Road Trip

DH and I took a little road trip on Saturday to Land Between the Lakes. They call it Kentucky Lake on the west and Lake Barkley on the east but it's really the Tennessee River and the Cumberland River respectively. Very beautiful scenery and lots to do if you like to camp, boating, ATV's, hike, etc. It was a little warm yesterday but we kept the windows rolled down and took a leisurely drive through the park. We had the forethought to pack a picnic lunch and we stopped at one of the many picnic tables in the shade and ate our lunch. We drove through the Elk and Bison Prairie and took a few pictures of the bison, the elk were smarter and must have hidden in the shade somewhere on their 300 acres.

The car got in the male's way as he was crossing the road and he just stood there and breathed heavily until we backed up. He didn't go around the car, it was the funniest thing.
Then Momma and baby were getting ready to cross the road too and they walked behind the car.

There are supposed to be 67 in total on this part of the prairie, so no telling where the others were. Smarter and in the shade I suppose.
On the way back home, we drove thru Clarksville and stopped at Silke's German Cafe and had some coffee and a slice of Black Forest Cake in addition to buying some bread and croissants to take home.

I cast on for a new project......the Lace Ribbon Scarf from Knitty. I am knitting it with Shibui Sock yarn, 100% superwash merino in the Mulberry colorway (S229), a wine color. I cast-on 5 different times and kept messing up. I was watching Laurel and Hardy's Saps at Sea movie and just kept losing track of where I was. I think it's an easy pattern to remember I just kept losing my place and it's not an easy one to tink because of the YO's. Maybe I need to use some stitch markers.

What a great trip! I wish there was a place nearer to us to do for the day like that!

That scarf looks like a wavy Clapotis.
