Today was a normal wakeup, cereal etc. for breakfast. Marilyn did a couple of loads of wash, and I scanned some more family pictures into the computer. Then we drove to Tuscumbia, AL to see Helen Keller’s Birthplace. We had lunch at the Palace Ice Cream and Sandwich Shop – good ruben for me and chicken salad for Marilyn. Before driving back, we drove over to Muscle Shoals to the TVA’s Wilson dam on the Tennessee river. And, then on the way back to Red Bay, we had to stop at the Coon Dog Cemetery. They take their dogs seriously. You have to prove it is a coon dog, and the committee has to view the actual dog body before allowing it to be buried there.
Here is a picture of our house at Tiffin, and another of the campground showing the size of the repair facility.
Following are pictures of Helen Keller’s birthplace. The last two pictures are of The Moon Tree growing on the property. The seed for the tree traveled into space in the early 70s, before being planted here.
Next are pictures of the Palace where we ate lunch, and a picture of the Wilson Dam.
Finally, you have to see pictures of the Coon Dog Cemetery, signs and some of the grave markers.
