Desmond came home from his Dad's and met us so we all go off to "The Shoals" area. It was raining off and on but we managed to pull out a spectacular day despite the weather.
We stopped off at Veterans Memorial Park in Florence and enjoyed our picnic lunch of tomato sandwiches and fruit. Then we walked around the park, I have to say they really appreciate the soldiers there in Florence the memorial is impressive for such a small community.
Then we went on to find the Old Railroad Bridge which was the focus of our trip there. It is really more in Sheffield but near Florence I don't know where you call it lol. Anyway it was built in the 1830s and the top is a railroad track the bottom was a bridge traveled by horses/cars and foot. I find this bridge very fascinating and I am so glad I got to go and enjoy the beauty of it. I love that they have this historic place open to the public for a nice walk out on the Tennessee River. They have nature trails around there for plenty of exercise. :) They also have snakes lol I about stepped on one... so WATCH OUT! haha.
We closed our trip with dinner at River Bottom Grille. The atmosphere, the food, the company... it was all PERFECT. I thoroughly enjoyed our little adventure and look forward to the next one! :)
