Happy Easter, from Hurricane Mills, Tennessee

Where are we today ?

        Happy Easter to y'all out there and hope everyone has a wonderful day. For some great Easter wisdom check out this posting here, by the Princess and the Cowboy, love it!
133 miles today
        Up early this morning and just puttering around, coffees, computing and a walkabout the parking lots, garden center and the Walmart Supercenter. Surprised how busy this place is at 7:30 on a Sunday morning. It was still pretty foggy out so waited until about 9 o'clock before we hit the road, only have 133 miles to go today and were still here at Loretta Lynn's Ranch by 11:30.
        It was a good drive, thru some Tennessee hill raining most of the way again, same as yesterday.
here we are
to campground
nice cabins
porch swing
        We got set up and was still drizzly a bit so decided to take a drive into town and check out Loretta Lynn's Kitchen. Seems everything around here has her name on it. This place was pretty busy, but thats good because it was a buffet lunch and a great turnover of fresh foods. Ham, fried chicken, catfish, pulled pork, chicken a dumplings, creamed corn, mashed taters, gravy, turnip greens, hushpuppies, salads and deserts not too bad for $10.95 each. Took care of two cravings all at once, catfish and fried chicken of course w had to sample almost everything else there too!
        We had also checked out the Log Cabin Restaurant  which were told was pretty good too. But was much smaller, more expensive and had a 30 minute wait for a table So the Buffet it was, sure did the trick and no we will not be having supper today, that's our Easter Sunday feast.
too expensive small and busy
we have lunch here
very tasty
              Then checked out the gift shop, lots neat novelty stuff we don't need and didn't by.
a pet Buffalo ?
        Once we got back to the Ranch drove around a bit checking out the grounds. This place is huge! About three miles to the rear of the property where we will go tomorrow and take the tour of all there is to see here, looks impressive! Its supposed to be a nice sunny warm day tomorrow too
the long road back to more stuff to see
old tour bus
         So now relaxing in the woods here at the Ranch after a few walkabouts, compute and read for a bit. And our Mifi is not working and poor phone reception but we do have free wifi at the clubhouse behind us. So that is where I have to go to post the blog and check email.
our site, pull thru
store right behind us
        Hope ya'll had a Good Easter Sunday I know we did. 
        Come back tomorrow and we will tour Loretta Lynn's Ranch.
        Thanks for stopping in for a visit.

  1. WOW...that is one big park. I need to check out your link. We are trying to decide what route we want to use on our way back to Ohio. We might enjoy stopping there for a few days.

    Glad you had a blessed Easter day. We did too.

    1. We are looking forward to more tomorrow., but all have 50 amp.,

  2. Can't wait for tomorrow's tour....that ranch looks really pretty.

    That was some buffet!

  3. Happy Easter! Judy and I have camped there and just loved it, but we had no rain.

  4. Happy Easter! Oh I have always wanted to go to Loretta Lynn's home, can't wait to see your post. We almost went this past Fall but didn't make it. That buffet you had looked like it would be worth it to go just for that. Have fun and take lots of you won't ha ha.

    1. We are looking forward to it as well. No pictures allowed inside thou which is disappointing.

  5. Looked like a good Easter George, and the buffet looked pretty tasty too with all the choices. Enjoyed your pictures.

  6. That place is definitely huge but what fun it would be visiting the area. Thanks for sharing.

  7. It is very unique, think you need one!

    1. I would love to have one both here in Mazatlan and one at home in Kelowna.

    2. I am sure you would. We are just not ready to settle down yet down yet.!


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
