Sorry I'm so late getting this posted. All my photos from our Trip to Brown Co, were deleted so I had to reload them and edit the ones I wanted. That takes such a long time, as I realize fellow bloggers know all to well. But it is worth it and oh so much fun to see the pictures that you get. I am sure glad I don't have to take them to a store to be developed, I don't think I could stand the wait. And then I remember throwing half of them away because they were no good. Whew....the good ole' days were not always so good. However, I do realize that some people still like the film style photos, right Gyspy? I think that is good keeping the old along with the new. Well I don't have as many 'shopping' photos today because after we left Nashville we went into Brown Co. State Park. These little yard flags were for sale everywhere you looked. I thought this one was cute...however, if you buy it here you can expect to pay more. They really jack up the prices here, probably because it is a big tourist town.

This was all we bought except for the taffy and almonds. I love moose and so when I saw these socks, I just had to have them. They were only $2 can't beat that sale. I went into a yarn shop, as I crochet, and this yarn just jumped off the shelf at me. I bought a new coat in August at the State Fair. It was on the clearance rack at the Dept of Natural Resources building (DNR). They run the state parks in Indiana. Anyway, it is brown/tan, and this yarn will make a gorgeous scarf to match it. I am going to use the Broom Stick Lace pattern to make it. That is such a gorgeous stitch, can't wait to get it done. Of course I will post a photo when that happens, but don't get too impatient that is a stitch that takes a lot of time to do, plus I have to wait until I get home to start. I use a PVC pipe with rubber bands on the end so I won't loose my yarn.
|The socks have moose tracks all over the foot area.|
|Abe Marten Lodge is a hotel in the middle of the park. It is very pretty. We stayed there once and my parents stayed there too. This time of year you might as well forget getting a room, they are full.|
|See why trailers can't go through this? Can you say, "Where did my A/C go?"|
|Little dark I know. Look at all those wet tire tracks.|
|And.....we are out of the bridge.|
|The park's swimming pool sits right off to the right of these trees. Naturally it was closed.|
|A close up!|
|Here is a rest stop at the end of a trail. Cooper stuck his head out the window and barked and the horse above turned to see where that was coming from. :)|
|Poor fellow with the red halter on looks pooped out. Hard work walking trails and carrying a man on your back. They all looked tired, I'm sure the trails were muddy so that makes it harder on them.|
|See those yellow flowers/leaves?? I believe that is what is he was dragging. So cute! Maybe he was taking them home to the Mrs.|
|It was getting brighter, can you tell? I loved the rise of the hill side.|
Behind this really neat fence was the most beautiful log cabin! It was up on the hill and in too much forest to get a good picture. And someone was on the porch, didn't think that would look too good taking a picture of their house :)
And to make it better; old wagon wheel rims and Yuca plants. Wow! Great landscaping.
So from Hardin Ridge we send hugs and best wishes.
