Where I stayed
JOE WHEELER STATE PARK RESORT

Flag of United States  , Alabama
Thursday, September 8, 2005

WELL, WE MADE IT TO THIRTY-ONE YEARS OF
MARRIAGE. PTL! WE ALWAYS TOOK THE ONE
VACATION TO THE BEACH EVERY YEAR AND
THEN SOME SHORT TRIPS.  THESE TRIPS 
WITH THE KIDS WERE (MAINLY TO ZOO'S:
OPRYLAND AND SIX FLAGS.WE WERE NEVER
AWAY FROM OUR CHILDREN.. THEN AFTER
SEVENTEEN YEARS OF MARRIAGE WE TOOK
A FEW DAYS TO GULF SHORES FOR A BADLY
NEEDED SECOND HONEYMOON IN 1991. WHEN
OUR SON WAS EIGHTEEN YEARS OLD WE
STARTED TAKING SHORT TRIPS. SO, WE BEGAN
MAKING UP FOR LOST TIME OF BEING TOGETHER! 
.IT HAS MADE OUR LIVES TOGETHER, NOW ...
SWEETER!   THIS IS OUR FIRST TRIP TOO TRY
THIS CATFISH PLACE WE HAD SEEN ON OUR
PREVIOUS TRIPS TO JOE WHEELER BEFORE
GOING TO THE SUITE. THE CATFISH REALLY WAS
GOOD AND HIT THE SPOT! WE DID NOT WANT TO
BE SO FULL WE COULD NOT ENJOY...YOU
GUESSED IT! PORK SKINS AND OUR BIG BLOCKS!
ALSO, THIS TRIP TO JOE WHEELER WE RESERVED
THE JUNIOR SUITE. IT HAS A SEPARATE SMALL
KITCHEN AND DINING AREA. THE SUITE WAS BIGGER
THAN I HAD EXPECTED. A NEAT SURPRISE! THE
DOUBLE BED(2)WE SLEPT ON WAS PRETTY
COMFORTABLE. THE BALCONY IS GOOD SIZED AND
HAS TWO ROCKING CHAIRS. WE COULD HEAR THE
RIPPLING OF THE WATER AT THE WATER'S EDGE.
WE COULD HEAR GEESE, DUCKS, AND SEAGULLS.
WE EVEN SAW A COUPLE OF FISH JUMP UP AND
BACK INTO THE WATER...ALL FROM OUR BALCONY.
WONDERFUL UNIQUE SOUNDS AND SIGHTS ALL DUE
TO THIS LODGE BEING BY THE LAKE SURROUNDED
BY WOODS. THE SWIMMING POOL WAS STILL OPEN,
TOO. WE TOOK THE TRAIL AFTER GETTING SETTLED
IN. WE ENJOYED THE WALK TOGETHER. I MADE
MEMORIES ON THIS TRIP! I TRIPPED, FELL AND THEN
BEGAN SLIDING DOWN HILL. THE ONLY THING
WOUNDED WAS MY PRIDE...BUT IT DID SCARE ME, A
LITTLE...A LOT! WE, ALSO, ATE BREAKFAST IN AT
THE LODGE. IT WAS GOOD TOO! THE BREAKFAST
BUFFET IS ALWAYS GOOD. THE STAFF AT THE
LODGE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN VERY PLEASANT. THIS
TRIP WE SPENT TIME JUST CHECKING OUT THE
WHOLE RESORT. THEN AS ALWAYS WE PLAYED
RUMMY WHILE WE THE SNACKS. HUBBY, ALWAYS,
SAYS HE LETS ME WIN BUT I DO SURPRISE, EVEN,
HIM...BY BEATING HIS SOCKS OFF (JUST A SAYING,
OF COURSE)! WE REALLY HAD A WONDERFUL TIME
TOGETHER! IT WAS NICE JUST TO KICK OFF YOUR
SHOES AND SIT A SPELL; TAKING IT ALL IN...
ESPECIALLY AFTER TAKING THE TRAIL! WE WOKE
UP TO 31 YEARS OF MARRIAGE!! THANK YOU LORD
FOR EVERYTHING!
