A Lovely Day
We had a lovely day yesterday. We went to Huntsville where we met another couple who have been my friends for over 40 years. We had lunch and then went for a little train ride. The steam engine was one that had been in use and then became obsolete. Some good folk got together, restored it and now it is a tourist attraction. There were a number of people from other countries sharing the ride and they were obviously enjoying themselves.
After disembarking the train, we went to this lookout. Hubby and I want to go back again when the trees change colour. We clambered around for a while taking photos from different angles and then drove back to the main street for a cup of tea.
It was a really nice day and we came home happy and glad that we had gone out. It was a little outing to celebrate our upcoming wedding anniversary.
I am having trouble figuring out how to get the photos from my tablet to the computer but, once I can do that, I will share some more.
The body of the little boy that drowned has been recovered. I am so thankful that they family has this little bit of comfort in the midst of such a dreadful tragedy.
