The Fishing Saga.
Bob had a boat. He also had to take us out on it. He also had to book a cabin in the lee of a nuclear power plant and a damn dam. It was a nice cabin but before I post the photos of the cabin I have to find them. Enjoy the river and the heartwarming tale of a man who never thought he would fish.
We have been here twice. BNEA specializes in aquariums and we have been to more than a dozen. This is in the top best gin the country and we encourage you to visit. It is unique among aquariums in the display.
Without question, the highlight of the trip! The highlight of the trip. Did I make it clear? It was the highlight of the trip. Starting with the ride up the mountain in the gondola (with the girl who was the highlight girl of the trip) to a string of events I never thought I would see out of Bruce, to his trouncing on the go kart track by a group of 13 year old Mennonite girls on spring break. It was heartbreaking. However, intrepid as ever, Bruce tried to outrun a rubber band and he flew like a Velcro eagle. If you only have time to see one section of the trip, these are the photos to look at.
Bob booked a cabin off Watts Bar Dam and tied the HMS Bob to the dock. Somewhere there are photos of us escaping a bee but gratefully they haven’t appeared as yet. The river photos were taken on the way to and from the dam.
No question, Highlight of the Trip 2. (Cue Rod Serling) “Imagine, if you will, the guard at a nuclear power plant. It is a slow, quiet day when the peaceful and serene environment is shattered by three men in fishing clothing asking for a tour.” Yep. That sums it up. (Remember that was 1998, long before 9/11 and today’s world.) Every time I think of it I chuckle. Havc to. We were chuckleheads after all. Great captions for the photos.
A Must See place if only for the absolute darkness and the blind fish. Since you’re going to be near there anyway check out the website. The photos give you just a glimpse of what it is like but digital camera performance was a fraction of todays so the quality isn’t great.
