We didn't believe them. We drove the hour and a half and what do you know, the park was closed. So, we went to eat lunch instead. We went to Smokin' Joe's Rib Ranch. It was a very popular place as well. It was ok but I think it could have been better. It was an interesting site though as there was also an RV park attached.
Anyway, it was a lovely drive up Hwy.77, through the small towns from here to there, and I did take some photos so I thought I would share.
Welcome to our Saturday!
|Wind turbines were everywhere and they were scary! Very futuristic looking and not in a good way|
|Taken from the car -- lots of people enjoying the water -- I wouldn't have gotten in it|
|more swimmers with a very tall slide -- must have been scary because everybody who went down it screamed|
|hills in the area|
|This is a two meat plate for one person -- it could have fed four|
|This was on the ceiling. Even the dog. Click on it and you will see the dog. I thought it rather odd|
|Water feature in the garden of the restaurant|
|isn't this the most perfect Christmas tree -- I am sure they decorate it for Christmas|
|cute little gift shop|
|this little fella guards the door of the gift shop -- isn't he cute?|
