where the Jack Daniels Distillery is located and we wanted to go check it out.
Lots and lots of people…..and you know how Nolan loves lots and lots of people…..NOT!!!!!
This is where all the BBQing was going on…..too many people for Nolan so we didn’t even go down there……
He tried to talk me out of going on the free tour of the distillery but I kept saying we should go since we were already there and so he agreed. This is where you wait for the tour to start…..we only had to wait about 15 or 20 minutes for the tour.
Our tour guide
Nolan looking in the cave where they get the spring water from and of course he was wishing he had a cup so he could taste the spring water.
This was his office.
And this would be the safe he kicked that gave him an infection that killed him.
Some of the builidngs on the grounds. And a picture of some holly that has all that black mold stuff on it that seems to cover everything around.
Another picture of Jack in the inside of the visitor’s center.
All in all, even with the crowds, we had a good time. Returned back to the RV for leftover stew for dinner.
24 Oct, Sunday: Travel day……I had made reservations at Foscue Creek Park, a Corps of Engineer park in Demopolis, AL. Another great place to stay for very little money…..full hookups for $10 a night with Nolan’s Senior Golden Age pass.
As site with a lake view
We arrived around 2:00 and we had not stopped to eat so I quickly started something to eat while I was putting stuff up and opening the slides. The weather here is so nice….I think we’ll be sitting outside some.
25 Oct, Monday: Uh Oh, we may have to move to another site…..while Nolan was sitting up he discovered that the sewer didn’t look like it was draining. So today they are supposed to send someone over to look at it and if they don’t fix it, we’ll move to a different site. Started laundry and we decided to drive around the park and look at the other sites and then into town to see what’s there. No pictures, I forgot but it’s a nice little town with our favorite store……Wal Mart. Got back and in a little while the maintenance guys came and really couldn’t find anything wrong with it except they think one of the lift station pumps might not be coming on when it needs to all the time. So, we’re staying put.
26 Oct, Tuesday: Rain off and on with wind all day, seemed like a good day to find a laundry and wash the bedspread, too big for my washing machine in the trailer. Nothing too exciting except there seems to be an ant problem here……Nolan is on the prowl for ants…..every hour or so, he’s outside spraying or looking around the trailer killing them…..
27 Oct, Wednesday: Rain off and on, Nolan went to Wal Mart and I didn’t leave RV except to walk the dogs….I think Nolan is getting bored.
Couldn’t take pictures inside but they sure have a lot of his stuff and a very interesting little museum.
29 Oct, Friday: They have a very nice walking trail, about 2 miles or so and today we decided to go check the picnic area out and walk the trail.
Road to the picnic area…..
View of lake from trail…..
End of trail…..nice walk!
Later in the day we made a trip to the post office to mail post cards (I’m still finding post cards of areas and things we’re doing to mail to my great nieces and nephew) and Chago’s birthday present.
