Local Life - Land Between the Lakes

Greetings people, Sleeping Beauty has arisen. I thought my migraines had petered out but nooooooo.

Ever since we moved to Tennessee one of the areas thats been on our "places we have to visit" list is Land Between the Lakes. This scenic and historic area is located about 2 hours North-ish of us.
We have friends that have lived near there and friends that have vacationed there and many that have travelled through. All are in agreement that it's an interesting place to visit. So this evening I brightened my brain a bit by looking at pictures and ooohing and aahing :) (copyrighted so don't feel inclined to "borrow")
Oh joy they have a blog but their main site is
If you are of the extreme sporting type nature a triathlon is being held on 23rd. May. Mmmmm, I think my kids are on summer break by then. Maybe we will take our camping chairs, blankets and hot chocolate and go watch :)
One of the "local"quilting capitals is not too far away ........ Paducah. Now there's an interesting town to visit. THE quilt show is happening 21-24 April and is being held in 3 or 4 locations.

My daughter and her family load up the camper and head out to Land Between the Lakes, as often as they can. They always return with the best stories and pictures, it's a spectacular getaway surrounded with wildlife and nature's best.
You'll have so much fun !

Sounds like a great place to check out. And with Paducah nearby, it would really be fun for us quilters :o)
