Deck view yesterday...

This is our view from the deck...note the bare bank on the L where the lake is disappearing. This is normal, since this is a TVA lake that is used for hydroelectric power and other functions, mainly though, it was built to flood protect Chattanooga. Yes, our Georgia water flows north to TN, KY, and upward before heading W and S, winding up in the Mighty Mississippi and going on down to the Gulf of Mexico, plum worn out by then. It is quite an interesting process, but don't ask Dick about it unless you have an hour or two to spare, bless his heart. He is known as Mr. TVA locally and can quote chapter and verse:-)

That short bank to the R of the deck and below those trees is where Missy had the snake cornered. Fortunately, the snake has disappeared. We are seeing a bit of fall already, with the sourwoods and dogwoods popping out a bit of red already. It was 59 when I woke up at 6:30, so cooler temps are also very welcome.

Now y'all sit right down on the deck, enjoy the view, and eat one of those fresh, juicy peaches you saw yesterday. We still have a few left over. Enjoy your Tuesday. I sure will, cuz I'll see 'da boys' this morning and get some sure 'nuff good sugah...

Hey, I learned something today, I knew the Nottley River went north through Union county because of the Mountains, I had no idea it went on to NC and TN

WE found a campground in Gainsville. So you think maybe we had better bring some warmer clothes when we come in October? We thought we should.
I love your view!! Gorgeous..also so glad that you got Missy away from that snake. Oh I would have been very scared too...

Between the peaches and the pretty view from your deck, I feel the need for a vacation coming on :)
