Rising 2,407 feet into the skies of the Deep
South, Mt. Cheaha is Alabama's tallest
A passing Stranger took this photo of us on our 19th Wedding Anniversary ... We have been away for a few days to celebrate it and have some quiet, down time free of the modern world, technology, filled with nature and stress free ...
The weather was amazing and Mt. Cheaha was so glorious with breathtaking views, waterfalls and wild life
Here is the Lodge at the top of Mt Cheaha ....it was built in the 1930's .
In 1933, land was acquired by the State of
Alabama and a cooperative state and federal
effort led to the design and construction of
Cheaha State Park. Trails were established,
picnic areas built, cabins and a stone lodge
constructed atop Alabama's highest point.
Then on July 17, 1936, the president Franklin Roosevelt issued
a proclamation establishing the Talladega
National Forest. Over the seven year period
from 1933 to 1940, Cheaha State Park and
the Talladega National Forest became
national treasures thanks to the vision of
Depression-era leaders and the hard labor
of Alabama workers.
We were lucky to wake up to this view every morning ..inside the lovely restaurant giant windows give us a complete panoramic view of the Talladega National Forest and beyond
Located in Clay and Cleburne Counties, Cheaha State Park is the pinnacle of natural beauty and awe in Alabama. Surrounded by the Talladega National Forest, this foothill of the Appalachian Mountains holds the reputation of the highest point in Alabama. Standing 2,407 ft. above sea level, it is no wonder why the local Creek Indians named this place "Chaha," meaning high place.
Whilst we were there I met this little guy ...Telling us to leave no trace ...in other words don't litter, damage etc..just like there is no trace of Bigfoot
The board walk is at the very top of the Mountain and takes you to 'Bald Rock' that shows an amazing view of Alabama and the Talledaga National Forest
It's name is a Zebra Swallowtail Butterfly
Unlike the rest of Alabama , well the deep South of it , the leaves were just coming on the trees at this altitude.
Danny enjoying a sit in the shade looking over 'Bald Rock' at the amazing view
In every nook and cranny life can be found.
The white area in the centre of the photo is Talladega Super Speed Way ...where the Nascar race was taking place that weekend.
We took the pathway through the rocks and trees on the way back.
A small amount of water came down the Waterfall.
We sat by a lake a little down the mountain and had a picnic that we bought with us from the Camp store ..it was so relaxing watching for fish to jump ...and the bird life.
On our way home we came across this lovely view with an abundance of fresh green foliage and flowers.
On the 30th April, 2018 Danny and I are celebrating our 19th Wedding Anniversary
We are celebrating it with a little break of a long weekend
19 happy, happy years of love
So happy that we got married that beautiful day.
We haven't change a bit ...ha! ha! ..
I am pleased to say that I have lost a lot of weight since this photo was taken
Danny still has all of his gorgeous hair it's just a little whiter
And he still looks at me that way
Love you Danny XX
I made this cute little Bird feeder/water holder ...though I think it's too shallow for holding water ...we will see how it comes out of the kiln.
I kind of think I over did it with the decoration but I am only going to glaze it in only two colors one for the plate and one for the two birds ...
I enjoyed making it and wanted to make an item that was not complicated and easy as I have worked on some large pieces lately ..
They will be revealed when they have been received as gifts in a few weeks time
And my medieval Italian village bowl has to dry enough first to be put in the kiln for the first time.
I am going to enter this competition ...for $100's worth of Amaco Glaze ....there are going to be thousands and thousands of people entering but I thought it would be fun to enter
So that is what I will work on, on Wednesday ..I am going to make crown ...I wanted to make one and glaze it in an off white but I will do the glaze they ask you to do for this competition .
I am super late with this announcement ...sorry but I have been so busy I haven't had time to come on here to tell you ...better late than never I guess .
As you can see I did start to write about it , but didn't get time to post it
I went on a day of looking round thrift stores last Monday with some of the girls from Pottery ..we had loads of fun ...but did not find too much.
I found this cute and super comfortable chair for my Bird Watching Corner ...I just sink down in it and it's just lovely ...I was looking for something different but when I saw this I thought it was sensible to have it .
As it won't have a 'puddle' on the seat when it rains ....I think it will do just fine for those moments that I take for myself to watch the birds or just to relax and drink in the beauty of our garden.
It was in a shop that was 'closing' down and everything was half price so I got it for just $6.00 !!!
The Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to a son.
Kensington Palace tweeted the news shortly on April 23rd,2018 at 1pm British time, stating that the child was delivered safely at 11.01hrs, weighing 8lbs 7oz.
The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth.
The Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry have been notified and are said to be “delighted.”
Three days later there’s no news on the baby’s name yet, however Prince Arthur or Alexander are the bookies favourite.
In truth no one knows.
So, why have the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge kept fans waiting?
The reason is because Wednesday marked Anzac Day – a national day of remembrance in Australia – which saw Prince William back out to work just two days after his baby boy was born.
Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams revealed that the couple would have decided to hold back their announcement in a mark of respect to Australia and New Zealand's war dead.
Instead, he believes the big reveal could happen today.
At Last we get to find out the baby's name .
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have named their new baby Prince Louis Arthur Charles.
The names honour both the Prince's grandfather, Prince Charles, and Louis Mountbatten, the Duke of Edinburgh's mentor who was killed by an IRA bomb in 1979
Prince George and Prince William both have Louis as middle names, with the announcement confounding bookies and experts who had believed it would not be repeated for the third baby Cambridge.
Arthur had been the favourite predicted first name, eventually announced as a middle name. It is also one of the Duke of Cambridge's own middle names.
Kensington Palace said: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son Louis Arthur Charles.
"The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge."
Well thanks for popping in ...it was fun ..I hope you had fun reading it
Prince Harry and Megan's Wedding is coming up on the 19th May, 2018
I can't wait
I just LOVE Prince Louis's name ...
We are having a great mini vacation
Hopefully some great photo's to share with you when we get back
