This is the boardwalk they have built to hike out to Bald Rock. You can still hike out by a trail that is original. We used to stumble out to the rocks to look off. This is great for the handicapped. We seen Hawks, Butterflies, and 1 Eagle. Eagles are big huge birds... I had only seen pictures. It was Beautiful soaring in the wind. I could not get a picture.. Winding was blowing and it was flying by at a high rate of speed!!! lol

Cheaha, Bronchitis, & Cross Stitch ( alot of Pictures)
After being out in the wind both last Friday & Saturday I have bronchitis. I woke up Sunday with a sore throat and mild cough. By Sun night, no voice. I went with Grands to ride Thomas The Train. Great time with the family!!! They both had a great time. Saturday we went with some friends to Cheaha State Park. Beautiful sunny day. But the wind nearly blew us of the mountain. Highest mountain in the Alabama. This is picture of our friends Debra & Wayne. Looks beautiful, nut you would start to hear something roaring and turn around and here would come the wind up the side of the mountain blowing and roaring. That is why Debra has a sweater on. Not me... That may be why I have bronchitis!!! I couldn't leave my purse in their car. We were in their 30's Mercury. No locked doors.
Beautiful sight after we arrived at the end of the boardwalk. That bare area is Alabama Crop Circles! No, it is not... We have beetles that get in the pines and destroy whole areas. They have to go in and cut all the bad wood out. I waste of Pine Trees. The pines on top of the mountain are about 6 feet at their tallest top. Not enough Oxygen up there for them to grow tall. They look like Big Bonsai trees. So you are walking through a little short forest....
Hubby got tired of my coughing all night Monday night. He took me to the doctor Tuesday morning. We were first ones there.. I got a shot in the butt and 2 prescriptions. I can't take the fast acting stuff with my diabetes. I have been laying around and stitching. I am showing a picture of the Heirloom Afghan.
I also got my new Leather Kindle Case today in the mail. I cut out the middle man and ordered mine straight from China.. lol Cost way less.
I have two (2) stitched pieces that I may try to frame Friday. I had some old frames. I just need to put these in the frames and Wal la!!! I think I have bored ya'll enough. Till Later.......
