Some exploring Belle Starr investigating and another very decent day.

Where are we today ? 
 clic a pic to enlarge it
and a nice sunrise down by the lake here
    No more rain and a nice mild night. this is good! Got a nice walkabout here first thing is the sun was rising across the lake. Gonna be a nice day.  
nice campsites here they are here full-time 25 year leases
love the trees here in the spring time
          On yesterdays posting got an Anonymous comment that we are in Bell Starr country, so I checked it out and found some very interesting information and the location of Belle Starrs cabin and burial site. Only 20 miles away, so we took off for a nice country drive to see if we could find it.
      For some very interesting information about Belle Starr click HERE an interesting read. She was named the Bandit Queen and led a very colourful short life. Back in the 1800's
not too far from here a nice country drive
       This be the place but looks like private property so we did no explore it, too bad.
the pictureI got of the cabin
    The three pictures below I took off the internet shows you what we were looking for.
the cabin being re  constructed 
the burial site
and  her Tombstone
          From here we headed back home checked out the Actufaula dam  and recreation areas . Such an amazing area around all these lakes and rivers, boating and fishing everywhere. this area would be amazing in the summer ! Pretty nice right now too!
they have nice campsites here $15 bucks a night electric an water
some nice flowers here as well
the dam here produces electricity for the area
        Heading back home another nice area to camp and fish. 
      Then back to Terra Starr and we realized this area is dedicated to Belle Starr, we are just off Belle Starr road and really so much history here is amazing!
     Back home for a light tasty lunch and a wonderful afternoon enjoying this warm weather into the low 70's F and overcast with a slight north wind, but we enjoyed a great afternoon outside reading out of the wind and a very nice view of the lakes well. We are enjoying this campground very much.
       Puttered around for a while between reading etc.. checked our tires and oil before we head out in the morning just because I can,
our view of the lake from our site
         Soon time to whip up supper, Tonight a couple Pollock fillets on the grill.cook from frozen 5 minutes a side and they always turn out perfect .
waiting for the fish to grill our view
just about done and a lemon on the grill to make it very juicy 
added to our salad was wonderful 
        Supper done, garbage done and our Weber Q stored for travel in the morning, we good to go when the spirit moves us. No rush tomorrow.
now at 6:45 pm I caught a bit of a sunset
to wrap up another wonderful day
     That was our fun last day here a bit of exploring and some very nice warm weather including a tasty supper. 
     Wanna thank you for dropping by and hope you had a great day as well.
