Some bald old rocks & another lake.

This is our cabin , its a substantial structure , 2 bedrooms & a sizable lounge, a great big deck & fire pit to the rear , its at the very top of Alabamas highest mountain.

Our day begins with toast & fruit with yoghurt on our deck.
A few minutes away was our first stop Bald Rock trail , a convenient boardwalk to a stunning view.

The sun peeped through the canopy , the breeze keeping us cool on our journey.

We passed another few people & after a gruelling quarter mile we reached the end.

Bald Rock. An elderly gent ( a la Pat Marriott ), was offering tour advice to any comers.

Next stop "The Devils Den " a slightly more taxing & sweaty hike to some minor falls.

Low water meant, the water barely moved , our instructions were to proceed upstream, took us a while to work out which way that was !

Our picnic lunch was enjoyed at Cheaha Lake , or poo lake as Ian named it, based on its unusual colour.

Some blurry pics of Ian & Hollie , jumping from the pontoon into the water.

Tsunami !

Ian was determined we would eat Chinese tonight, after an exhaustive search , we discovered this little gem.

Hollie tried some Thai tea..

Our meal was lovely , well done Ian for finding this joint & driving us. Tomorrow we move south , Houston & Baton Rouge are experiencing significant flooding & bad weather. Hopefully things will be better by the time we arrive.

Goodnight all xxxx
