Stephen Foster Memorial Cultral State Park: Part Deux

Here are a few pictures & info which may be repetitive of Chris's Part One but I had to post...

As you all know we are at Stephen Foster Memorial Cultural State Park in White Springs, Florida, camping with our good friends Chris & Norm... Chris has told you all about this park & cultural center... It is one of our very favorite campgrounds which we have been coming to for the last several years... We found it thanks to my cousins husband who was a Park Ranger here until last year when he retired. The campground is one of the most peaceful parks that we go to.

This is the Cultural Center which is a museum dedicated to Stephen Foster... Which is unknown to many people is that he never stepped a foot into Florida but because his song "Way down Upon the Swanee River" is our State song we have this memorial park for him. They are thinking of changing the song because they do not like the message it sends out "Old Folk's at Home". Here is another shot of the beautiful Carillon Tubular Bell Tower but with our two DH's riding their bikes around the park... The Bell tower is one of the largest in the western hemisphere with a total of 97 bells. We are in the car behind them... to many hills for us to ride a bike... LOL LOL

Inside the museum there is this great mural of Stephen Foster with many of the women he wrote songs about... also I included a one of the many dioramas which are in the museum... all depicting his songs...

Here is Tassie all snuggled up under the beautiful HUGE oak trees with the spanish moss just swaying in the breeze... In the one picture you can see Chris's motorhome behind us... It is a beautiful park for two beautiful rigs... Later in the afternoon our men folk chopped wood and built us a nice campfire to sit around... Ralph cooked Chicken for all of us on it but I forgot to get photo's of that... BAD BLOGGER! Oh spank me....

Ok... hope you enjoyed this post... Stay tuned for more adventures with Tassie

Until Later

I've Been BOO'ed

Thanks Chris & Sheila for scaring me so early in the morning.... I am thinking most people have already been Boo'ED but I will try to find some poor soul who needs a jump start...

Now this is going to be fun!! Here is how the Blogging Boo will go. Go to as many friends as you want and tell them they've been "Boo-ED". Have them link back to your blog to pick up their Halloween Treat (picture) and tell them to Boo their friends. (Then put the pic in your side bar so everyone knows that you've already been Boo-ed and to send the pic to someone else.
Are you scared yet!!??

Jimmy Carter 39th President of the USA

Plains is a quiet, peaceful small town with a small business district. Visitors come to this hometown of Jimmy Carter's to see this little southern town where a young boy grew up to become the 39th President of the United States.

This is the train tracks that brings in tourist a couple of times a week.. It is a little excursion that generates in Cordele then goes to Americus and Plains... and the second pictures is of Main Street in Plains which is the only street with a total of nine stores.

Just two more of the stores in the same block of the others... They are sure proud of their local hero who is often seen bicycle or jogging through town... He visits the businesses often.

Here is the train depot that Jimmy used as his campaign headquarters

Here is Ralph & Norm in front of local store and me in the infamous peanut disguise... Of course I had to go in and get some PEANUT BRITTLE... YUM

Billy was the colorful kid brother of President Jimmy Carter. This is the gas station he owned til he died in 1988. It is now a museum with his things in it.. Suppose their is any Billy Beer

Constructed in 1921, Plains High School is where President Jimmy Carter and the First Lady Rosalynn Carter went to school. It was a opened until 1979 and now serves as the museum and visitor center of the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site.

Here is the typical classroom from when the school was open and the auditorium

The Carter Farm was owned by his parent Earl & Lillian Carter... Jimmy Carter lived in this home from 1928 til 1941 when he went away to collage.

Living Room & Washing machine on back porch

Here is the dinning room and look they even had a meal all cooked up on it... LOL

This bathroom had a very unique shower head don't you think and Sheila this shot is for you.... I had to open a gate that keeps you out of the room just to take a picture in it...

Here is the kitchen and just look at the beautiful old stove

Jimmy's bedroom & his parents bedroom

Here are some of the outer farm buildings and I couldn't resist taking this old wagon
