A Fun Day

I've been staying with Joel and Candice since Monday. I've been having a great time, as I always do when I'm at their house. Today, we decided that we should go do something fun, but no-one could decide exactly what. So, we hopped in the car and set off to wherever the road would take us. It took us to Bagnell Dam...

Joel remarked that this picture looks like something from Gondor. Sweet! I'm being compared to Tolkien!!!!


There were probably 15 or 20 bald eagles perched in the trees around the lake. We sat for several minutes and watched them as they occasionally swooped down into the water to catch fish.
After seeing the sights at the dam, we drove on to Osage Beach to do a little shopping. Joel was fairly drooling over the nearby Grand - Glaize airport, so he rented a plane and took us flying. There was a bit of a breeze, and there were several times when I felt that I was on a roller coaster. It was all lots of fun, though.

I'm sorry about the quality, or lack thereof, of the last two pictures. Snapping photos from the cloudy window of a vibrating Cessna isn't very conducive to good quality.

  3. Joel and Cnadice are my sister and brother-in-law. Joel would probably love to take you flying sometime.
