It was a big driving day today, 537 miles over 8 hours and 40 minutes. After leaving Dickson Tennessee I drove through Memphis and Little Rock. There was only light traffic and the highway leveled out and opened up making driving easy. I was on the road by 7:15 this morning and the miles flew by. Feeling rested, I just kept going! By mid-afternoon I knew it would not be a stretch to continue on all the way to the campground I had picked out in Oklahoma. I saw several Cotton Fields along the way today and managed to snap a quick dash cam of one. It almost look like snow at first glance but the temperature outside said 71 so I knew that couldn't be right!
I arrived at Sequoyah State Park just as the sun was setting and the light was incredible. Rosy pink clouds and a golden glow shone on the lake as I crossed the causeway to the peninsula.
I called ahead to see if my campsite would be available a day early but someone else is still camped there in the campground is full. I was told I could park at the visitor center until tomorrow so here I am! my sister-in-law Jane arrived just as Dexter and I were getting out of the truck and he gave her the grand tour of Wild Thing!
Jane and I drove into the neighboring town of Hulbert and had a burger at a local joint, the Boomerang Diner, and it was delicious! Check out this "Diner Dictionary " on the back of their menu!
Back at the camper I'm starting to feel the effects of the day so I studied the map of the campground while watching my friend Lynn and her weekly Simply Colorful Fibercast broadcast.
I'm looking forward to spending a couple of days here in this beautiful Park and sharing some time with family. I'm also looking forward to a good sleep tonight!
