(40)TRIP TAKEN JUNE 24, 2008
WELL, WE TOOK BACK TO BACK
VACATIONS. FIRST TO ORANGE
BEACH WITH OUR SON, HIS WIFE
AND SWEET HEART BABY GIR
L. THEN WE WERE HOME FOR A
WEEK. I, ALSO, TAUGHT A CLASS
AT A CHRISTIAN WOMENS
RETREAT THAT FRIDAY OF THE
WEEKEND IN BETWEEN THE TWO
WEEKS. THEN WE TOOK OFF TO
CAVE CITY. WHAT A WONDERFUL,
LAID BACK, UNIQUE, VACATION THIS
WAS. WELL, WE WOUND UP HAVING
TO TAKE A SMOKING ROOM WITH A
JACUZZI TUB. THE TUB WAS NICE
AND BIG. THIS SUITE WAS PET
FRIENDLY SO WE TOOK MEME AND
CECE WITH US. THEY MADE THE TRIP
FINE BUT THEY WERE SO HAPPY
WHEN THEY GOT BACK HOME. WE
WERE DISAPPOINTED WITH OUR ROOM
BECAUSE IT HAD A NON SMOKING
ROOM SIGN ON THE DOOR AND WE
RESERVED A NON-SMOKING SUITE. WE
CHECKED OUT THE OTHER COMFORT
INN DOWN THE STREET BUT THEY WERE
NOT PET FRIENDLY. IT WAS LIKE
SLEEPING IN AN ASHTRAY. WE DID
SURVIVE GLAD TO SAY. WE FIRST WENT
TO THE CORVETTE MUSEUM IN BOWLING
GREEN. LOVED IT! THEN TO MAMMOTH
CAVE AND TOOK THE HISTORIC TOUR. IT
WAS A LITTLE OVER AN HOUR WALK. IT
WAS FUN BECAUSE IT WAS VERY
INTERESTING. WE DID NOT THINK WE
COULD TAKE OUR CAMERA. SO, WE DID
NOT TAKE IT. YOU CAN TAKE A CAMERA
BUT NO CASES OR BACK PACKS. WE DID
GO BACK THE NEXT DAY AND GET A FEW
CLIPS AND PICTURES. WE CHECKED OUT
THE STATE PARK HOTEL. WE DID GET
 SOME INFORMATION. THE HOTEL WAS
REALLY NEAT INSIDE. SORRY TO SAY
THEY HAVE NO SWIMMING POOL. WE
WENT TO THE GIFT SHOP. THEN, WE ATE
AT THE CAFÉ INSIDE THE HOTEL. WE
EVEN ATE A HOMEMADE BOLOGNA AND
CHEESE SANDWICH WITH CHIPS AND
DRINK. THE NEXT THING WE DID WAS TO
FIND SOME SOME TRAILS. WE TOOK TWO
OF THEM. IT WAS ALOT OF WALKING BUT
 IT WAS WORTH IT BECAUSE IT WAS VERY
BEAUTIFUL. THE NEXT DAY WE WENT TO
THE STABLES AND RODE HORSES.
WOULD YOU BELIEVE MY BATTERIES
WERE DEAD IN THE CAMERA...SO WE
WENT TO THE ROOM GOT THE OTHER
BATTERY PACK AND WE BACK AND TOOK
SOME CLIPS AND A FEW PICTURES. THIS
WAS SO MUCH FUN FOR ME. I RODE A
HORSE BACK IN 1967 AND HAVE ALWAYS
WANTED TO RIDE AGAIN. I FINALLY GOT
TO RIDE ONE MORE TIME! ANOTHER DESIRE
OF MY HEART ANSWERED! THANK YOU,
FATHER! THEN LATER THAT AFTERNOON,
WE WENT TO GUN TOWN MOUNTAIN. WE
RODE THE INCLINE UP THE MOUNTAIN. I
HAD AN ICE CREAM AT THE SALOON. WE
SAW A COMEDY ACT AND A CAN CAN
DANCE SHOW. THEY WE NOT DRESSED
DOWN AT ALL. SO, A FAMILY CAN ENJOY
THE SHOW! WE DID TOO! WE SAW A
STAGED GUNFIGHT, AND WATCHED A
COUNTRY WESTERN GROUP PERFORM
IN THE TOWN'S OPRY HOUSE. WE, ALSO,
WERE ABLE TO LOOK INTO THE TOWN'S
BANK, THEIR GENERAL STORE, THE JAIL,
AND WALKED OVER TO THE CEMETERY.
 WE CHECKED OUT THEIR GIFT SHOP,
TOO. THIS WAS REALLY VERY FUN. LATER,
WE ATE AT THE WATER WHEEL
RESTAURANT. THE FOOD WAS
OUTSTANDING AND SO WERE THE
PEOPLE WHO WORKED THERE! WE
WOULD LIKE TO DO THIS, AGAIN. THANK
YOU, LORD FOR SUCH A WONDERFUL
TIME.
