.
|Nice fairgrounds. We almost have the place to ourselves but people |
are starting to come in
|Beautiful Park and it was free.|
|Hard to believe this is downtown Sioux Falls|
|This park has a lot of Jasper rock, which is harder that granite.|
|This was once a 7 story mill, the power came|
from the falls
|You can go up in the tower and look out over the whole area.|
|Just having a good time|
|They had a pretty good crowd, but not overwhelming|
|One of the balloons laid out|
|Balloon being blown up. When they blow them up they tether them|
to a trailer or a truck so they can't take off.
|Most of them only had one or two people in them. This one was|
a little more crowded. The guy on the right looks like he is
sitting on the edge. Ed said that looked dangerous.
|They brought the balloons back to the area and had a balloon glow.|
|I liked this one, Ed said he thought it was gaudy.|
|Trying to get as many balloons in the picture as I can.|
They had 25 balloons.
|The balloons getting ready to light up.|
|Balloon glow, They try to light them up all at the same time.|
Happy Trails. Ed and Lyn
